St Olav Waterway

Among sparkling cold spring waters or fiery autumnal leaves, the archipelago is a wonderful place to explore on foot. You can embrace the quiet and explore landscapes shaped by wind and sea, farmers and fishermen. In the evening after a long hike, cosy hotels and BBs with tasty home cooked meals or casual fine dining restaurants often feature local seasonal produce. St Olav Waterway is Finland’s first long-distance pilgrim’s trail, a path that follows in the footsteps and boat wakes of medieval pilgrims. You don’t only explore the archipelago’s diverse nature but you are embarking on a historical journey where travellers and locals meet.

Travel slowly and take time to island hop by rowing boat, kayak or ferry. If the weather is bracing indulge yourself with a massage or yoga weekend or simply rent a candle-lit cottage with friends for a well-deserved retreat. The trail launches at Turku Cathedral on 24th of May 2019 when a rotating group will hike 1200km to Trondheim in Norway. The path is open from Easter 2019.
