Hardangervidda national park is located in the middle of the southern part of Norway. It is Europe’s largest high mountain plateau, and the national park covers 3422 km2 of it. It was established in 1981 and is a vast and varied place with lots of opportunities for hiking and exploring. There are many trails and open huts, both staffed and self-contained, that visitors can use. But there are also plenty of remote, rarely visited areas that are inviting to more adventurous explorers. Hardangervidda is especially known for its many lakes and waters with rich fishing opportunities.
