Discover St. Olavsleden trail this summer

The Pilgrim path St. Olavsleden stretches about 580 kilometers through Sweden and Norway from the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic. The path starts in Selånger, where King Olav Haraldsson stepped ashore in July 1030 after several years in exile. He marched his army to Norway, determined to convert the country to Christianity and win back the throne. The journey ended in Stiklestad, where Olav fell in battle on 29 July. Beautiful St. Olavsleden is Scandinavia’s answer to El Camino, through deep forests to open countryside and lakes.

IMPORTANT INFO

HOLMEN BRIDGE IN VUKU CLOSED
Due to roadwork, Holmen bridge in Vuku is closed the whole summer. It opens in November 2018. Pilgrims have to walk the road via Steine between Sul and Vuku. We will put up signs as soon as possible at Garnes to prevent pilgrims from a long detour, but the signs are not there yet.
At Garnes, follow road 72 – Jamtlandsvegen – over the bridge, and then follow the road signs towards Stiklestad. Blue dots on the attached map shows the new route.

WATER SITUATION ALONG THE PATH
We have had an incredibly snowy winter this year in the north of Sweden, which is absolutely amazing.
But this, however, means that we in some areas are large water flows.

Please contact the Tourist centers along the path for more info:
