If you have time, take a walk up from the harbor to see this little church. It is interesting. You will then see other areas of the town.

if you're in town, it's a short walk from the port and just a few minutes from the Union Hotel. If you're walking along the Fossevandring, it's worthwhile to stop in.

When you are nearby, stop here for a second. The church is small, but looks amazing in its surroundings.

This was a disappointing stop as the church was closed when we were in port. I found that so unusual since it is such a small community and there were two cruise ships in port.

We were hiking up the steep switchback road as far as we could go and ran across this beautiful little octagonal shaped church. You can go inside for a look. It is surrounded by a lovely and well maintained cemetery. Nearly every single plot has...More

A nicely maintained little wooden church. If you have seen a number of churches in Norway before, I doubt you will find it a standout - yet it is definitely worth to see. You do not even have to make a detour, since it is...More

Walked to this beautiful church. Reminded us of the Methodist chapels back home with its simplistic charm and upstairs balcony. The grave yard is a credit to those maintaining it. Many graves indicated long livers with several people making it into their hundreds. Views from...More
