European route E6 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (240 words)
E6 is the designation for the main north-south road in Norway, and the west coast of Sweden, running from the southern tip of Sweden (Trelleborg), into Norway and through almost all of the country north to Finnmark.
The route ends close to the Norwegian border with Russia.

In a normal year, 70,000 pilgrims receive an award for completing the route (there is a system of stamping a card at the refuges); in a holy year (and 2004 is one) that number doubles.
