Welcome to Hardangervidda

Reindeer numbers have dropped in recent years, from a high of 19,000 in 1998 to around 7000. This fall in numbers is, however, part of a program of resource management by the park's authorities, as a ban on hunting, until recently, meant that herd numbers became too large.

Apart from Finse and Geilo, Hardangervidda National Park is accessible from Rjukan and Eidfjord; there's an excellent national park centre at the latter.
