Gålå Resort in Norway

Gålåvatnet, 2646 Gålå

Gålå is a Norwegian resort in the district of Gudbrandsdalen, catering for both winter and summer leisure activities. It is situated on the Peer Gynt trail, a 100 km cross-country tourist road.

The resort is named after the old mountain farm Gålå. The mountain farm is named after the lake Gålå (Gålåvatnet 'Gålå lake') - and the lake is named after the river Golo. The Norse form of the river name was probably *Gola - and is then derived from the verb gola 'howl, yell, scream'. (The river has a steep fall, and makes a lot of noise.)

Gålå is a village in Sør-Fron, Oppland, Norway. It is situated in the traditional district of Gudbrandsdalen. Gålå is located on a mountain plateau 930 meters above sea level, and is situated on the Peer Gynt Road (Peer Gyntveien). The mountain road is only open in the summer months. The village also has a small airport, Wadahl flyplass. [1]
