We will also visit Ringebu Stavechurch and listen to author Lars Mytting tell us about his latest book that revolves around the old church.

The area is also home to Henrik Ibsen’s famous character “Peer Gynt” and we will journey through his landscape and an excerpt from the play will be performed.
