Overview

..... an extraordinary experience! In beautiful and dramatic Western Norway, at the foot of the Voeringsfoss waterfall and by the ascent of the Maaboedalen valley, lies the Hardangervidda Nature Center at Eidfjord with its breathtaking but unobtrusive architecture. The purpose of the center is to gather and distribute knowledge about interaction in nature and human activities. Our task is to bring about an intimate meeting of modern man and nature. The Hardangervidda Nature Center at Eidfjord is a center for the whole family, featuring lively exhibitions, hand-on activities, and visual effects. Today the center is one of the leading centers of its kind, featuring pioneering technological effects. The super video graph is a modern panoramic cinema, built in cooperation with Ivo Caprino who also made the film which is shown here. In the cinema you can take off on a journey past fjords, mountains and waterfalls.

Newly rebuilt exhibition, very high quality considering it's size and relatively remote location. The exhibit tells the story of Norway's geological, cultural and natural history with innovative, modern exhibits, dioramas and Audiovisual experiences. Certainly worth an hour or two visit on the way to the...More

Just like many of the posts here I was very underwhelmed with this place. It now costs even more so adult entrance fee is 160 nkk. The 20 min panoramic video is mediocre at best in 2018. It would have been amazing in the late...More

This senter feels very out of date - the exhibition of animals deals with all the kinds of animals in Hardangervidda - and the 5 screen film must be nearly 30 years old.

Great panoramic film of area. Building fits surroundings with grass and goats on roof. Shop and toilets. But exhibits disappointing. The birds were difficult to see and not always named. The English descriptions of exhibits were far too short and did not explain well. There...More
