Hi!

So I had planned to start walking from Oslo at the end of July, but with a certain pandemic going on, I am now unsure if I will be able to get accommodation and supplies along the way. Can anyone give some advice about what I will find, or even if I should do this?
This would only be my second long distance walk, and I will be going solo (unless anyone else is leaving at a similar time?).

Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

It seems to me that most places are open and people are walking. Pilgrims are adviced to call and book. Shops are open as normal. Norway is from 15.07 open for citizens of a lot of European countries without beiing carantined. There is a new evaluation every 14 days. If you are on facebook look at Pilegrimsleden - St. Olav Ways or Pilegrimsleden.

In Norway today, there are 5 in hospital for Covid. None in ICU. Probably the safest country of all. Shops, hotels, restaurants/cafes, mostly everything, are open. Welcome! For details: https://pilegrimsleden.no/en/

Info given is good news......but....

You do not state your nationality so.....

Just a reminder...you have to bee observant of the Covid status on country of departure

Sooo....if you are swedish there is quarantine....if you leave from Spain it’s likely to get mandatory quarantine within days of me writing..... USofA=quarantine Russia=quarantine ...

In summary....as of today....most of europe is «green» but status can change very fast to «red»

Welcome when you are ready!

«God Vandring»
«Buen Camino»



((Call Oslo Pilgrimcenter on 0047480 52 949 if hesitant))

I'm so jealous. I was suppose to go from june to august and walk this but Norway's borders are one of the strictest. Not letting Canadians in anyways. I planned for that one for 7 months! If you end up walking it... I hope you post all about it!!

Alas I am no help at answering you question though :p. Sorry

Well.....there is ongoing changes by the week now.....Canada is doing well so I guess there is some real hope going forward....🙏🏼

Guess direct flights to green Europe and then onwards is feasible??

Best of luck and welcome when you make it!!9BCBEFD4-C1E3-4AAF-A3C8-F59ACF303A77.jpeg
