HIKING ALONG THE TRAIL

Beautiful St. Olavsleden is Scandinavia’s answer to El Camino. Plan the walk of a lifetime, be inspired by nature, culture and meetings with fellow walkers. You can find peace and inner tranquillity on the ancient paths. Walk on your own, with guide or with a friend, it is all up to you.

It takes about four weeks to walk the entire trail – from Selånger to Trondheim – depending on your pace and type of hiking. Some pilgrims just walk certain parts of the trail; others walk and take the train, or combine walking and cycling. It is all up to you! Further down on this page you can see a digital, clickable and ‘zoomable’ map, including accommodation. You can also download the map and a list of accomodations along the St.Olavsleden trail.

Ways to travel along the trail

When you think of a pilgrim journey, the most common way to travel is by foot, the calm passage that gives you time to reflect and find yourself. Find out more about other ways to travel along the St. Olavsleden trail, by bike, horse ridning and running. 

Walk S:t Olavsleden with your dog

You’re welcome to bring your dog with you, but special rules apply for entering Sweden and Norway with your four-legged friend. OBS! Extra krav Norge.

You can read more about what is needed for entering Sweden with your dog at Jordbruksverkets webpage.

At Mattilsynets webpage you can read more about what is needed for entering Norway with your dog, visit them here.

Please note that Norway have different rules than Sweden and that you will have to see a veterinarian before crossing the border. Norway also have some forbidden breeds that is not allowed to bring into the country. At the moment that applies to the following breeds:
– Pit bull terrier
– American Staffordshire terrier
– Fila Brasileiro
– Toso Inu
– Dogo Argentino
– Ceskoslovenský vlciak

Taking the train or bus

If you don’t want to walk the entire trail, only certain sections, it’s simple as local trains go along the trail almost all the way to Trondheim. You can simply take the train and get on or off at whichever station suits you along the trail. You can find more information at Norrtåg and you can book at SJ. In some places, it works better with the bus rather than train. Check with the local tourist information office, or see the Getting there and away section here.

Driving

Many parts of the trail go along normal roads, tarmac and gravel roads. This is good to know if you are unable to discover the trail by other means.
