The morning for our first day-tour in Hallingskarvet National Park seemed promising, when I stepped out of the tent. It had rained during the night and the clouds seemed to be blowing away.

We had set our eyes on this mountain, Prestholtsskaret, from where the view of Hardangervidda and Hallingskarvet National Parks is said to be amazing.

The weather didn’t feel promising at all anymore. But hiking in the Norwegian mountains in bad weather is better than no hiking at all.

A short walk up, we still had some view of the valley we had come from.

The trail Prestholtsrunda has been prepared by sherpas from Nepal and is really easy to walk.

We did make it to the rocky top but didn’t get to enjoy the view at all. We could hardly find the trail so we had to take the shortest way down again and drop the plan to do another trail to the next peak.

But sometimes the serenity of a world completely covered in mist offers an equally regenerating experience as on a woah-what-a-stunning-view day.

We played around in the snow for a while on the north side of the mountain.

The visibility started to improve as soon as we commenced the descent.

And as soon as we got completely back down again, the sun came out.
