Sylan - Nidaros 2019
How to meet other pilgrims in Norway without searching high and low. In this guided walk you will meet other interesting people and together you will focus on what is important in life.
Every day we walk part of the route in silence. This way we will be able to enjoy the amazing nature for Trondelag County in Norway. While walking, we become more and more aware of the present moment. Your guide will be Hilde Kirkvold, who has been leading this pilgrimage tour for the past 6 years. Join us for a 9 days walk along the old pilgrimpath, from higlands to spruce forest, from the Swedish border to the pilgrim Capital of Trondheim. We will ensure that your luggage is transported between the accommodations so you do not wear yourself out by carrying your luggage yourself.
Since this walk takes several days it is posible to start from ⌘Sylsjøen (160 km) or from *Gressli (100 km); see plan below. You may also sign up for Shorter distances, but those who intend to start at Sylsjøen or Gressli and do the Whole trail will be given priority. In July we have deliberatley chosen to arrive in Trondheim one day before the Feast of Saint Olav, and we recommend that you spend a day of rest here. Deadline for registration is 15th of June/15th of July. We have a limit of maximum 12 and minimum 7 participants. The total cost for the pilgrimage is NOK 9.900 or 1.200 pr day. This includes guiding, overnight stays, meals and transport of luggage. Any cancellation must be made before 1 of July/1 of August.
