The Twin Peaks are two sharply defined peaks, 750 metres (2,500 ft) high, standing together 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of Mount Taylor and 2 miles (3 km) west of the head of Hope Bay at the north-east end of the Antarctic Peninsula. They were discovered by the Swedish Antarctic Expedition, 1901–04, under Otto Nordenskiöld, and named by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey following their survey of the area in 1946.
