Bark Europa:
Montevideo (UY) - Falkland Islands (FK)

16 November - 30 November 2019

Along the coast of South America. Board Bark Europa in the capital of Uruguay for an unforgettable two weeks of sailing down to the Falkland Islands. Make your way along the coast of Argentina before setting course a bit east, for the remote Falklands. Visiting the archipelago is an unforgettable adventure in itself. The local widlife includes penguins, marine mammals and albatross colonies, while the human population is under 4,000. Enjoy the break from northern autumn and spend your time sailing, discovering new places and making new friends. Switch off your cellphone and take the opportunity to admire the ocean, exotic landscapes, and the stars of southern hemisphere. The price excludes landing fee in the Falklands (approx. GBP 10-25 per person per landing, to be paid on board). Open to Windseekers of 15 years and older. Limited places in 2-person cabins available.

Ports

Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay, situated on the north shore of Río de la Plata, the arm of the Atlantic Ocean that separates Uruguay from Argentina; with Buenos Aires on the other side. Visit the Ciudad Vieja with the city’s oldest buildings, several museums, art galleries and the Mercado del Puerto. Walk over the Rambla, a coastal avenue. Go to Fortaleza del Cerro for a view over the bay. Walk through the botanical gardens of parque Prado. Enjoy the beach (13 km) or Uruguayan tango.

Falkland Islands is a British overseas territory and an archipelago at the very south of South American continent. The breathtaking nature is the main reason for tourism, with amazing landscapes and numerous species of birds (including pinguins), seals and dolphins. Even if you’re not much of a nature lover you will still find things to do. Check out the local woolen crafts – or join workshops to make some yourself; see a traditional dance performance and don’t miss The Historic Dockyard Museum.
