Walk the pilgrim routes of Saint Olav
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
using in Sweden the route "Helgonleden" (Route of the Saints)
starting in the province of Uppland, with Uppsala-Gävle-Järvsö-Kårböle-Ljungdalen>Trondheim
A project - St Olav Waterway, InterReg Central Baltic - is now working to make the vision come true. www.st-olav.com
Have breakfast at home and dinner with us!
Approximately 2-3 hours by train from Stockholm Arlanda Airport
you can start walking with us from the Swedish coast
through farming lands, deep forests, over the high mountains,
down to the Norwegian coast and Trondheim, or Nidaros, city of Saint Olav!
