The Larsemann Hills are a series of low rounded coastal hills along the southeastern shore of Prydz Bay, Antarctica extending for 9 nautical miles (17 km) from Dålk Glacier. They were discovered in February 1935 by Captain Klarius Mikkelsen from the whaling ship Thorshavn, sent out by Norwegian whaling magnate Lars Christensen, and given this name.

The bedrock of the Larsemann Hills contains an unusually high abundance of boron and phosphate minerals and is the location of the discovery of four new species of mineral. In 2014, the Stornes Penininsula within the Larsemann Hills was declared an Antarctic Specially Protected Area due to its mineral diversity. [Wikipedia]
