At Vikavågen there is folded and deformed calc-silicate/marble bedrock, exposed between the small road and the shoreline. Parking is available at the small turnaround between the houses. From here, there is only a short walk to well-exposed outcrops exhibiting strongly folded alternating layers of marble and calc-silicate rocks. The entire outcrop is a large xenolith in the Vega granite intrusion. It extends about one km northwards from Vikavågen (mostly covered by vegetation) and is surrounded by granite. The contact between the granitic host and the xenolith is clearly exposed at some places and makes this location a good pedagogical example for telling the story of the Vega granite intrusion and the partially melted sedimentary rocks found within it. The xenolith has in some parts well-preserved preserved layered structure, whereas other parts are heavily deformed.
