Hardangervidda is also the home of several bird and animal species which have almost become extinct. The artic flora and fauna on the plateau is most varied and interesting, as Hardangervidda is the only place in the world where species belonging in a western climate and those thriving in an eastern, inland climate can be found in the same area. The landscape on Hardangervidda is also very varied. On the western side it is wild and dramatic with deep and narrow valleys and majestic waterfalls and glaciers, whilst the eastern landscape is more gentle.
