Peer Gynt Vegen

The Peer Gynt Road is a 60-kilometre-long tourist mountain road, named after the folkloric character Per Gynt. It is a toll road (free for cyclists) and offers scenic views of the Jotunheimen region.  The gravel route winds through the eastern part of Norway in Innlandet county, passing by picturesque villages such as Skeikampen, Fagerhøy, Gålå, Fefor, and Dalseter. The northern part of the route connects with the famous Mjolkevegen route, making it a great add-on to your adventure.

 

Accessible only during the summer months, typically from June 1st, the road closes once snowfall begins. Trains from Oslo and Trondheim stop at both ends of the route (Vinstra and Lillehammer), making it easy to start from either location. Tip: Vinstra will offer more altitude descent.
