This is a list of all the Ultra prominent peaks (with topographic prominence greater than 1,500 metres) in Antarctica. Some islands in the South Atlantic have also been included and can be found at the end of the list.

Mount Markham is a twin-peaked massif surmounting the north end of Antarctica's Markham Plateau. The main peak has an elevation of 4,350 metres (14,272 ft) and the lower sub-peak is 4,280 metres (14,042 ft) high. Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition of 1901–1904), it is named for Sir Clements Markham, who, as President of the Royal Geographical Society, planned the expedition and chose Robert Falcon Scott as its leader. Mount Markham is the fourth-highest ultra prominent peak in Antarctica.
Mount Discovery is a conspicuous, isolated stratovolcano, lying at the head of McMurdo Sound and east of Koettlitz Glacier, overlooking the NW portion of the Ross Ice Shelf. It forms the center of a three-armed mass of which Brown Peninsula is one extension to the north; Minna Bluff is a second to the east; the third is Mount Morning to the west.
Mount Frakes is a prominent shield volcano marking the highest elevation in the Crary Mountains, in Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica and is the third highest volcanic elevation on the continent.
Antisana is a stratovolcano of the northern Andes, in Ecuador. It is the fourth highest volcano in Ecuador, at 5,704 metres (18,714 ft), and is located 50 kilometres (31 mi) SE of the capital city of Quito.
Mount Français is a mountain which forms the summit of Anvers Island, Antarctica standing southeast of the center of the island and 6 miles north of Borgen Bay. Mount Français has an elevation of 2,760 metres (9,055 ft) and is part of the Trojan mountain range.
Mount McClintock is the highest mountain in the Britannia Range in Antarctica, surmounting the south end of Forbes Ridge, 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) east of Mount Olympus. It was discovered by the Discovery expedition (1901–04) and named for Admiral Sir Leopold McClintock, Royal Navy, a member of the Ship Committee for the expedition.
Smarts Mountain is a 3,238-foot-high (987 m) mountain in the town of Lyme in Grafton County, New Hampshire, United States. Smarts is flanked to the north by Mount Cube, at 2,909 feet (887 m), and to the southwest by Holts Ledge, at 2,110 feet (640 m). Although of only moderate elevation, Smarts is separated from the southwestern White Mountains by Oliverian Notch, a fairly low pass traversed by New Hampshire Route 25 southwest of Mount Moosilauke. That gives Smarts a relative height of 2,190 ft (670 m), which makes it one of twelve mountains in New Hampshire with a prominence over 2,000 ft (610 m).
Mount Arlan is an 1,880-metre (6,168 ft) peak in the western plains of Turkmenistan in Balkan Province. Mount Arlan stands about 2,000 metres above the shore of the below-sea level Caspian Sea. It is the highest point of the Balkan Daglary range. The town of Balkanabat, the capital of Balkan Province, lies 25 km to the southwest.
An ultra-prominent peak, or Ultra for short, is a mountain summit with a topographic prominence of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) or more; it is also called a P1500. There are approximately 1,524 such peaks on Earth. Some well-known peaks, such as the Matterhorn and Eiger, are not Ultras because they are connected to higher mountains by high cols and therefore do not achieve enough topographic prominence.
The topographic isolation of a summit is the minimum distance to a point of equal elevation, representing a radius of dominance in which the peak is the highest point. It can be calculated for small hills and islands as well as for major mountain peaks, and can even be calculated for submarine summits.
Mount Supernal is a large double summit mountain (3,655 m) surmounting the southeast corner of Hercules Neve and the heads of the Gair and Meander Glaciers, in Victoria Land, Antarctica. The feature has at times been mistaken for Mount Murchison. Named by the northern party of New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition (NZGSAE), 1962–63, because of its prominent and lofty appearance.
Mount Lister is a massive mountain, 4,025 metres (13,200 ft) high, forming the highest point in the Royal Society Range of Victoria Land, Antarctica. It was discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901–04) which named it for Lord Joseph Lister, President of the Royal Society, 1895–1900.
Mount Gaudry is a mountain, 2,315 metres (7,600 ft) high, rising close southwest of Mount Barre and 5 nautical miles (9 km) north-northwest of Mount Liotard in the southern part of Adelaide Island, Antarctica. It was discovered by the French Antarctic Expedition, 1903–05, under Jean-Baptiste Charcot, who named it after Albert Gaudry, a prominent French paleontologist.
Mount Verne is a mountain standing 6 nautical miles (11 km) east of Bongrain Point and dominating the south part of Pourquoi Pas Island, off the west coast of Graham Land. It was first sighted and roughly surveyed in 1909 by the French Antarctic Expedition under Charcot, and then resurveyed in 1948 by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). It was named by them for Jules Verne, the author of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Other features on Pourquoi Pas Island are named after characters in this book.
Mount Brewster is a small peak (2,025 m) that rises above the general level of the central part of Daniell Peninsula and marks its greatest elevation, in Victoria Land. Named in 1841 by Sir James Clark Ross for Sir David Brewster, Scottish physicist.
Mount Murchison is a mountain in Victoria Land, Antarctica. Sources differ as to whether Murchison is the highest peak of the Mountaineer Range; or the second highest if Mount Supernal is considered part of the range.
The Maja e Çikës, at 2,044 metres (6,706 ft) above sea level, is the highest peak of the Ceraunian Mountains. The Ceraunians extends approximately 100 kilometres (62 mi) along the Albanian Riviera in a northwesterly direction from Sarandë to the Karaburun Peninsula. With a prominence of 1,563 metres (5,128 ft), Maja e Çikës is the 85th most prominent mountain peak in Europe.
