Mount Longdon, Stanley

4.8
#1 of 7 in Nature in Falkland Islands
Mount Longdon provided the setting for a dramatic battle between British and Argentine forces in 1982. Explore the area to find old cannon and bunkers from the war, or climb to top of the mountain to soak in magnificent views of the surrounding scenery. The cold weather and severe wind remind visitors of the difficult conditions soldiers faced during the two-day battle.
