Geirangerfjorden Norddal

In the trail of St Olav.

Sailing Pilgrim  wants to focus on a little known part of Norwegian history. In 2015 a Pilgrims road from Valldal to Nidaros, via Dombås, was opened. This got its approval because of the fact that St Olav in January 1029 travelled through Valldal. He left many traces which can be seen even today.

Sailing Pilgrim will take pilgrims and others out on the fjord in a Viking ship and tell the story about St Olav`s dramatic escape on the fjord and up the valley, before he moved via Dovre over to Sweden. We can offer a unique voyage on the fjord with spectacular nature. At the same time it is a journey 1000 years back in time. People will see the Sylte serpent, the money cave, the pulpit, the snuff horn and the oar-blade, which all have stories about Olav linked to them.

On shore they will see Olav`s monument, Olav`s road, Olav`s spring and Olav`s flagstone.  Many will say that aside from Stiklestad, Valldal is the place that owns the most traditions linked to St Olav.
