About Pilgrimsleden Sløvika - Høgkorset
The ‘Pilgrimsleden’ pilgrim path to Trondheim is a network of historic roads through beautiful nature. The path goes from Oslo through Nordmarka to Bønsnes and further to Jevnaker and Hadeland. Pilegrimsleden is marked all the way to Trondheim. The path end is at St. Olav's tomb church, Nidaros Cathedral, which was the northernmost pilgrim destination in Europe throughout the Middle Ages.
1. Jevnaker - Granavollen about 20 km. Pilgrimsleden goes through Sløvika up towards Gamme and further to Granavollen where you will find the pilgrim center, Søsterkirkene, Granavolden Inn and more. This is an easy hike with nice views of Randsfjorden and a beautiful, lush culture landscape.
2. Granavollen - Høgkorset about 20 km. Pilegrimsleden follows Bergenske Hovedveg/Kongsvegen, which is the old main road from Oslo to Bergen.
