Hallingskarvet mountain area is among the biggest continuous alpine plateaus in Europe, with summits up to 1933 metres above sea level.
The plateau is 35 km long and up to 5 km wide. Apart from the dramatic landscape element, there are fertile hill sides and valleys around the whole mountain with several vegetation types and biotopes. Hallingskarvet offers innumerable possibilities for hiking and several huts just outside the national park are open to all visitors.
The purpose of designating the Hallingskarvet area as a national park is to conserve a large connected and practically untouched mountain area.
