Walk the pilgrim route ”Saint Olavsleden”

During medieval times, the route ”S:t Olavsleden” was one of the big four pilgrimages, alongside the roads to Jerusalem, Rome and Santiago de Compostela. By walking this route you follow in the footsteps of the Norwegian Viking Olav Haraldsson. After returning from exile in Russia he created unity in the country by converting the population to the Christian faith, and became king of Norway.

map(www.stolavsleden.com)-1On the 29th of July 1030, Olav was killed in the Battle of Stiklestad. His body was secretly transported to Nidaros, the present-day Trondheim. Soon after his death miraculous stories about him began to abound. His body was then reburied and the cathedral was built in his honour.
