– Most pilgrims don’t embark on this kind of trip often and our mission is to help everybody focus on their own personal pilgrimage while we take care of everything else along the way, says Sofie Julgård Löfgren, Founder of outdoor experience company Aktivut.

or others looking for a customised experience or additional activities, Aktivut Travels offers tailor-made itineraries that can include yoga, skiing, local culinary experiences and more.
– We are locals, we live in the area and all our guides and staff hike, bike, run, kayak or ski along different parts of the St Olavsleden as part of daily life. We know the route intimately and love showing it to people from all over the world, continues Sofie.
