The Peer Gynt Ski Area is ideal for those who'd like to combine cross-country skiing with alpine skiing. All the facilities in the ski region are within easy reach of all the hotels in the area. A ski bus links the resorts of Espedalen, Fefor, and Gålå. In all, there are 28km (17 miles) of slopes, 8 lifts, 1 chairlift, and 24 slopes. In the entire area there are 460km (285 miles) of well-prepared trails and 170km (105 miles) of stick-marked trails in beautiful surroundings. Skiers rate the Peer Gynt Trail as Norway's best cross-country skiing area, and floodlit trails in Espedalen and in Gålå make it possible to ski even after dinner.

To ski the area, you can purchase a 1-day Troll Pass, costing NOK320 ($64/£32) for adults and NOK265 ($53/£27) for children. The pass entitles you to all the lifts in the area. Check with the local resorts for further information. You can pick up maps and other data at the tourist center at Vinstra.

In summer, Norske Bygdeopplevelser (tel. 61-28-99-70) offers cycling trips and mountain hikes through the Peer Gynt land.
