Port Stanley, Falkland Islands-port

Located about 480 miles northeast of Cape Horn, the Falklands Islands are the most easily accessible sub-Antarctic islands. The English navigator, John Davis, aboard the Desire made the first confirmed sighting of the Islands in 1592. The Falklands have been a disputed area between Great Britain and Argentina. Argentina invaded and occupied the islands in April 1982, spurring a British counter-invasion that June. With all the charm of a rural English village, Stanley is characterized by its bright rooftops, red telephone boxes, shops, and local pubs. Nearby is the Grave Cove penguin colony.

    After joining the coach at the pier, you will depart Stanley travelling west while your guide provides an overview of the political and socio-economic history of the Islands. The coach will travel directly to the epicentre of the main battles fought during the conflict in 1982, en route you will enjoy beautiful panoramas taking in the famous “Boot Hill” and the wind turbines that supply the capital with up to 40% of its energy requirements. During this part of the journey your guide will explain the events that led up to the 1982 conflict culminating with the arrival of British Forces at San Carlos on Landing Day as you arrive at Estancia Farm.

    Estancia Farm became a base for hundreds of British troops from the beginning of June 1982. A large group of local men and women went to Estancia Farm to help look after the troops, even using their off road driving skills to move munitions under the cover of darkness up the mountain sides.

    The coach will stop here and passengers can leave the bus to enjoy the views west while the Guide explains about the famous “yomp” from San Carlos and the battle for Goose Green. The coach will depart here heading east towards Stanley while the Guide explains how British forces moved forwards and positioned themselves around the mountains surrounding Stanley. The Coach will make 2 further stops, the first at the site of the wreckage of the Chinook and Puma and the second at a location where passengers can enjoy the view of Stanley and the surrounding five battle site mountains, while the Guide provides details about the final battles that took place in the run up to the Liberation of Stanley on 14th June 1982.

    Please Note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of walking/standing, at times over unpaved surfaces. While the walking portion of the tour is not suitable for wheelchair guests, it is permissable to remain on the coach. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Warm, comfortable clothing, a warm cap and flat walking shoes are recommended.
