Helgonleden initially runs from the church of Hamrånge in Bergby, through the centre there, with the shops and restaurants, and then continues on small roads up to the area around Viksjö, a place rich with lakes. Don't forget to provide with water and food for a couple of days!

If you hike quickly, you will easily reach the shelter at Småströmmarnas Pilgrimshärbärge. Book your accommodation there well in advance!

The church of Hamrånge is within eyesight on the hill. Since the congregation often organizes walks, you can get some good advice from them about the stages that follow. The stage is easy to walk, with small roads of gravel or grass.

Author’s recommendation

 

The stage is easy to walk - but don't forget the wather bottle and your lunch pack!

Contact Småströmmarnas Pilgrimshärbärge for lodging. You can walk the entire route to Småströmmarna, or stay the night in the shelter in Viksjö!
