Volvo V60 Cross Country
At home anywhere
The Hardanger mountain plateau in Norway is a challenging place. But this Swede feels right at home.
Today, Volvo cars are stronger, safer and bolder than ever before. To put this adventurous spirit to the test, we took a Volvo V60 Cross Country across the border to neighbouring Norway and went in search of adventure on the Hardanger mountain plateau – or as the locals call it, Hardangervidda.

The Beauty in contrast
An adventure for all seasons
During the summer, Hardangervidda is a popular tourist destination and ideal for lots of different outdoor activities. So, if you want a change of pace, you can always swap four wheels for two hiking boots and take advantage of the many trails, which are protected by the Hardangervidda National Park. Hardangervidda National Park is the largest national park in Norway – it covers a vast area of 3,422 square kilometres and features a comprehensive network of huts across the plateau, which are open to all hikers and maintained by the Norwegian Mountain Touring Association.
The National Tourist Route at Hardangervidda runs from Eidfjord to Haugastøl, a total distance of 67 km (Road 7). For more information, visit www.nasjonaleturistveger.no.
