It would be
nice if guests of Träporten would spend there their whole holiday there. But
frankly, it would be a bit of a pity. Sweden is a large country and there are so
much beautiful and interesting to see that it is advisable that you visit a
couple of different places during your vacation.

the start (or the finish) of a route that exists since the beginning of
civilization. At the time of the Vikings it was an important trade route on
which goods such as iron and skins were transported to the south. The hectic and
busy road of those days, is now a 350 km long stretch of tranquillity. It runs
through forests, along crystal clear lakes and via lovely towns. At the other
end of Tidernas Väg lies the university town Uppsala. The city of Linnaeus, the
famous biologist who designed the classification system for nature that we still
use to day. A visit to the botanical garden is an attraction not to be missed.
Even if you

from Träporten starts an area know as the High Coast. Due to its special geology

come Nord over Tidernas Väg and, after your stay in Borgsjö, go via Östersund
and the ski area Åre to Trondheim and go south along the Fjords.
The saint Olav route is a pilgrimage from Selånger/Sundsvall in Sweden to Trondheim in Norway, from coast to coast. Trondheim is one of the four major Christian pilgrimagelocations together with Rome, Jerusalem and Santiago de Compostela. Because Trondheim is a holy place, the route is called a pilgrimage and the people making the journey are called pilgrims. The saint Olav route is 560 km (about 350 miles) long. It is possible to walk, but it's also possible for the most parts to take the journey on bicycle or horse.
