THE ROMBO PATH AND ST. OLAV'S PATH
Two historical pilgrim paths joins together north of Trondheim. The Rambo Path and the St. Olav's Path.
The Rambo Path comes from Sweden through Skarddøra, Tydal and Selbu. This path is not only the oldest pilgrim path in Norway; it is also an important connection between two important Nordic saints: Saint Olav and Saint Birgitta of Sweden. In 1030 Saint Olav took the fatal journey from Selånger in Sweden to Stiklestad in Norway.
The St. Olav's Path goes from Selånger through Stiklestad to Trondheim.
The Pilgrims crossed the border on the Rombo Path here in Skardøla mountains in Tydal, near the Stugusjø Lake.
