The Peer Gynt gallery is a visitor center in the middle of Hellesylt, on the doorstep of the Geirangerfjord and the UNESCOS world heritage site West Norwegian Fjords in Norway.
The center opened in the summer of 2002. The main exhibition shows a total of 11 small and large unique wooden reliefs from the drama Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen. This Is handicraft of the finest class, and many people have wondered how it is possible to carve something so large, lifelike and “alive” using a linden three.
In 2018 the center got a new exhibition related to the world heritage. Here you meet artists, businessmen, and outdoor people inspired by the scenery surrounding Hellesylt.
The visitor center also contains a café offering simple and good snacks. If you want to buy a small memory, you`ll find products related to this area in the little store by the café.
We warmly welcome you to a pleasant and educational visit to our center, the Peer Gynt gallery!
