  • An easy 15 minutes by boat from Balestrand and then a lovely walk to the church. The guide shared interesting historic & architectural facts with us....and as Rick Steves suggested we lied down on the floor and took sensational photos of the wooden arches and ceiling.

This Is maybe the only stave church I will see on this trip....and visiting this one built around the year 1000 was well worth the time spent getting here. 5 stars from me....simple and easy...and fascinating .
  • Excellent!
  • An unforgettable experience in beautiful country full of scents and colours accented by a beautiful sunny day in mid-August, offering history and architecture and design techniques quite interesting! Here again immediately!
