By the lake, Gålåvatnet, between forests and steep mountains in the Gudbrandsdalen valley, you can experience Norway's most famous legends and folktales in a spectacular outdoor theatre. Since 1989, thousands of visitors have flocked to Gålåvatnet to experience the performance of Henrik Ibsen's drama about the universe of the historical Peer. With nature as the amphitheatre and Gålåvatn as the backdrop, few leave Gålå without feeling a kinship with Peer. The dramatic play "Peer Gynt" is performed in theatres all over the world. The inspiration for the play by Henrik Ibsen comes from Gålå. During the Peer Gynt conference in Gudbrandsdalen, Henrik Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" is performed at Gålå every August.
