The Path Less Travelled

A mix of useful information and updates on what’s happening on S.t Olavsleden. This blog is the companion piece of our podcast “Good Morning Pilgrim!” They are both part of a project in which we want to make S:t Olavsleden better known and accessible to all!

For many hikers, S:t Olavsleden is a transformative experience that provides a sense of renewal, clarity, and inner peace. The quiet beauty of the Nordic landscapes, combined with the trail’s spiritual significance, creates a unique atmosphere that is hard to find anywhere else in the world. It’s important to prepare oneself both mentally and physically for the often life changing experience of hiking S:t Olavsleden. This is the perfect slow travel adventure.  

We hope you find our blog “The Path Less Travelled” useful. Below are some useful blog entries – there are many more here in the archive. Don’t forget that once you begin your hike, we are only a message away. You can reach out in the forums of our community and every morning during the season we send live on PodBean!

I almost forgot! We also have an events calender just for S:t Olavsleden. Check it out!

Godspeed, Happy Trails & Buen camino!
