Beautiful Norwegian Reindeer Lookout (7 HQ Photos)

The Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion is located at Hjerkinn on the outskirts of Dovrefjell National Park, overlooking the Snøhetta mountain massif. The building is open to the public and serves as an observation pavilion for the Wild Reindeer Foundation educational program.

A nature path takes you to the top of the mountain where you can catch a rare view of the Reindeer that live in the area. The lookout is built to blend in with the landscape and is rarely noticed by the easily-startled Reindeer until they're very close.

    For reindeers? I think it's to watch Muskox, cause in this area is the only population of them in europe.

    Hmmmm… a place in the middle of nowhere that is close to someplace called "Hjerkinn "?? I'm thinking it's more of a high society spank studio than a reindeer observatory.

    No wonder the EU is in worse financial shape than the US… They spend money building something like this that over looks nothing.

      Norway is not part of the EU and got lots of money because of the oilindustry.

    Looks great, beautiful carved wood. Probably nice to hang out.
    Only … if it blends in the surroundings, like it does in picture 2, what happens with the birds smashing to the window?
