Hike the Peer Gynts Trail | Discover Norway
Are you looking for easy hikes in the Norwegian mountains? Please have a look at the Peer Gynt's kingdom.
The legend of Ibsen's Peer Gynt originated in Gudbrandsdalen and there is much evidence that the person the legend is based on was born at Vinstra, in the middle of Gudbrandsdalen. In the mountainous areas between Lillehammer and Vinstra, lies his kingdom. A magnificent of scenic landscapes and ancient cultural landscapes. Here Peer Gynt found tranquillity and inspiration. Peer Gynt may well have been a boaster and a dreamer, but a visit to Peer Gynt's Kingdom will convince you that Peer had good reason to boast of his kingdom. People still find both peace and joy in traveling in these mountain areas both summer and winter. The area offers easy trails in a varied terrain.
