About the trail
Pilgrimsleden runs along Via Regia, the old royal road, which is the oldest known road in history. This thousand-year-old route winds through the cultural landscape of Halland. In Falkenberg, it takes you past the churches in Asige, Årstad, Vessigebro, Askome, Köinige and Svartrå. In total, the trail is 180 km long, but you can take it in daily stages, of course. It connects to Västra Götaland to the north and the Scanian and Småland pilgrim trails by Örkelljunga to the south.
