The northernmost pilgrimage route: St. Olav's Ways
Those who seek silence rather than masses of people will like the Nordic variant of the Way of St. James. The St. Olav's Ways run 5,000 kilometers (3,106 miles) through Norway, Sweden and Denmark. According to legend, St. Olav, the son of a Viking, helped Scandinavians become Christians. A popular route leads from Oslo to the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, where the grave of the saint is found.
