Selja - Selja Monastery

  •  /  km From You
Overview

The walk over the island Selja ends where Christianity in Norway started.

St. Sunniva's cave and the Selja Abbey are extremely well-preserved reminders keeping the area's rich past alive. Legend has it that St. Sunniva was trapped in this cave during a rock avalanche while seeking refuge from hedonistic King Håkon Jarl, and it has become one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Norway. The best way to experience Selja is to follow the narrow path - either via the top of the island or along the seaside.
