Experience the war-torn areas of the Falkland Islands in this emotional historical tour.

In 1982, the Falkland Islands played host to a war between Argentinean troops and the British Task Force, in a pivotal moment in history over possession of these said lands. The war ended with the invading Argentineans surrendering, which the British accepted, thus ensuring the maintenance of the Falkland Islands as a British colony to this day.

There are numerous battlefields and sites scattered throughout the region, which still bear remnants of this historic war. There are fallen planes, used munitions, bunkers, foxholes and minefields, each telling its own story. There are also museums, monuments and sites, such as cemeteries used in the battle.
