Attractions at the two Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centres

Hardangervidda National Park Centre

The Hardangervidda national park centre at Skinnarbu is located at the gateway of one of Europe’s
largest national parks. The centre is located by road (Rv 37) between Rjukan and Rauland. Our wild reindeer exhibition opened in 2013 and contains 22 interactive installations as well as a movie theatre and cafe.

Follow the migration of the wild reindeer in prehistoric times and see different tools made by man more than 17 000 years ago in the south of France (Dordogne). See pictures and videos from camera attached to the reindeer Bella for one year (2012) following her on the Hardangervidda plateau. Watch footage from the Norwegian photographer Arne Nævra. We have a digital library containing information on plants, animals and related issues (mainly on species from Hardangervidda). The entire exhibition is in English and Norwegian. Our cafe has the most spectacular view over Hardangervidda. There is many options for hiking, fishing, boat trip into the national park.
