Hallingskarvet is a mountain range in southern Norway stretching from Geilo to Finse in Vestland and Viken counties. The highest point is the 1,933-metre (6,342 ft) tall mountain Folarskardnuten in Hol Municipality in Viken county.

In the north, there is a large dammed lake called Strandavatnet. The Bergen Line railway, which runs south of Hallingskarvet, has its highest stop at Finse Station at an elevation of 1,222 metres (4,009 ft).[2]
