This lovely, small, simple wooden church sits just above the town & offers a scenic view of the fjord below. It is only a 10-15 minute walk from the port. I found that walking uphill to visit the church & returning to port via the steps/trail by the waterfall made for a nice, short scenic hike.

First stop of the seeking the northern lights cruise. It nice port to enter but not a very scenic port . The town Center is approx 12 minutes away and there is uphill and how hill involved. There is a big Main Street of shop and restaurants all the town port . Not a lot else and shop prices are expensive compared to home
There is a shopping centre which has the normal store/ supermarket and toilets as there were none in the town. A old early 1900 church is the main building

The church was open when I got there, but I decided to look at the view first and just as I walked up the steps to enter the church, the door was shut in front of me. What a shame, It looked very unusual from the outside and it can be seen from quite a distance away.

Stordahl’s beautiful landscape is enhanced by what locals call the Rose Church. The church is over 210 years old. From what I have read, the church got its name from painted floral decorations and wood carvings inside. Unfortunately for us, we were only able to see the outside as we passed through Stordahl on our way to the Trolls Road. Besides the church, the Stordahl area is known for both salmon fishing and furniture making.

Came across this little octagonal church by accident as we took the wrong road back to the pier . It has to be in the most stunning location for any church and graveyard.

If you walk back into town down the road you will come across this lovely old church which sits proudly overlooking the town and fjord below. It is worth a visit.

Built in 1842, the church has a commanding location on the edge of a hill, just a bit below the Union Hotel. Its octagonal shape strikes your eye. Just open the metal closing mechanism and appreciate the well kept cemetery. Capacity is in the area of 140 people. It is a small church. I was lucky enough to visit when some solo practice was taking place. An organist was in the loft, the pianist [in bare feet] going between the altar area and the organ. The colours are a bit unusual, adding to the charm of the place.

Church was opened midday when we arrived. No fee. Surrounded by graveyard with apparently only 12 surnames from the farm fjord families. Beautiful final resting place overlooking the fjord. Pastor has several churches so services are only held here once every three weeks. Small boat was hanging from the ceiling apparently symbolizing the importance of boats in our h area. Small octagonal church with colorful, carved pulpit and beautiful painting above the altar. Great view of fjord from here for photos.

I stopped in Geiranger on a cruise. I had time prior to my afternoon excursion to explore the town. The main road takes you up to this church. I happened to be in this stop on Norway Day so the town was out - and outfitted - in celebration. Although the church was closed, my uphill hike was rewarded with gorgeous views of the town and the fjord. Of course, the spectacular day of bright blue skies and brilliant sun did not in any way hamper the experience! In addition to the views, I enjoyed the simplicity of the church. I also enjoyed exploring the grave yard that surrounds the church. Great photo spot.
