Hardanger – Utne

Utne i Ullensvang kommune er et vakkert lite fergested som ligger ytterst mot nord på Folgefonnhalvøya, og her reiser tusenvis av turister hvert år med fergen over til Kvanndal.
Da bildet ble tatt ble det foretatt oppussingsarbeidet på Utne kirke, men den ligger altså delvis skjult bak det store treet til venstre i bildet. Kirken ble forøvrig bygget i 1895 og er bygget som en langkirke i tre og har plass til 360 mennesker. Her ute på Utne bor det ca 160 mennesker fast!

Utne, located in the municipality of Ullensvang, is a beautiful little ferry port and lies on the northernmost tip of the Folgefonna peninsula. From here thousands of tourists every year take the ferry across to Kvanndal.
When this picture was taken, the Utne church was undergoing repairs, but you may see it partly hidden behind the trees to the left in this picture. This church, by the way, was built as a long church in 1895 and seats 360 people. Utne has a population of 160 people!

    Haha, the church seats more than Utne’s inhabitants. They are optimistic. Probably lots of tourists come there. Looks a sweet village!
