    From Hopperstad stave church is the oldest of Norway's one. It was probably built around 1140. Unfortunately, could not be saved from decay, but experienced a fantastic reconstruction in 1880. A visit is recommended in any case.

    Nice tour of a Medieval Church. Very interesting both inside and out. It is a beautiful church and well-worth stopping.  more »

    Amazing piece of architecture. I hope to return in a season when I can go inside. Such a lovely little valley around it, too.

    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. It did feel as though we werr protected by an over turned wooden ship. 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 .
