We depart Stanley and head for Estancia Farm.

 

During this journey, you will receive an overview of the political and socio-economic history of the Islands as you depart Stanley.

 

The coach will travel directly to the epicentre of the main battles fought during the conflict in 1982 of which your guide may have first-hand knowledge.

 

Along the route you will enjoy the beautiful, panoramic views, taking in the famous Boot Hill and the wind turbines that supply the capital with up to 40% of its energy requirements, and the spectacular stone runs.

 

When you arrive at Estancia Farm, your guide will explain the events that led up to the 1982 conflict culminating with the arrival of the British Forces at San Carlos on Landing Day.

 

You will have the chance to get off the bus to photograph the views as your guide explains the yomp from San Carlos and the battle for Goose Green.

 

Heading back to Stanley, your guide will explain how British forces moved forwards and positioned themselves in the mountains surrounding Stanley.

 

There will be two more stops for photo opportunities at the site of the wreckage of the Chinook and the Puma helicopter sites and you can enjoy a view of Stanley and the surrounding five battle sites that took place in the run up to the Liberation of Stanley on 14th June, 1982.
