Hardangervidda National Park, at 3,422 square kilometers, is Norway's largest national park. It spans from Numedal and Uvdal in the east and Røvelseggi and Ullensvang in the west across the Hardanger mountain plateau . Designated as a national park in 1981, today it serves as a popular tourist destination for activities such as hiking, climbing, fishing, and cross-country skiing. The Norwegian Mountain Touring Association maintains a comprehensive network of huts and paths across Hardangervidda. The Bergensbanen railway line and the main Highway 7 cross the plateau.It has the southernmost stock of several arctic animals and plants. Its wild reindeer herds are among the largest in the world.Several hundred nomadic stone age settlements have been found in the area, most likely related to the migration of the reindeer. Ancient trails cross the plateau, linking western and eastern Norway; one example is the Nordmannsslepa linking Eidfjord and Veggli in the Numedal valley with Hol and Uvdal.

From the magnificent spectacle of the Voringsfossen waterfall to a visit to the Church of Kinsarvik, they show us a Norway in its fullness. The vegetation is very rich and the waterfall mentioned above allows us to see the water fall from a height of more than 145 meters. Hiking is one of the activities of the place. Here you will find several spectacular peaks and all are scalable. Many fishermen take advantage to fish for trout in their waters. The park has the most popular cycling route in Norway.Accommodation is guaranteed in cabins, hotels, camps, mobile homes and caravans. Don't miss out on this National Park!!
