In the pilgrim reception, the Olavs Letter is handed out, the pilgrim passport is finalised, the completed pilgrimage is registered in the statistics and the "Pilgrimage Town's of Trondheim's gold coin" is given.

All pilgrims must visit the pilgrim reception on arrival at the pilgrimage destination: Nidaros Cathedral. For groups of more than 6 people, it is desirable that they fill in the group registration form that is attached here, and send it by email to trondheim@pilegrimssenter.no in advance of arrival. This way, the volunteers in the pilgrim reception can prepare any Olavs Letters and statistical work so that the visit to the reception will be easier for both the group and the hosts.
