Gradering på turforslag

Alle turforslagene på 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 St. Olavsleden

Enjoy a mini-pilgrimage along the pilgrim path coming in from the east side of Trondheim. Follow the path (actually both St. Olavsleden and Romboleden follows this path) along the beautiful Ladestien. Have a coffee at the Ringve museum, enjoy the charming district of Møllenberg and end your mini-pilgrimage by crossing the Old Town Bridge and visit the great Nidaros Cathedral.

Follow the signs of the St. Olav Ways from Rotvoll. Walk along Ladestien and the Trondheim fjord, passing Leangen Bay and the Leangen farm on the path to the left.

After following this road and Olav Engelbrektsons avenue for a while, follow the pilgrim path to the left towards the botanical garden at Ringve. We recommend you to make a pitstop at Ringve which also is a music history museum and has a charming café.

After crossing the busy Jarleveien at the entrance to Ladeveien, the pilgrim path continues on towards Lademoen church on the street in the eastern part of Trondheim.
