The Pilgrim Center Oslo is one of twelve regional pilgrim centers along the nine pilgrim paths in Norway. The center is responsible for the pilgrim paths in the Oslo region, in addition to providing advice on pilgrimages along the Gudbrandsdalsleden (west and east route), Tunsbergleden and parts of Borgleden.

Blessing of Pilgrims

At the Pilgrim Centre of Oslo you can also, independently of your confessional or religious belonging, receive the pilgrim's blessing. Experience how it is to be sent off on your pilgrimage the same way medieval pilgrims started their pilgrimage, with a blessing. Every pilgrim receiving the blessing also receives a blue or green ribbon to help you remember the blessing you have received. – When at the pilgrim centre, remember to ask if the pilgrim priest is available to give you the blessing!
