Welcome to the mountain village Vågå. Here you will find shops with a wide range of wares, cafés, hotel and bowling. It is also home to Vågå Church, which dates from the 1100s. Do not miss the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Edvard Munch and his father´s family.

In the footsteps of Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch is Norway's best-known artist and a world-class painter. He was both recognised and controversial in his lifetime, and many people viewed him as shy, selfish and focused on himself and his own art.

Edvard Munch was interested in how the genes we inherit shape us. Munch's father's family was from Vågå, and as a young man Munch travelled here to seek out his roots. He maintained a close relationship to Vågå throughout his life, visiting several times and thinking of Vågå often.
