The uninhabited island known as Steeple Jason stands out among the archipelago of the western Falkland Islands as one of the most spectacular and thrilling to visit. The coastal flats around the rugged peaks are host to the largest breeding colony of black-browed albatrosses in the world, but the island is very exposed to the huge swells of the South Atlantic, so it can be visited only in the very best conditions. After a successful landing on this remarkable place, we moved on to New Island, where we visited another breeding site for albatross and rockhopper penguins, perched on the edge of a cliff high above the ocean that stretches from there to South America.
