At the arena by lake Gålåvatnet you can find everything you need for an evening at the theatre.

Travel to the Peer Gynt festival, follow the signs to the theatre venue ("Peer Gynt teater") and park your car at the assigned spot. You can also park caravans and buses at this area. Make sure to bring cash to pay for parking (NOK 50). Follow the signs to walk to the festival arena (approximately 150 metres).

If you are in a wheelchair or have a disability, you can stop next to the festival venue and enter from the road (the car must be parked in the ordinary parking space). The volunteers will assist you in to the theatre venue. 

At the entrance of the venue you will find a ticket office and help-desk, which can assist you on all requests.

The venue has a toilet facility, which is well marked.

Plan for a full evening at the Peer Gynt festival venue, and purchase a three-course dinner before the theatre play in the Moroccan Anitra’s Restaurant. Tickets to the restaurant must be purchased in advance.

The festival kiosk is open every night of the theatre play, and sells Norwegian waffles, baked goods, local barbecued sausages, chocolate, cold and warm beverages. In the pause it is possibilities to purchase warm soup. The kiosk takes visa and most credit cards.

Make sure to dress and pack according to the weather forecast. The weather changes quickly, and you would be wise to bring an extra layer of wool and a jacket.

Close to the entrance you can also visit the souvenir shop and browse the Peer Gynt Festival souvenirs such as summary booklets, caps, sit-mats, blankets, rain-ponchos and other things you might need for the evening.

If you are in a wheelchair or have a disability, make an agreement with the volunteers to drive up to the hotel. From the hotel there is a gravelled road for 100 metres before you arrive at the concert venue

On your way to the concert venue you will pass sales booths with local products, kiosks with waffles, chocolate, cold and warm beverages, and the toilet facilities are also along this road. There is also a ticket office.
