Mount Longdon, Stanley

4.8
#4 of 6 in Parks in East Falkland
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.

  • For a taste of what Falklands battlegrounds were like, this is the place. You can easily retrace the steps of the British troops as they stormed the top... it's quite a hike so take your time and wear...  more »
  • A place for any visitor who looks for answers about the armed conflict of the 82. It was the scene where the most fierce combat between the troops of RI 7 on the Argentine side, and for 2 by the British side was fought. Ideal for the lovers of the trekking, and a good support with specific bibliographical reading.

  • Place where the final battles of 1982 were spared. You can still see remnants of that era. It is a must-see to close the story. It is advisable to hire a guide who knows how to count events. We have a Chilean who lived on the island, Fernando Cordero, that we hire for excursions, which guided us fantastic, responsible and friendly.
