What don't you need to pack for a month long bike tour through Sweden and Norway? When we started out on our trip, we packed a bunch of stuff that we thought we would use. But in Sundsvall, before we started with the St Olavsleden leg, we decided to send these non-essentials ahead to Trondheim to lessen our load by 5.2kg between us! The postal service never notified us that our package arrived in Trondheim, so we left Trondheim again without it as we realised that we never missed any of the things and were very happy to be pedalling lighter.

Here is a list of our excess baggage:

Skönt att i septembersolen kunna arbeta med ett manus till Barnens pilgrimsled – ett delprojekt inom Pilgrim Västernorrland och Pilgrim utan gränser och där platser som Selånger, Borgsjö, Åre, Stiklestad och Nidaros förstås spelar en viktig roll. #heritage #history #pilgrimage #stolaf #stolavsleden #visitsundsvall #visitsweden #visitnorway

Day 22 St. Olav’s, August 6th, 21K, Medstugan > Liaberga 
Welcome to Norway! 🇳🇴 Our friend Hans tells us about a really great hunting village a few kilometers away that occasionally has vacancies for pilgrims. He tells us it’s quite the experience and maybe we’ll get lucky and get a spot for the night. Well... we don’t get lucky. And I’m salty about it, mostly because I was hoping for a lavish meal that would fill us up and give us an extra day on our provisions. So after taking a generous break at this hunting village, we continue on towards the Norwegian border. The trail is much more pleasant once we are off the asphalt and away from the busy highway. We see on the map that there are 2 pilgrim shelters along the way today and we want to try and sleep at one of them. We stop at the first one that happens to be located near a bog. And in this bog are ripe cloudberries 🥰 So we pick a few but decide to keep walking to the second shelter, nearly 7 miles away. We walk on.
And just like that, with no other living thing in sight, we walked across the border into Norway. There was this very unceremonious pile of rocks marking the border, which was more than we saw at the France/Spain border. It’s a very surreal feeling. 
Almost as soon as we crossed the border, the scenery changed—more rocky, fewer trees, more bogs. A short 4 kilometers after crossing the border we see the second pilgrim shelter. It looks newly constructed and has a floor. There are also several picnic tables and an outhouse. It is such a perfect, homey little spot and we are so happy to call it ours for the night. It makes me thankful that there were no vacancies in the hunting village 👣❤️ #stolavsleden #pilgrims #swedishborder #norweiganborder #pilgrimshelter #kvilbekken #theswanderers
