The starting point of St. Olav’s Way in Sweden, the village of Selånger is best known for its 12th-century church, now mostly in ruins. At the time King Olav landed here, this was the region’s main harbour. These days it’s rather more sleepy, some 10km from the nearest train station and the closest amenities in the small city of Sundsvall. There’s little here to explore beyond the church and pilgrims’ centre, but the surrounding countryside is beautiful. From Selånger St. Olav’s Way begins along peaceful country lanes and past farmland towards the picturesque shores of beautiful Lake Stöde.
