This tour is very different from the other tours provided. See a rare glimpse into the Falklands way of life, the amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes of mainland West Falkland on this 4×4 vehicle adventure. The tour involves being a driving passenger around the West mainland, both on and off road. Remember off road in the Falklands means completely off road, not even a grass track in some cases.
