Gudmundur Jonsson Architect | Hardangervidda National Park CenterThe National Park Center is located on a hill with beautiful view over the lake Mjøsvatn and the National Park is visible at distance. It was this magnificent view and the formation of the hillside that became the creator of the idea together with the Norwegian tradition to climb the hillsides in order to conquer the with of the mountain, walking between lodges.

Therefore the stone wall is leading as staircase all the way from the parking place and to the top such that the visitors must work their way to the scenery just as in the landscape they visit. That is why the building is relatively closed until one reaches the glasscase that reveals the scenery reaching out in almost free float above the landscape at last giving the reward for the climbing.
