Hardangervidda is the largest mountain plateau in Europe. This is where you will find Norway's largest national park. The scenery is varied with steep mountainsides and spectacular views. The countryside there is diverse, ranging from flat plains on the eastern side to steep mountains and fjords in the west. It is home to Europe's lagerst herd of wild reindeer and several other artctic plants and animals. There are many opportunities for fishing, and mountain trout from Hardangercidda are famous for their excellent quality.

It was quite windy with heavy showers on the day I visited this region. I didn't really participate in a proper trek here, but did do a short walk. The terrain is quite bleak but still stunning. I can imagine it would be quite hard...More

The Queen's Trail is along the outskirts of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau, between Kinsarvik and Lofthus. This was a very demanding hike especially since it was constantly raining which also made it dangerous. We only got to see the fjords below a few times because...More

We hiked through Hardangervidda last August and there were still snow fields, some of them quite large. So I guess snow in that area doesn't melt completely never.
