POSSIBLE STAGES ALONG ST. OLAV’S PATH:
SELÅNGER - BRÄCKE: approx. 7 days.
The St. Olav Way begins in Selånger, on the Swedish east coast, which has a kind of Mediterranean atmosphere to it. After a hike through deep forests, along lakes and forgotten roads, this stage ends in the village of Bräcke.
BRÄCKE - ÖSTERSUND: approx. 5 days.
The second stage of St. Olavsleden is the shortest of the route: it starts in Bräcke and ends in Östersund, the capital of the province of Jämtland. It is a pleasant walk, which passes historical sites and picturesque villages.
ÖSTERSUND - ÅRE: approx. 7 days.
From Östersund, the pilgrimage continues over rolling green hills, crossing the islands of Frösön and Rödön in the direction of the Swedish-Norwegian ‘fjälls’ (mountains) and the bustling ski village of Åre.
ÅRE - STIKLESTAD: approx. 5 days.
This stage follows the path through the mountains, across the Swedish-Norwegian border. From there, the route goes downhill. It’s a lovely walk through valley’s in the direction of Stiklestad, where King Olav died in 1030.
STIKLESTAD - TRONDHEIM:
approx. 7 days. The final part of St. Olavsleden follows the Trondheim fjord, where it passes through rural areas and suburbs until the final destination: the impressive Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, where St. Olav lies buried.
STIKLESTAD - TRONDHEIM (coastal route): approx. 5 days.
The coastal route follows the road across Frosta peninsula and Tautra island. The last stage of this route is by boat – which makes the planning a bit harder.
