GETTING TO THE FALKLANDS
Choose the Falkland Islands as part of a South American or Antarctic cruise, an increasingly popular way of visiting the Islands which often allows visitors opportunities to take shore excursions unavailable to land-based tourists. Adventurous travelers may make their own way by private yacht.
LAN flies to the Falklands every Saturday morning, departing from Santiago and flying via the southern Chilean city of Punta Arenas. Once a month the flight also stops in Rio Gallegos (Argentina) in both directions.
Depending on international connections, It is usually necessary to spend a night in Chile (in Santiago or Punta Arenas) on both south-bound and north-bound flights. LAN is a oneworld partner and connects with international carriers in Europe, North America, Australasia, and Africa.
