Hardangervidda is the largest peneplain in Europe. In winter, extreme temperatures below -20°C are typical, and since the plain is mostly devoid of trees, punishing winds add to the hostility of the terrain. With these conditions, the plateau provides an environment close to Greenland or Antarctica, which is why Hardangervidda has been one of the most popular training grounds for Polar expeditions. The polar pioneers Amundsen and Shackleton have both trained here, as have famous modern explorers like Børge Ousland and Hannah McKeand. Following in these footsteps, we picked the Hardanger plateau as the site for our first big winter adventure. Our goal is to ski across the plateau unguided, unsupported, and unassisted. We will start from Skinnarbu in the South-East on January 28th and hope to arrive in Finse before February 8th, so we can attend the Expedition Finse conference on Feb 9th and 10th.
