Hardangervidda National Park is the largest national park in Norway, covering 1,321 square miles. It spans from Numedal and Uvdal in the east and Røvelseggi and Ullensvang in the west across the Hardanger mountain plateau. The reindeer population on the Hardangervidda plateau is the largest wild reindeer population in Europe, and is therefore important for its ecological value, but also for its economical and recreational value for hunters and landowners.
Visitors can experience an interactive exhibit about nature and wild reindeer.
The exhibition includes as many as 22 interactive installations, all in Norwegian and English. They also offer a mini cinema with short films by Arne Nævra, as well as a separate French cave with original tools and objects made of wild reindeer bones more than 17,000 years ago in France.

In his youth he worked with artistic multimedia and music groups from the Art Academy in Oslo. He has always been very fond of nature and hunting has been a big part of his life. As a result he felt he had a fairly good background and experience to take on on the job. In addition to being on the Board of Directors for the Center, he is also the daily operations manager.
