Gradering på turforslag

Alle turforslagene på pilegrimsleden.no er gradert etter en nasjonal standard for merking av vanskelighetsgrad, slik at du enklere kan finne en tur som passer for deg.

Grønn = Enkel

Dette er stort sett korte og enkle turer som passer for alle, uten krav til spesielle ferdigheter eller utstyr. I de tilfeller hvor det er tilrettelagt for rullestolbrukere eller barnevogn, merkes dette spesielt.

Blå = Middels

Dette er turer som passer for deg som har grunnleggende turferdigheter og er i normal fysisk form.

Rød = Krevende

Turer merket med rødt passer for erfarne turgåere, med god utholdenhet. Turene krever ofte gode tursko og annet turutstyr, samt kunnskap om kart og kompass.

Svart = Ekstra krevende

Dette er turer passer for erfarne fjellfolk, med god fysikk, styrke og utholdenhet. Godt turutstyr og gode kunnskaper om kart og kompass er nødvendig på slike turer.

Hvor krevende en tur er bestemmes blant annet av antall høydemeter (stigning) og lengde på turen. Selv om turen går i flatt terreng, kan den merkes med rødt dersom den er veldig lang. Og motsatt, selv om turen er kort, kan den merkes med svart dersom den går i bratt og krevende terreng.

Situated along Tunsbergleden

Walk from the river of the Numedalslågen in Larvik, past the Viking town of Kaupang on a thousand year old road through Tjølling's rich agricultural landscape, towards the Marum forest with the mystical cultural heritage site Istrehågan. Be sure to fill the water bottle and packed lunch in Tjølling. From the Marum forest, you walk into the historic Sandefjord town centre along roads that have been in use since the Middle Ages.

In Sandefjord there are many accommodations. Both Hotel Kong Carl and Clairon Collection Atlantic have special prices for pilgrims.

The pilgrim path is marked from the Larvik ferry port connecting to Hirtshals, Denmark. If you do not come from Denmark you can take a bus or train to the center of Larvik and follow Dronningens gate 303 over Tjøllingveien 303 until you see the signposting of the pilgrim pass at the bridge by the river Nummedalslågen.

The Tunsbergleden starts in Larvik, is 190 kilometers long, and ends at Haslum church in Bærum. There it connects to Gudbrandsdalsleden, which goes on to Oslo and Trondheim.
