  • Very already located on the South side of the Lustrafjord on a hillside. Beautiful view from there across the fjord. Drive around this road on the South side. Called also romantic road. You come back there to Skjolden and from there on the other side of the fjord. A nice round trip of about 70 km. Very narrow road with beautiful trees.

  • A incredible place! I wasn't so impressed of the church but the surrounding is breathtaking. I really recommend you to go to this place!
  • A must see for everyone who loves history. The stave church is very well preserved. The main attraction are the Viking carvings from 11th century - these are incredible. We had a very good guide that explained everything and enjoyed our visit very much.
  • This is the church with the sign of my marriage. A wonderful atmosphere and very magic location! MUST SEE for ANY mystic interest!
  • One of the most beautiful stave churches. Extraordinary wooden carvings. Quiet rural area, great view over the Lustra fjord.
  • A lovely old church in a beautiful location, all brought to life by a knowledgeable guide.
