St. Olavsleden – Follow St. Olav through historical forests and mountains

St. Olavsleden is the northernmost pilgrim trail in the world. The trail is approximately 580 kilometres long and extends from the Baltic Sea in the east to the Atlantic Ocean in the west, from Selånger in Sweden to Trondheim in Norway. The trail goes through large forests, over mountains, along lakes and past historic sites. St. Olavsleden is the Scandinavian equivalent to the El Camino de Santiago de Compostela, the famous pilgrim route to Spain.

When nature calls 

Here are some tips on how to respond when nature calls. Human waste should not go into the trash bag. If the crisis is close when you’re far from a toilet: Dig a small hole. Relieve yourself. Cover the hole with earth. Please bury your toilet paper as well or take it with you.

That way, we can all enjoy our travels along the trail.
