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.

Welcome to join the Facebook group

“Hiking along the St.Olavsleden trail” is an open group where your posts can be seen by all Facebook users. This group is for anyone interested in St. Olavsleden, for those who would like to share their experiences and pictures, or for hikers that would like to plan a trip, ask questions and get advise from others etc. In this group we can inspire and support each other. Post in whatever language works best for you.

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.

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.
