You can hike for days and weeks on a network of marked trails and stay overnight in cabins owned by the norwegian hiking association (DNT). Some cabins are self-serviced, others staffed. The staffed lodges provide accommodation and full pension. With thousands of lakes the plateau is also an eldorado for  hikers with tents and fishing rods.

Hardangervidda is an important area as the home of the largest wild reindeer herds in Europe. The plateau has a large diversity of plants and species. The western part of the national park has many intriguing valleys. Hardangerjøkulen, one of Norways largest glaciers you can see in north west.

Eidfjord, Ullensvang and Odda are the main gateways to this unique mountain area. In Odda you will find the highest mountain in the nationalpark; Sandfloeggi at 1720 m.a.s.l.
