The pilgrimage site Stiklestad is both an important stopover on the St.Olavsleden and a good starting point for hiking the 134 km towards Nidaros Cathedral and Trondheim. The saint king Olav Haraldsson fell here in the battle of 29 July 1030 and was sanctified the following year. As a consequence of this incident, there was a significant pilgrim traffic in the Middle Ages, primarily to his burial place in Nidaros / Trondheim, but also to his place of death at Stiklestad.
Stiklestad Cultural Centre has a medieval farm called Stiklastadir and pilgrims have a unique opportunity to stay in a historic setting in the Longhouse or the Guest loft.
