Olavsgård - Arteid vestre ca 17 km
At Olavsgård and Hellerudsletta we are in the area where Olav Haraldsson, who later became Olav the Holy, defeated Raumen in the battle of Nitjar in 1021.
You walk past Skedsmo medieval church, where there is a copy of the original statue of Olav that stood in the church in the Middle Ages. Furthermore, follow the historic road trip Farseggen to Leirsund and into Sørum municipality.
After a couple of kilometers long national road 259, when we have crossed the railway, we keep to the left and follow the field edge up to Frogner church. The beautiful old church is from the Middle Ages and has contained one of Akershus' two famous runic inscriptions. Continue further down to Frogner where there are shops and nice Kafe Mat og Glede. Continue north and follow east into Lindebergveien, then turn right into Revestien and through the forest. At Vilbergfjellet is Olavsgangen, a natural formation that will be a trace of the keel of St. Olav's boat, this could sail both on land and on water. Out of the forest we follow the edge of the land up to Arteid Farm.
