Hardangervidda National Park

Beautiful views

The Hardangervidda National Park is the largest park in Norway covering over 3500 km². It also has the largest population of wild reindeer in northern Europe.

The climate varies greatly from one place to another within Hardangervidda National Park. The park can be divided into two main regions: east and west. The eastern part of the plateau is relatively dry, while the wetter western part has a richer vegetation. It is in the western area that one finds Norway's highest glaciers, Hardangerjøkulen and Sørfjord. The park has many other wonderful places to see, such as Måbø Valley and the Vøringsfossen waterfalls which are over 140 metres high. Many unmarked trails are available for walking and cycling. The Rallavergen trail is 80 km long and is the most popular cycling trail in the park. The Hardangervidda Nature Centre is ideal for family visits. The region is often considered as the "Norwegian orchard" because fruits and berries grow in large quantities. The lakes and rivers are also teeming with trout and you can fish for free, without a permit. Motorhome travellers can camp almost anywhere within the park, except in a cultivated field, a parking lot or within 150m of a house.
