#65: Pilgrim Route

For me, the Norwegian summer is the best time for walking and jogging – it’s not too hot and not too cold. Trondheim is the final destination of the St. Olav Ways, one of the most important pilgrim routes in Northern Europe. Pilgrims and other travellers have used these historic trails since 1032 CE. Experience the history and take the tram up to Lian, then hike the last section of the trail all the way down to Nidaros Cathedral and quench your thirst with the holy water of St. Olav’s Well at Marinen.
