Built-up areas, rest areas, parks and parking lots are exempt from the statutory Right to Roam.
Avoid leaving any trace, such as cairns, tent pegs, etc. Allow others to have the same great experience that you’ve had.
If you are in an area without bins, take your waste back with you for proper disposal.
If none are available, dig a pit in the ground. Avoid using wet wipes, as they take a long time to decompose.
Camping closer than 150 meters from an occupied house or cabin is forbidden. You can camp on cultivated land only by permission from the landowner.
The roads in Hardanger are narrow, so be extra cautious. Keep well clear of cyclists when passing them. Be especially mindful of bicycles in tunnels.
Between 15 April and 15 September, there is a ban on open fires. Use designated sites for campfires, and make sure there is no risk of a forest or brush fire.
