South of Rjukan, it’s definitely worth a detour to the ***Heddal Stave Church. It’s huge and lovely. Also very popular with tourists from Oslo.

Adjoining the Church grounds is the ***Heddal Open Air Museum, a small collection of traditional homes. It’s a quick and worthwhile stop, especially the painted rooms in the showcase house. Be sure the follow the complete path (not well marked) for excellent views of the church from the hilltop.
