The Hardangervidda is a huge area without roads to the east (inland) of Hardangerfjord. It is possible to ski or hike across it from hut to hut, taking days or weeks away from civilisation.
To the south of Hardangervidda is the Setesdalheiene with ski resorts like Hovden and Rauland, with more ski resorts and the canal further east in Telemark.
To the west of Hardangervidda is the Folgefonn glacier, with the Hardangerjokulen glacier to the north.
Closer to Stavanger, there are mountains to the east and north east, in the Ryfylke and Sirdal. The RV45 through Hunnedalen is the link from upper Sirdal to Sandnes and Stavanger, with Frafjord and Manafossen waterfall being a short diversion off to the north.
