From NOK 168
This trip takes you from Kristiansund via Bruhagen to Kvernes and Kvernes stave church.
Kvernes stave church is a beautiful and special stave church.
New research in 2020 discovered the true age of Kvernes Stave Church, it was built in the period 1631 – 33, and not in the 13th century as previously assumed. This makes Kvernes unique: it is Norway’s only stave church built after the Middle Ages.
Inside the church you can find a choir screen with crucifix and royal monogram, baroque pulpit, painted acanthus decorations. The altarpiece is from 1475, but was framed in baroque style in 1695.
Located with a magnificent view over the Kvernes fjord and the Frei fjord, the church bears witness of a strong ritual and religious of this place, also in pre-Christian times.
Next to the church you also find Gamle Kvernes bygdemuseum, a museum with old buildings, an archaeological exhibition and various activities.
Note! Tickets to the stave church and the museum are not included in this roundtrip.
