Silversea Expedition Cruises À SAUNDERS ISLAND

Gentoo Penguins

Meet some of the world’s most incredible wildlife, on the remote Saunders Island. Sitting to the north-west of the Falkland’s archipelago, the British established their first settlement here in 1765, at Port Egmont. Remote, wild and wonderful, the island now serves as a lush grazing ground for plenty of sheep - but it's an astonishing place to encounter far rarer animals - from elephant seals to silvery grebes and Peale’s dolphins.

Connected by sinewy links of beach and sandy dunes, which create some of the most dramatic scenery in the Falklands, the archipelago’s fourth biggest island is home to its best birdlife - including a colony of neatly tuxedoed king penguins. Saunders Island's topography tightens at The Neck - where you'll find even more penguin activity. Colonies squark and chatter in huge crowds here, with Gentoo, Rockhopper and Magellanic penguins dipping into the water, and clambering over boulders. A gentle hike to the summit of Mount Richards will take you 457 metres above sea level, offering an expansive overview, from which you can look out across the tips of the moody waves to see Carcass Island and West Point Island emerging. The cliffs to the north of the mountain host rare black-browed albatross - a sight of sheer grace in flight - but comically clumsy at times when landing. Elsewhere, wide lakes are home to various water birds - including the rare black-necked swans. Take a read of our blog to find out more about the hugely diverse wildlife that is present on this unique island.

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

After a wet landing onto a white sandy beach the Expedition team will start the hike with a very slow gradual sloping beach walk. The hike to the viewpoint at the cliffs is approximately 1.4km one way with gradual elevation gain of 50m over sandy and rocky cliffs . Once at the viewpoint enjoy the spectacular abundance of Black-browed Albatross and Rock-hoper penguin colonies and interpretation from the Expedition team about habitats, weather, reproduction and so much more.
