Hardangervidda National Park

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 (Hardangervidda). 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 (DNT) 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. The highest point on the plateau is at the top of the Hardangerjøkulen glacier, which reaches a height of 1,863 m. The prominent peak of Hårteigen 1,690 m is visible across much of the plateau.
