The area consists of mountainous landscapes between 700 to 1700 meters a.s.l., dominated by ridges above timberline in the northwest and forests and wetlands in the lower southeast. Traces of glacial activity is found everywhere in the form of gravel deposits, moraines, drumlins and meltwater channels. There are few roads and technical installations, and mainly in the protected landscapes. But humans have lived here for thousands of years. You can stumble upon old pitfall traps for moose and reindeer, charcoal pits and iron slag from bog iron production. From more recent times, there are mountain farms, hayfields, cattle trails, stone huts and more. All this activity has influenced the biodiversity, with many plants, birds and animals today that are dependent on grazing livestock.
