Description

After his death at the battle at Stiklestad (1030), Olav Haraldsson was made patron saint of Norway. Soon after his death one experienced signs and miracles linked to Olav’s remains. He became a figure of reverence, and pilgrims from all over Europe travelled to Nidaros (Trondheim), the main destination in Scandinavia for pilgrims.

Our suggested routes take you through areas offering silence, peace and tranquillity, inviting you to take an outer and inner journey in a framework of a variety of majestic experiences in nature, culture and history.

On the website www.pilgrim.info you will find a pilgrimage planner with maps and information on the routes and the destination, with details on organised pilgrimages, accommodation, cultural heritage sites, and services offered along the routes.
