In Hvalnes you have an amazing view of the mighty mountain Eystrahorn, which is rising above the farm of Hvalnes. The mountains are made of Gabbro and Granophyre.

Gabbro is a phaneritic, mafic intrusive igneous rock formed from the slow cooling of magnesium-rich and iron-rich magma into holocrystalline mass deep beneath the earth’s surface.  Slow-cooling, coarse-grained gabbro is chemically equivalent to rapid-cooling, fine-grained basalt. Much of the Earth’s oceanic crust is made of gabbro, formed at mid-ocean ridges.

Granophyre is a subvolcanic rock that contains quartz and alkali feldspar in characteristic angular intergrowths

Note that the farm is built in the same shape as the mountains above. In Hvalnes we also have a beautiful photogenic orange lighthouse along with a great view over the eastern coastline.
