Hardangervidda is a mountain plateau in central southern Norway, covering parts of the counties of Buskerud, Hordaland and Telemark. It is the largest plateau of its kind in Europe, with a cold year-round alpine climate, and one of Norway’s largest glaciers, Hardangerjøkulen, is situated here. Much of the plateau is protected as part of Hardangervidda National Park.
At the entrance to Hardangervidda, Haugastøl acts as a gateway to the mountains, both in winter and summer.
The place is best knows to be the starting point for the bicycle trail, Rallarvegen in the summer, and the greatest snowkite destination on earth in the winter.
