Walk the pilgrim routes of Saint Olav - Information flyer (pdf)
in May 2010 these routes were granted the certification "Council of Europe Cultural Route"
from the Swedish coast of the Baltic Sea to Trondheim in Norway
Our vision is to connect the routes from Russia, Finland, Åland, Sweden, Norway,
all the way; Nidaros-Nagu-Novgorod (more on www.nidarosnagunovgorod.n.nu )
using in Sweden the route "Helgonleden" (Route of the Saints)
starting in the province of Uppland, with Uppsala-Gävle-Järvsö-Kårböle-Ljungdalen>Trondheim (Large Map)
A project - St Olav Waterway, InterReg Central Baltic - is now working to make the vision come true. www.st-olav.com
Pilgrimstid is working 2016-2019 with digital maps for pilgrims - Helgonleden and Stråsjöleden both in Swedish, but if you follow the links to the map you may chose language, informaton is currently translated to English and German. Example
Have breakfast at home and dinner with us!
Approximately 2-3 hours by train from Stockholm Arlanda Airport

down to the Norwegian coast and Trondheim, or Nidaros, city of Saint Olav!
