With a surface close to 8,000 km2 and a height which oscilates between 1,100 and 1,400 meters, the Hardangervidda is the most extensive plateau in Europe. Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen planned and prepared lots of expeditions at the Hardangervidda.

Norway, EUROPE

In these spots, there is scarce vegetation due to the harsh climatic conditions (violent winds, frequent storms and a winter as bitter as in the North of the country). In fact, the Hardangervidda is located above the wooded area and indicates the southern border in the introduction of lots of arctic plants. Here we can find the biggest concentration of reindeers in northern Europe.

Although the plateau’s dominant area is a slope full of furrows, there are also montanious zones. In the western area of the plateau, which has an Alpine nature, it goes down abruptly towards narrow valleys and to the Sørfjord fjord. In the Northwest, we find one of the biggest glaciers in Norway, the Hardangerjøkulen. The Hårteigen peak, in the center of the plateau, is like an indicative pole: it is 1,960 meters high and its peculiar shape, similar to a hat, can be seen almost from every point of the plateau.
