Stanley is situated in the North East of East Falkland, with 85% of the overall population of the islands living here of the total population of approximately 3,200 people (2016 census), is the most remote and smallest capital in the world. Despite its relatively small size, Stanley offers all the amenities and interests expected of a capital.

A small, tidy and colourful town, Stanley is must for all our clients, being both a place to relax for a couple of days, taking in the walks around the town, the museum, war memorials and the hospitality of the town’s people, and a destination to plan day trips in to the surrounding countryside.

Some of the day trips available from Stanley include visits to:
