Gålå is situated at the top of the Gudbrandsdalen valley, and is a year-round resort. We have snow from early November until April and a range of crosscountry trails and downhill pistes and lifts that are groomed and in operation for as long as possible. The first summer guests usually begin to arrive as the last ski enthusiasts are leaving!

Summer at Gålå provides the opportunity for mountaineering, mountain biking, canoeing, walking, riding, swimming or playing tennis in glorious surroundings. You can even go on an "elk safari" !

Henrik Ibsen's world famous poetic drama, "Peer Gynt" is performed annually at a site of great natural beauty. A truly memorable experience. Spring with its profusion of wild flowers and the changing colours of Autumn complete the picture.

In Gålå we live in and from nature. This is why environmental consciousness is serious business for all of us. Our goal in participating in these environmental programmes is to make the company's colleagues and guests more aware of the unique environment surrounding us at Gålå. For more than 100 years, Gålå has accommodated visitors, and we would like our nature, culture and traditions to be protected and preserved. For our long traditions to live on into the future, Gålå must continue to be as clean and beautiful as it is today.
