The Adventure - Getting there
Our Bluff Cove Lagoon shore-side representatives greet our guests off the tenders at the Stanley pier. Jane, Larissa or Jenny take care of our guests, answer questions and help our guests on to our distinctive Bluff mini-buses.
|Trudi, Rudy and Jason, our mini-bus driver/guide team, give excellent informative presentations on the 20 minute bus ride through Stanley and along the road to Bluff Cove; through the 1982 battlefields and stunning stone-runs, flowing down the mountainsides. Each guest is given one of our tour information leaflets which include maps of the area and interesting wildlife facts.|
|At the farm, our guests are handed over to our strong local team of Land-Rover drivers for the 30 minute off-road adventure. The convoy navigates the stone-runs, weaves across a valley, up and over a rocky ridge then down to the beautiful, remote and tranquil Lagoon. |
Each driver brings his/her own modern, well-maintained, fully insured, 4x4 vehicle; an individual personality and wonderful character.
At The Lagoon
Our guests are met at the penguin rookery by our helpful and knowledgeable rangers, who will answer any wildlife questions guests may have.
|Our guests have an hour to enjoy the wildlife at the rookery and beach. As well as the many Gentoo penguins they will also see our growing colony of King penguins.|
|At the rookery, we have benches, so our guests can watch the penguins in comfort. Guests with disabilities can be driven down from the rookery to the café and beach, by one of our friendly wardens.|
The Sea Cabbage Café and Bluff Cove Museum are tucked under a grass bank facing the beautiful long white sand beach. In comfortable warm rooms, heated by a traditional peat stove, guests can enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate served with heaps of delicious home-baked cakes, cookies and scones with local diddle dee jam, all to lively tunes played by our resident musicians. Guests can also enjoy looking around the museum at the interesting displays depicting Falkland life, watch spinning demonstrations and browse around the museum shop. Modern restroom facilities are found at both.
After an hour, our team of drivers return guests to our minibus team, and they are driven back to Stanley, where they can explore and shop for the rest of their day in the Falklands.
