Southern Norway Sights

Utstein kloster (Utstein Abbey)

Updated 12/05/2012

Fodor's 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.
