About

Mountains and Valleys in Gudbrandsdalen

In the mountains north of Lillehammer and west of the Gudbrandsdalen valley, you find the Peer Gynt Kingdom with scenic views and ancient cultural landscapes. Here, the folk tale hero, Peer Gynt, found peace and inspiration for many of his imaginative stories and people still find both peace and joy in travelling in these mountains both summer and winter. Our bike tour starts in Øyer, a few kilometres north of Lillehammer, and passes through traditional Norwegian farm landscapes before you reach the mountain areas at the Skeikampen Resort. From there you follow the Peer Gynt Road to the mountain-valley, Espedalen. The area offers varied terrain, you cycle in open high mountain terrain and through old birch- and pine forests with a view of the peaks in Jotunheimen- and Rondane National Park. From Espedalen it is mostly easy cycling towards the Gudbrandsdalen valley. The rest of the trip follows the valley south towards Lillehammer.

This trip is inspired by Food Trails Gudbrandsdalen with a focus on good food experiences. Every night you can enjoy a tasty dinner while letting the day's experiences sink in. Food Trails Gudbrandsdalen is a collaboration between several producers and organizations that aims to develop extraordinary local food- and beverage experiences. Local food and drink experiences are integral to our cultural heritage. The pure flavours of mountains and plains are a result of fertile ground, fresh air and clean water and a climate for slow-growing products. The fresh air and clean water leave a taste reminiscent of the mountains. Sustainable production is important and comes naturally to us, the way it has for generations.

When you bike from one destination to the next, we transfer your luggage so that you can enjoy the trip with just a light pannier or daypack. The tour is self-guided. There are many opportunities for detours and hiking routes along the way.
