The Falkland Islands, located in the South Atlantic Ocean, have been an overseas territory of the United Kingdom since 1833, but over the years have been claimed by France, Spain, and—most contentiously—Argentina. Remote and windblown, this distant destination is known for its spectacular penguin, seal, and albatross populations. An increasingly popular port of call for adventure tourists, the Falklands remain a haven of singular cultural and environmental significance.
