Travel to the only preserved Monastery from the Middle Ages in Norway – get amazed by the serene landscape and feel the harmonic atmosphere surrounding the island of Mosterøy.

Secluded beauty and stunning scenery reward you during this harmonic journey to Mosterøy island. In this calm landscape, lies the Utstein Monastery, one of the country’s finest landmarks dating all the way back to the Middle Ages. Enjoy the sublime ocean-view and feel the atmosphere of peace and tranquility embracing the island of Mosterøy.

Before reaching Utstein, an unique experience awaits you – drive through one of the world’s longest underwater tunnels and get fascinated by this engineering marvel.

At the Monastery, you will be met by a guide, dressed in authentic medieval clothing, who will give you a complete guided tour of the museum. Discover all the different eras the monastery has witnessed and the remains of each of them in the current structure. This peaceful area oozes stories of the monks’ activities and wealth shows in beautiful detailing both out-and indoors. It has served as the royal residence of the very first Viking king of Norway; Harald Fairhair. It was later donated to the monks of Stavanger in the 12th century and has even served as a private mansion long after that.

Bordered by lush greenery, Utstein Monastery is a place where you can enjoy serene landscape and rugged beauty of the countryside – take a time out and experience the unique moments of silence. A visit to Utstein Farm Store, located in a renovated boathouse close to the monastery, and a photo-stop at the Swords in Rock monument in Hafrsfjord is also included in the tour.
