The stave church at Savjord
With timber from his own forest and a postcard as a working drawing, the carpenter and pensioner Magnus Stensland built the impressive Stavkirka on Savjord, which takes you 1,000 years back in time.
Magnus had always had a passionate interest in stave churches. He visited Gol and a postcard from there was all he needed.
Magnus has done everything in his own. He obtained the material from his own forest, and he made the tools for turning the large logs himself.
On the roof, there are more than 10,000 roof chips that have been split and tarred. The only help he has received is a crane truck that lifted the top-tower in to place.
The Beiar river is every angler’s true paradise. Here you will find many good and fine selections for both fly fishing and lure fishing.
You can fish for both salmon and sea trout in 22 different zones over a stretch of approximately 30 km.
