"Stopping at Ervik Church, built in memory of the Hurtigruten Coastal Express Ship St. Svitun, was a special experience. The ship sank in 1943 having been bombed by six British aircraft. Thanks to the heroic efforts of the locals, who risked their own lives in huge waves to save those who jumped from the ship, 75 people survived. The dead who were found were buried in the graveyard at Ervik Church. For me, the story and the view made this roadside church a very special place to stop before driving on through the open and colourful coastal landscape. There are great walks in Ervik, for example to Hovden. If you would like to go on a guided walk in the area, contact Stadt Naturguiding, which knows the area well and can tell you about its rich history".
