Introducing the assistance coupon

In 2022 we introduced the assistance coupon. We continue with this service in 2024 as well.

Nordic Pilgrim offers free advice to anyone. But if you arrange your own trip and still need some extra security, you can order a help coupon. We can assist you with last minute bookings, help in case of emergencies, make reservations or help with translations. See the examples below. Order a coupon to formalize your pilgrim helpline. Contact us for more info.

There will be one tour along the Gudbrandsdalsleden in Norway – from Dovre to Trondheim. A second tour starts in Vuku, along St. Olavsleden, and takes the Outer Route towards Trondheim – ending with a boat ride to the city. The third tour is reflection hike along St. Olavsleden for women.
