Falkland Islands Travel Guide
The landscape is mountainous with low-lying undulating areas in the south of East Falkland. The highest peak is Mt Usborne at only 2313ft. The terrain is covered in grassland, shrubs, peat bogs and occasional quartzite boulders but there are no native trees. The abundant, often unusual wildlife is the single biggest attraction for the few tourists who venture there, with colonies of penguins, elephant seals and sea lions getting pride of place. The Falklanders are traditionally very friendly welcoming visitors into their homes and more than glad of the company.
