Beautiful St. Olavsleden is Scandinavia’s answer to El Camino, through deep forests to open countryside and lakes. The Pilgrim path stretches 560 kilometer through Sweden and Norway from the Baltic Sea to the Atlantic. The path starts in Selånger, where King Olav Haraldsson stepped ashore in July 1030 after several years in exile. He marched his army to Norway, determined to convert the country to Christianity and win back the throne. The journey ended in Stiklestad, where Olav fell in battle on 29 July 1030.
