Fantoft stave church (Fantoft stavkirke) is a reconstructed stave church. It was originally built in Fortun, a village near inner (the eastern end of) Sognefjord around the year 1150. In the 19th century this church was threatened by demolition as were hundreds of other stave churches in Norway. The church was bought by consul F. Gade and saved by moving it in pieces to Fantoft near (now in) Bergen in 1883.
On the 6 June 1992 the church was totally destroyed by arson. The fire was initiated by Varg Vikernes.
