While on Washington Island, take time to visit this Scandinavian church. It was hand built and it is beautiful - both inside and outside.

A charming church built in the style of a 12th century church worth the visit. Small, intimate. Wonderful architecture and peaceful setting. Listen to the guide tell the story of the church and how it came to be

We visited the Stavkike and it is very nice architecture! the chapel has no nails in it, all the wood is fitted together.

This church is very unique and there are four dragons at the front and rear of the church. Viking shipbuilding techniques characterize the all-wood construction; tongue and groove joinery and heavy wrought iron fastenings.

A very cool stop, small but hypnotic. There's two ways to get there, a "reflective boardwalk" to the east, but a parking lot right at the steps to the west. Donation recommended but not required.

This church hidden in the beautiful woods is made entirely of pine. Some copper is used in its construction. Not sure if its history. No literature was available at the church.

This iconic little wooden church is a wonder of beauty and imagination! Set deep in the woods of Washington Island, it is a must see during your time there. The construction is very creative and intriging. Don't miss this!

Yes, Wednesday evenings I believe. I bet if you contacted the church affiliated with Stavkirke (it’s right across the street) they’d have a schedule.
