I recently got invited to hike the St. Olav Waterways with Kathrin and I felt very excited: I’d get to try a longer hike again, and especially one I felt a bit of a connection to! I used to live on the countryside right next to the St. Olav pilgrim path and a few years ago I hiked part of the St Olav trail.

The St Olav Waterways just opened up to pilgrims in May this year and takes you through the Finnish archipelago until you reach Sweden where it joins with the one I hiked that starts outside of Sundsvall and takes you all the way to Norway.
