Falkland Islands Information Portal

The Falkland Islands are located 400 miles east of the southern tip of South America.  With a resident  population of around 2900, we are a friendly and closeknit community.

The purpose of this portal is the provision of up-to-date information to the local community and to prospective visitors to the Islands.  We welcome your suggestions on future content. 

Information provided at present in this portal includes current flight schedules, hourly weather updates, public holidays and other useful information, the history of the Falkland Islands, geographical and other background information, recommended reading material, and a links database which contains over 200 websites that are relevant to the Falkland Islands.

If you are looking to be "interactive" you can participate in our forums, check or enter an event in the calendar or publish a Falklands picture into our website Gallery.
