Utstein kloster (Utstein Abbey)
Utstein kloster (Utstein Abbey) Review
Founded in the late 1200s, Utstein is the best preserved medieval monastery in Norway. Public transport to the abbey isn't that good, so it's best to hire a car. By bus or car it's about a half-hour trip, north of Stavanger on a coastal highway. If you rent a car to get to Utstein, you can also take in the medieval ruins and stone age rock carvings on nearby Åmøy Island as well as Fjøløy Fyr, a lighthouse.
