Hiking in Hallingskarvet National Park

There are many reasons for choosing Hiking in Hallingskarvet National Park

For the majority of the year the national park is layered with snow and ice, making them mostly inaccessible for hiking. Then during the warmer months, the white sheets begin to thin and fade, giving way to gorgeous greens of the rolling hills and mountains. Sharp cliffs rise until the high plateau forms a flat chunk of terrain swept in lush meadows and lakes. Only the wooden cabins show signs of human interaction here, which are sparsely spread.
