Combine a boat ride across a Hardangervidda lake with a short hike. The Halnekongen boat runs across Halnefjord Lake in July and August, taking you 13 kilometers across the plateau. The boat stops at two docks at the far end of the lake, and you can easily hike between the two. Make sure to pack a picnic and enjoy the raw nature at the edge of Hardangervidda National Park.
