Carcass Island Lodge


Carcass Island (West Falkland, Falkland Islands)


The original farmhouse towards the south of the island houses five guest rooms and provides a lovely, homely atmosphere.


Visit the gentoo penguin colony which is about one hour away on foot, right by a stunning beach. There are Magellanic penguins around the lodge (which you may hear at night!) and the local caracaras are very tame and many hang around the lodge. A little further afield is a lagoon with a lot of birdlife and a bay with elephant seals and sea lions. It is also possible to take a boat day trip across to West Point island where you can visit a rockhopper penguin colony and also a black-browed albatross colony. At sea there are good chances of seeing whales and dolphins.


Four of the rooms are en-suite with showers, there is a lounge with honesty bar, a sun (and boot) room and large dining room.

Our comments

One of the most beautiful (if not the most beautiful) island in the Falklands and definitely worth a stop on any itinerary. Your hosts are very friendly and there is no doubt you'll feel very much at home here. Cruise ships do visit and are served tea's and coffee's in the house.
