Romerike Pilgrim Paths - Olav’s roads to Trondheim
The path across Romerike is marked between Skedsmo, Sørum, Ullensaker and Eidsvoll.
There is a variety of accommodation for wanderers and pilgrims, from the simplest hostel at a storehouse to well-equipped hotel rooms.
The path winds through a diverse landscape, through forests, across creeks and along lakes. But first and foremost, it traverses Romerike’s scenic cultural landscape, with its huge sky, rolling fields and well-tended farms. There are three medieval churches along the path, several of which are dedicated to St. Olav. Other traces of the medieval saint include the Olavsgangen path in Sørum, and the Olav Statue at Skedsmo church.
The path passes by several burial sites from the Iron Age as well as the monumental Raknehaugen mound from the migration period. This burial mound is one of the largest in the Nordic countries, and is constructed out of earth and 75,000 logs! Beyond the mounds, the path continues through an old sunken road that has probably been in use for at least 1500 years.
At Risebru we encounter both newer and older historical roads which include a stone bridge, the old Trondheimsveg road and sunken roads. The path continues past the Eidsvoll building and on towards Minnesund and Hedmark.
