Hiking, skiing and several other outdoor activities have always had an important place in my life. What is the difference between a hiking trip and a pilgrim tour? There are no sharp borders. For me, a pilgrim tour has less focus on the physical challenges. The paths are of low to moderate difficulty and the daily distances are shorter (usually not more than 20-25 km). This gives more time to listen and to get more aware – both of the surrounding nature, of the different voices in my mind and of my feelings. It gives a peace of mind where I get new inspirations or the right answers for decisions I have to make. Below are impressions of shorter tours (usually 2-4 days) that I have undertaken along various pilgrim paths in Norway since 2013, either alone or together with friends.
