The Falkland Islands, an archipelago comprised of two large islands and several hundred smaller ones, are ringed by a rugged coastline, and for the most part are hilly, rocky and covered with low shrubs and coarse grass.
Hills and low mountains cover the central areas of both large islands, including the Wickham Heights and Hornsby ranges. Shallow streams, ponds and tiny lakes cover a very small percentage of the land.
