Breaking news from the Falkland Islands Tourist Board office in London. Tony Mason, Director of International communications has announced the Falkland Islands has WON the award for the second year in a row for “Best Destination for Wildlife and Nature” in the Selling Travel Magazines, “Agents Choice Awards.”

 More than 1,000 travel agents worldwide voted in this year’s awards making it the most successful awards programme for Selling Travel Magazine to date.

Other destinations nominated in the category were Alaska, Azores, The Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Botswana, and South Africa.

Mr. Mason said he would be accepting the award on behalf of everyone involved with tourism to the Falkland Islands both on the Islands and our tourism partners worldwide. A ceremony will be held in London’s Canary Wharf on Monday 2nd November at 3pm when the award will be presented.

Mr. Mason said both land-based and cruise tourism to the Falklands is important to the Islands economy and he appreciated all of the travel agents and tour operators that had made commitments and partnered with us for the coming years.

Mr. Mason also thanks the voters, who are travel agents, saying it is very important to take notice of the people who voted for the Falklands… they are either already selling the Falklands or have shown a keen interest in selling future holidays to the islands.

He also noted that being up against such worthy contenders for the award made winning the award all the more special. He went on to invite tourism to the Falkland Islands describing the Islands as a “must see to believe” destination.

Mr. Mason extends his congratulations to everyone working in the tourism industry in the Falklands! He said this award is for you and something to be very proud of! Well done!

    Un murmure de paix.

    Dans la vigne
    un regard
    assoupi qui
    chante le
    matin et la
    voix du soleil.

    We all know your opinions - you are just repeating your usual crap.

    Crap, especially, as in spite of your threats, you have never even been in the Falklands. What an idiot!
