Birdwatching Hardangervidda (parking Tinnhølen)

  •  /  km From You

Hardangervidda is the largest mountain plateau in Europe, covering an area of about 6,500 km2. With an average elevation of 1,100 metres, which is well above the tree limit, the climate is cold and alpine year-round. The barren landscape is dominated by rolling moraine hills, with marshes and lakes lined by willow and dwarf birch in between. In the north, the dark ridge Hallingskarvet rise in stark contrast to the gleaming white glacier Hardangerjøkulen. In the south-west the brick-shaped rock formation Hårteigen makes an outstanding landmark. The road to Lake Tinnhølen reaches the heart of the plateu, and you may find birds like Red-necked Phalarope, Great Snipe and a variety of other montane species here.
