Hardangervidda National Park


It took a bit of coaxing, but Saturday afternoon we convinced the kids to get back in the car to explore Hardangervidda National Park. Our first stop was the Vøringfossen waterfall, with an impressive sheer drop of 145 meters.

On our way back to the parking lot, Steffen was determined to get a jumping photo. To mixed reviews.

We then hopped back in the car to do some exploring of the park which is Europe’s largest high-altitude plateau. There are rushing rivers, small and large waterfalls, rolling hills and fields. We saw a large dam off in the distance, so drove up there to check it out. Again, it was hard to get the girls up and going, but once they did, we couldn’t stop them! Hannah and Olivia decided they wanted to touch snow (in summer!) so set off on a hike up the mountain. The rest of us joined them, and it was so fun! I love that they had the idea and followed through on the execution. We just went along to make sure they were safe. I love their sense of adventure!
