Take a boat into Hardangervidda National Park

With Halnekongen as transport, you get access to many great hikes into the national park, but it is also possible to use the boat as a wonderful tour of the national park. The boat offers a ride from Halne Fjellstugu located at Rv7, to the stops Skaupa and Sleipa. The popular boat route has been in operation since 1954, when the dam at Sleipa was built. Also feel free to visit Halne Fjellstugu, which can tell you about great hiking trips starting at Halnekongen, or for a lovely lunch!

Kayaking on Finse

Experience paddling in "Arctic waters"!

Paddling at Finse must be the closest one can come to paddling in "arctic waters" with a magical view over the mountains and glaciers. Kayaking at the Finsevann lake takes place in steady, double kayaks, with a focus on security and learning. The guides on the tour will tell you the exciting story of the area from the stone age hunting culture, settlements, and the importance of the wild reindeer, to the building of the Bergen rail line. You will also hear more about Finse as a testing and training area for polar expeditions from the past and present.
