"The route of Saint Olof" - From "the harbour of Saint Olof" at the modern church Selånger - Sundsvall - and medieval ruins of a church close by the route starts and follows more or less the E14 road towards Trondheim in Norway. Still you only have to walk short distances on the asphalt road of E14. In Järpen the pilgrim route turns away from E14 towards Stiklestad (where Saint Olof was killed) and from there you walk close to the Norwegian west coast down to Trondheim - More information on www.pilgrimmedelpad.se and www.pilgrimsleder.se

JämtNorgevägen - The Route of JämtNorge goes from Bräcke, passing Revsund and Bodsjö down to the south eastern shore of Storsjön (Great Lake), where the very interesting and beautiful medieval church of Hackås also is situated. From there you can either go by boat (must be arranged in advance) or across the bridge a bit up north which will lead you to the also most interesting medieval church of Oviken. Now you will walk through deep forests and you need to have good information and food with you for some days until you reach the village of Storsjö Chapel and Ljungdalen. By the Norwegian border the route connects and leads together with the Route of JämtNorge across the mountains and down to the city of Saint Olof; Trondheim.

"Helgonleden" (Swedish for The Route of the Saints)
The route is signpoled from the area north of
Gävle, but we plan to have it signed from Uppsala (city of Saint Erik) and north east of Stockholm, Finsta (which was the birthplace of Saint Birgitta of Sweden). It continues to the province of Hälsingland and the place where Saint Staffan, apostle of this province, is supposed to have been killed. The route connects to the route "Jämt-Norgevägen" which leads to Trondheim, city of Saint Olav. Read more on www.pilgrimstid.nu - Fotos from Helgonleden. In Swedish www.helgonleden.n.nu.
From Finland and Åland Helgonleden will have new routes connecting along the Swedish coast. An InterReg-project will work from 2016 to 2019 - St Olav Waterways. www.nidarosnagunovgorod.n.nu
