Pilgrim's Trail through Lillehammer, Fåberg, Øyer and Tretten

Tretten village

For many centuries pilgrims from all over Europe took the long journey to Nidaros Cathedral (in Trondheim) to seek out the relics of Saint Olav. On their way to the cathedral, they first followed one of two trails passing on either side of Lake Mjøsa to Lillehammer. After passing trough Lillehammer they would follow one trail starting at Øyer that would take them through the Gudbrandsdalen valley and on to Trondheim.

In our modern-day "pilgrim's trail" we have attempted to race the ancient pilgrim trail as accurratly as possible. All along the trail, special signs have been set up showing a logo containing a combination of the Saint Olav Cross and the international symbol for tourist attraction. A step into history and magnificent nature!

You're welcome to take a walk!
