The Pilgrim trail

The Pilgrim trail

The pilgrimages went on in Sweden for about 500 years, from 1050 AD to 1550. They were stopped by King Gustav Vasa in 1527, but in spite of that they continued for a few more decades. The pilgrims came by boat från Västergötland to Sunnanå, from where they continued north, through Edelskog for the final destination Nidaros (Trondheim, Norway).

To get back to where you started and to Mellerud:
In Edelskog the pilgrim trail joins another walking trail, Storspåret, between Edsleskog and Åmål. This trail is about 20 kilometres (12.5 miles). From Åmål you can take bus or train back to Mellerud. From Edelskog there are also buses for Dals-Ed, Bengtsfors and Mellerud.

To get access to a trail map:

- download the map and print (four A4 sheets).

- download the trail to your GPS or smart phone.

- ask for the map at any tourist information point in Dalsland.

We advise you to bring a map, and a mobile phone while walking - since the trail takes you far from roads.
