Carcass Island

Antarctic Peninsula

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Falkland Islands

Carcass Island 

The north-west of the archipelago, is owned by Rob and Lorraine McGill. The traditional island high-tea with home-backed cakes and cookies should not be missed. 

Carcass Island is rodent free and hence has a bounty of birdlife from breeding Magellanic and Gentoo penguins, to numerous waders and passerine birds including several endemics to the islands such as the Cobb’s wren and the Tussack bird.
