E1 in Norway, Finland und Sweden

The E1 starts its 8,000-kilometre journey south from the North Cape in Norway. In the northern part of the Scandinavian peninsula, it switches back and forth between Norway and Sweden. A short section also leads through Finland.

The northernmost section from the North Cape through Finnmark to Kautokeino was completed on 4 June 2013. From there, the E1 largely follows the long-distance hiking trails Nordkalottleden and Grensesømmen to Grövelsjön in Sweden. There the E1 ends near the border and continues on various regional hiking trails through Sweden to Varberg. However, the ferry to Denmark does not longer leave in Varberg. It is advisable to extend the route via Hallandsleden to Halmstad.

When dividing the stages between the North Cape and Grövelsjön we follow the information brochure of the Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT). Our GPS tracks and overview maps are based on the route of the E1, as shown in the OpenStreetMap. All information, including accommodation, is subject to change.
