Peer Gynt Trail Espedalen - Fefor - Gålå - Kvitfjell - Skeikampen 7 days / 80 km +

The Peer Gynt Trail, from Espedalen to Lillehammer

North-west of the Olympic city of Lillehammer is the Peer Gynt Trail, named after a local Norwegian hero, characterized into fiction by author Henrik Ibsen. The Peer Gynt trail, 7 days and 80 km, is a groomed ski trail between Espedalen and Skeikampen, in what is known as 'Peer Gynt Country'.
Make your way through a landscape of distant horizons, birch tree woodland, Norwegian farmsteads, and frozen lakes.

The trail is an excellent cross-country alternative for families, who are interested in a bit more challenging, yet still enjoyable, skiing experience. The trail offers groomed and well-marked cross-country tracks.
In clear weather, you will be able to enjoy a continuous view of the breath-taking peaks of the national parks Jotunheimen, Rondane and Dovrefjell along the trip, providing a beautiful and dramatic backdrop to this “friendly” mountain region.  If this is your first cross country ski trip in Norway - be prepared to be blown away.

You stay in good hotels during the tour. Destinations along the trail include Espedalen, Fefor, Gålå, Kvitfjell and Skeikampen - all well-known ski resorts with long traditions in winter tourism and known for some of the best cross-country skiing terrain in Norway.  Kvitfjell hosted the downhill competition during the 1994 Olympic Winter Games.

Tracks and skis:
The trail runs about 700 - 1500 meters above sea level. The daily stages are relatively short, and provide opportunities for interesting detours. The entire Peer Gynt trail is frequently groomed and regular cross-country skis can be used.

With luggage transfer - Without guide:
While you are out skiing, your luggage is transported to the next accommodation. You only have to bring a small backpack with extra clothes and food. Although the trail is marked, you should be familiar with using maps in addition to the tour description.

Dates and prices for 2019 will be published as soon as possible. Questions? Contact us here!
