The trail of insights & prospects

FULL (kopia)

Warm welcome!

The Göta River pilgrimage will take you just as you please. Here is the idea to gather information that will make it easier for you. You can hike with others or plan your own excursion.

Together we bring life to the old ways and your journey can begin here. Look at the different stages of the route which divide the sections Gothenburg-Lödöse, Lödöse-Hålanda (towards Skara) and Lödöse-Vänersborg. Each of the stages has its own personality. Find a favorite or go all.

Officially, we launch the web in March 2020. We are gradually updating with more information. Out in the field we notice the trail stage by stage. In 2021 we want to re-open the pilgrimage Göta River with you. We do this in connection with the celebration of Gothenburg 400 years and Lödöse 1000 years. Warm welcome!
