HORSE BACK RIDING

St. Olavsleden on horseback from Sweden to Norway

Along the hiking trail St. Olavsleden there are a lot of fantastic riding paths. It is possible to ride the entire distance, and lodging and food are available for both rider and horse along the way.

If you want a trail that is easy to ride, with varying landscapes and historical perspectives, then St. Olavsleden is perfect! Just as with hiking or cycling the rider gets an Olav letter as a certificate of the achievement for the last 200 kilometers before Trondheim. Accomodations are presented in the digital map below.

Stay at wonderful Sörbygården with your horse.

One of the entrepreneurs that offer both food, lodging and paddocks is Sörbygården in Grytan, a little more than 10 km south of Östersund. “With St. Olavsleden I see great opportunities to develop my concept for both rider and horse. I run a horse farm with bed & breakfast and conference capacity. In the future I want to be able to offer a pilgrim package for both riders, cyclists and hikers. I also believe that I can develop my conference package with experiences along the trail, says Ann-Sofi Känngård, Sörbygården.”

Farrier along the trail

It is important that both horse and rider is properly equipped. If a shoe comes loose from a hoof, it is good to know where you can find new shoes and someone with the right tools to fix them. You will find farriers along the St. Olavsleden under Stages.
