The best known geographic landmark in Antarctica is the South Pole, the southernmost point on the planet, which was first reached by Roald Amundsen in 1911. Vinson Massif is the highest mountain on the continent while the Ross Ice Shelf is the largest floating ice formation. Ross Island is the home of the volcano Mount Erebus. The Antarctic Penninsula is the warmest part of the continent, where plant life is most abundant.
