In the Middle Ages, Trondheim was one of the main pilgrim goals in Europe together with Rome, Jerusalem and Santiago de Compostella. In 2010, the St. Olav pilgrim route was incorporated as one of the Official European Cultural Routes by the European Institute of Cultural Routes.
Choose a long walk along the original routes with overnight stays at guesthouses, or opt for a more a more luxurious and less strenuous option – it's up to you!
After a peaceful night at Stiklestad Hotel, located north of Trondheim, the hike starts at Stiklestad National Cultural Centre. This is where the Viking king Olav Haraldsson, who played a crucial part in Norway’s conversion to Christianity, was killed in battle in 1030. The path continues through green, peaceful woodlands with lovely views of the fjord. Along the way you can visit local farms and attractions, and enjoy locally produced food and drink.
Spend the night in a hotel before returning to Trondheim city centre the next day, where you will visit the Nidaros Cathedral and meet the pilgrim priest who will give you a certificate.
