The Peer Gynt festival

In the Gudbrandsdalen valley, one hour north of Lillehammer, Henrik Ibsen’s drama "Peer Gynt" is celebrated in one of Norway’s largest cultural festivals. Norwegian drama, music and nature comes together in the middle of Peer Gynt’s kingdom.

The festival is a celebration of Ibsen’s "Peer Gynt" and the historical person Per Gynt, who lived in the Gudbrandsdalen valley in the 17th century. The tales about Per have been told through generations, and these, together with the nature and culture in the valley, is what inspired Henrik Ibsen to write the dramatic poem.

The festival will give its guests a good insight into the Norwegian spirit; through nature, culture and traditions.

The festival takes place from 31th July-9th August 2020.

Henrik Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" at Gålå

The theatre production of Peer Gynt at Gålå has gathered some of the best professional actors and musicians in Norway since 1989. Together with almost 80 willing volunteers, this stage play has become one of the most popular theatre productions in Norway.

Although the play is performed in Norwegian, the production is well suited for an international audience, with English and German introductions, summary booklets and audio guides.

 It was amazing, I have never been in a performance like that before in my life!

 Having an English audio summary of each scene was extremely helpful and a great way of including non-Norwegian speakers.

The mountain concert "by Rondane"

Powerful music meets grand nature when the Peer Gynt festival presents famous artists at the outdoor stage overlooking Rondane National park.

The outdoor concert venue on the Kvamsfjellet mountain was built for the first mountain concert in the festival in 1996. There are benches for 100 people, but most guests prefer to bring their own folding chair, a sit-mat or a blanket, and sit in the heater. In the heater you will get the best view to the home of the Mountain King, the steep mountains of Rondane National park.

With the Rondane mountains as the scenery, the venue offers a unique framework for culture in nature.


 It was an absolutely stunning experience with brilliant actors, outstanding musicians and a wonderful designed and used stage
