About Varhaug Old Churchyard
The old churchyard at Varhaug, “Varhaug gamle kirkegård”, is stunningly located on the Jæren coast. It boasts arguably the most scenic view of any Norwegian cemetery. The location has been a religious site since at least the 13th century and today features a small chapel.
The churchyard is a short detour from Norwegian Scenic Route Jæren.
Follow Road 44 towards Varhaug. Look for the large signs to “Kongevegen” opposite a large barn. There is a small parking lot.
You can take a local train from Stavanger to Varhaug. From there, it’s a 3 kilometer walk to the Old Churchyard.
