The Falkland Islands are a pristine landscape of endless horizons, colours and contrasts with stunning seascapes to match. There is plenty of space and scenery to enjoy.
Subtle hues of greens and yellows, boulder-strewn hills and tiny red-and-white settlements nestling into the land create beautiful vistas. Shimmering seas reflect the sun in an amazing array of brilliant blues and aqua-marines. Kelp forests twist and turn, in shades of subdued browns and greens, as they follow the ebb and flow of ocean currents. All set against a backdrop of ever-changing skies, from brilliant daytime blues to reds, crimsons and golds of the setting sun.
The offshore islands to the west of the archipelago are characterised by jagged cliff tops and rugged peaks, some dropping steeply, others sweeping down to long white sand beaches, inviting coves and boulder-strewn shores. Large ponds are features of open plains. Rocky outcrops and small tussac islands dot the coastline. Contrast these with small islands to the east which are flatter but no less scenic with open land and magnificent seashores.
West Falkland has both rugged and rolling terrain with a mix of spectacular cliffs, hills, hidden valleys and flat lakelands. In the south are rock formations known as “Indian Village” due to their unusual wig-wam shapes. Impressive stone runs are found on East Falkland. These rivers of rock tumble down the hillsides, some stream-like, others very wide. Travel south in East Falkland to the Great Plain of Lafonia for miles and miles of uninterrupted golden grasslands. Both East and West boast beautiful beaches and lovely shores.
Stop awhile to watch the changing patterns and colours of the seas. Admire the shifting light as the sun sets, casting a range of hues across the hills. The Falklands are a great place to simply relax and enjoy the views.
