Stråsjöleden runs from sea to sea – from the coast of Hälsingland to Nidaros, Trondheim, in Norway. It is a Saint Olav road, with the status of a European cultural road.

The starting point of the stage is the old church of Enånger. It is well worth a visit, and you can borrow the key during the day at the parsonage. Don't forget to bring it back!

The hike runs through villages and forest areas, and there are no major level differences. Before arriving to the church of Njutånger, there is an area called Snäckmor, where it is said that the Vikings from Norway kept their ships. Snäcka (shell) is an old word for a kind of Viking boat. Nowadays, there is a marina and a swimming area next to it.

Bring a water bottle and a lunch pack, there will be no food until possibly when you reach Brogården Hostel in Njutånger - important: you will have to ask them to purchase breakfast and provisions, if needed.

The trail is largely marked with poles carrying the mark of St. Olav, and sometimes with hangers with the mark, or stickers with the mark on lampposts, and at times with orange colour painted on trees.

Where the trail follows the old E4, you should be careful, since the road is still busy, though not so heavily nowadays.
