Gateway to the mighty HardangerVidda

Hardangervidda is a Norwegian mountain plateau located in the counties of Buskerud, Telemark and Hordaland. It covers an area of approximately 8000 km² and is Northern Europe’s largest mountain plateau. The plateau consists of approximately one billion years old Precambrian bedrock, mainly dominated by hard gneiss and granite. About 600 million years ago the bedrock eroded substantially. Today’s flat landscape of the Hardangervidda is breathtaking during any season of the year. Winter storms can often render the vidda closed and non-crossable.

Vøringfossen Waterfall

Enjoy the spectacular and most famous waterfall in Norway, with a free fall of 145m, and a total fall of 182m. Enjoy great views from the new constructed walk-way over the great falls.

Kjeåsen

Kjeåsen is a mountain farm in Eidfjord in Hordaland. The farm is located on a ledge in the mountains about 530 m high in Simadalsfjorden. The farm is no longer in operation but it is widely visited by tourists. The farm has been called “the world’s most inaccessible.”
Kjeåsen is reachable by foot up the steep path from the Sima power plant. This was the farm road until 1974, when the new road and tunnel to Kjeåsen were built. The name Kjeåsen means young goat and hill. The farm has been inhabited since at least the 1650s. Until the road to the farm was built, all transport went on the steep path from the waterfront. In the 1930s, a cable car was built capable of carrying food and other goods to the farm. The place offers spectacular views and walking trails overlooking Eidfjord.
