Overview
Details

A real high mountain cruise in a comfortable boat with an experienced guide on northern Europe's biggest high mountain plateau.

The trip starts at Halne Mountain Lodge where we board the boat Halnekongen and travel 13 km on the lake Halnefjorden into the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.

We enjoy the closeness to nature while we are served a taste of Hardangervidda.

Hardangervidda has a rich animal and bird life, and we can prepare ourselves for exotic sounds. We will have the chance to see rare bird species like f.ex. the ring ouzel, so if you have a pair of binoculars we suggest they come along for the trip.

When we sail down the lake we'll have a fantastic view of the Hallingskarvet mountain formation, the Hardangerjøkulen glacier and over the vast Hardangervidda mountain plateau, so keep your camera ready.

The guide will take us back in time and tell us about the high mountains' history up until the modern day. There's been human activity here for close to 8000 years and there are a lot of traces from ancient times. Trappers, live-stock drovers, bishops, reindeer herders, hunters and ramblers layed their routes here and Halne has been a central area.

Hardangervidda national park is the home of Europe's largest herd of wild reindeer, and the guide will give us insight into the importance of preserving this herd and it's environment. There are a lot of challenges associated with the reindeer and the national park, the guide will tell us about todays administration and politics.

This trip will not only give you an amazing experience out in nature, but also give you a lot of knowledge about the mountain and it's ecosystem and history - that you can bring with you on future hiking trips.

The trip lasts about 2 hours, and you are very welcome to go for a hike after the return and buy yourself a good meal at Halne Fjellstugu afterwards.
