San Carlos River


Located in the northeast of East Falkland, the San Carlos river is a slow flowing river with some pools and good fishing at the estuary in the main season. The river rises between the Wickham Heights and White Mountain, flowing northwest, then northwards and finally westwards to Falkland Sound. Permission is needed to fish and advice about the best places is also useful. Ask accommodation providers or the Falkland Islands Tourist Board for further details.

Accommodation is available at San Carlos and Port San Carlos, or the river can be reached by day trip from Stanley.
