Upon arrival at the Jetty Visitor Centre one of our guides will meet you and settle your group on the bus.
We will first journey through the outskirts of Stanley and onto the main road that links Stanley to the rest of East Falkland. As we travel along the mountain range that runs east-west through the northern part of East Falkland, your guide will tell you about the early life and history of the Islands, starting from 1833.
Along the way you will see other highlights including the wind farm, a number of small farms and the vast expanse on East Falkland. Your guide will give you a broad overview of the social, cultural and economic history as well as a glimpse of the modern Falklands.
On arrival at Goose Green you will leave the bus and visit the farm hall where our guide will provide more information about the role of the hall during the 1982 conflict. There are toilets at this location, and you will receive a snack and drink.
We then move on to Darwin Cemetery.
