This is one of the last medieval church named "starve church". The church, with the cemetery around, lies in a beautiful landscape and is a real wonder. The entry of the church is not free but you can admire the church and wandering around freely

Called here and so glad we did. The place is beautiful! An original building with a rich history. Make sure to look out for the carvings of runes and animals.

I lived in Kvitfjell for some months and i had the opportunity to visit this church one day. It's a must go if you visit this area, a church from the 13th century that has been well conserved in norwegian hands !
