Country Highlights

Falkland Islands and Its Tourism Industry

In recent years, tourism has emerged as an increasingly important part of the Falkland Islands’ economy. The direct contribution of tourism was nearly £18.6 million in 2019, accounting for approximately 3% of GDP. While small compared to other industries like fishing, tourism revenues have been growing steadily.

A major draw for visitors to the Falklands is the opportunity for wildlife viewing. As one of the least populated places on Earth, the islands offer a unique chance to observe diverse species in their natural habitat. Iconic animals like penguins, sea lions, albatrosses and dolphins are major attractions. The unspoiled landscapes and lack of invasive species also make the Falklands a top destination for birdwatchers.

In 2022, there were 3,519 tourist arrivals in the Falkland Islands, with 787 visitors traveling for leisure purposes. This marked a substantial increase in arrivals, highlighting the growing interest in the destination. Tourism is the second-largest industry in the Falkland Islands, following fisheries. The sector has experienced significant growth, with land-based tourism and cruise ship visits contributing to the islands’ economy. The transport and hospitality sector is expected to make a substantial contribution to the GDP, with tourism forming a significant part of this figure.

Ecotourism in particular has taken off, with many visitors coming to experience the natural beauty of the islands in a sustainable way. In 2022, there were over 3,500 tourist arrivals, a significant increase from previous years. Staying in eco-lodges and taking guided excursions that prioritize minimal environmental impact have become increasingly popular options. As awareness of conservation issues grows, this type of responsible tourism is well-positioned for continued growth.

As a leader in strategic consulting, Ruskin Felix Consulting (RFC) has worked with local stakeholders to analyze tourism trends and opportunities in other countries. For Falkland Islands’ RFC consultants can provide guidance on developing sustainable infrastructure like hiking trails, observation decks, and electric vehicle rentals. RFC can also assist with tourism marketing initiatives highlighting the Falklands’ unique flora, fauna and cultural heritage.
