Falkland Islands Recommended as Top Place to Go in 2013 by New York Times
(TRAVPR.COM) USA - March 7th, 2013 - [Waterbury, VT] – The Falkland Islands were named one of The New York Times’ Top 46 Places to Go in 2013. So why not visit the Falkland Islands with Quark Expeditions, the leader in polar adventures?
This archipelago itself consists of East and West Falkland, divided by Falkland Sound and is of great interest for birdwatchers. Thanks to the rich surrounding seas, the Falklands boast no less than six breeding species of penguins: king, gentoo, rockhopper, and on occasion macaroni, royal, and magellanic. With such an array of flora and fauna in the Falklands, Quark’s team of lecturers and specialists have much to provide in terms of enriching discussions on the history and fascinating wildlife of this island. Passengers will be able to explore Port Stanley, a village of 2,000 residents, including grabbing a pint at the local pub, or visiting numerous churches and museums.
Quark Expeditions will offer six departures to the Falkland Islands during the 2013 -2014 Antarctic season. The voyages vary from 17- to 23-days and are available on three different Quark vessels, offering passengers a variety of cabin styles and prices.
As an added value, passengers who make reservations by April 30, 2013, will receive up to 25% off select Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica voyages including an 19-day Epic Antarctica trip that also crosses the Antarctic Circle, and a 22-day Explorers and Kings trip that departs from Buenos Aires and features a floating Polar film Festival programmed by Hot Docs.
