Stråsjöleden pilgrim trail, one of the Saint Olav roads, from sea to sea, across the wild Scandinavian peninsula! The hike starts at the Swedish coast and then continues through villages and deep forests, following the beautiful lakes and flowing rivers and up to the high mountains - the Swedish "fjäll" - where the trail connects to the longer trail; Helgonleden - The Trail of Saints - from Uppsala towards Trondheim.

The pilgrim trail Stråsjöleden is most of the time very easy to walk, since it runs on old trails or minor roads. Here you will experience both the scenery of the coast along northern Sweden, Jungfrukusten - The Virgin Coast - and the large, red-painted traditional farmhouses of Hälsingland, the deep forests with its fragrance of pine and spruce and the lakes that mirror the colours from the blue mountains. You will meet the province of Hälsingland; a diverse and beautiful province. Also, you will come across a part of the province of Medelpad, by the streaming water in Haverö - Haverö Strömmar - and the lake system surrounding it. In the province of Jämtland, you will reach the high mountains – the Swedish "fjäll" – before you eventually continue on Helgonleden – the Saints Trail – following the ancient paths of the Kårböle Trail. You are hereby invited to a memorable walk along Stråsjöleden!

This pilgrim trail, Stråsjöleden, is a part of the European Cultural Trails, "Saint Olav Roads", certified for the mark of Saint Olav by the Swedish National Association Pilgrim i Sverige.
