Fall in love with HARDANGERVIDDA
3-day (can be easily extended)
Are you wondering what the Hardangervidda is? Do you want to get an insight into this mountain plateau that so many have fallen in love with? We give you a sneak peek into the glory with two nights at Halne Fjellstue and an activity day in between. You get a 20 km trip with your own dog sled in the plateau, a snowshoe / ski trip into the silence on your own after a marked trail, a taste of the Hardangervidda for dinner - and if you are really lucky you get a story or two from the mountaineer Geirmund ..
LEARN DOG DRIVING AT HARDANGERVIDDA
( 5 days) Family friendly!
Get to know dog sledding and life in mountain Norway. You will get to know the husky life and learn to drive your own dog team, in addition to experiencing one of Norway's most beautiful mountain areas. Halne Fjellstugu welcomes you with its fantastic menu and you get the first evening to get used to the fresh mountain air 1100 meters above sea level. The next morning there will be a good breakfast before there will be an opportunity to explore the area on your own. Maybe you have skis or you can borrow snowshoes. For now you will enjoy the silence before the x number of eager huskies come to the farm and give you more than enough to do. You get to meet dog handlers and dogs in the afternoon where you learn how to harness dogs and put them in buckets. Then you will learn to drive your own sled. This afternoon it will be "only" a 20 km trip to get to know dog sledding. After a delicious dinner at Fjellstugu, there will be dog talk with dog handlers and preparations for the next day's expedition. For the next day you will go on a trip for two full days with your own dog team you are responsible for the whole trip. The trip goes to the mountain cabin at Skaupa. Here you get both a nature experience and some new, hairy friends along the way. At the simple cabin in the heart of the Hardangervidda, you get to take care of dogs and experience the simple mountain life. On the last day, just enjoy the dogs, the silence and the nature. Now you have become a real dog walker and can relax while gliding away in all the white. At Halne they welcome you with a hot shower, another fantastic meal and a quiet evening in front of the fireplace to enjoy the mountain life before you go home the next day.
