Hardangervidda covers an area of approx. 8000 km2 and is Northern Europe’s largest mountain plateau. It has broad plains and rolling hills. In the west, the mountain range is more dramatic. Here are good fishing opportunities, lush flora and various wildlife species, and spectacular waterfalls. The plateau extends from Røldal in the south to Finsedalen near Bergensbanen railway in the north. The plateau is approx. 1100–1200 masl. Hardangervidda’s highest point is Sandfloeggi, at 1721 masl. This is home to the largest wild reindeer flock in Europe, as well as other Arctic mammals and birds such as the Arctic fox and the snowy owl.
