Trondernes church in Harstad / Norway is considdered to be the northernmost medieval church on earth and you will find it a bit outside of town on the bank of the Fjord. Take a closer look at the great architecture and at the wooden belfry closeby (in my last picture).
From outside it does not look very special, BUT make sure to go INside of the church as well - hopefully this church will be open when you are in Harstad !
This church is normally closed during the day, BUT every day, when the tourbus by Hurtigruten arrives there, somebody will open the gates and show the tourists around. Photography , also with flash was no problem.
Hurtigruten makes only a very short stop in Harstad, so your only chance to see this is their bus-excursion that joins the ship again in another port.
Directions: Harstad is in the Lofoten Islands / Norway.
