Forollhogna National Park
Park Overview
Forollhogna National Park was established at kgl res. of 21 December 2001. The purpose of establishing the National Park is: - to preserve a large, continuous and substantially untouched mountainous area, - to preserve in natural state landscape forms and biodiversity with a varied vegetation with large elements of demanding plant species and a rich wildlife with a highly productive wild reindeer strain - to protect cultural heritage and cultural landscape features. Mountain vegetation is the dominant vegetation type in the national park, as most of the area is above the forest boundary. The nutrient-rich, calcareous rocks weather easily and often give rise to great species richness and sometimes infestations of occasionally rare species. Forollhogna / Gauldalsvidda is one of the few high mountain areas in Norway where the wild reindeer trunk has fairly intact summer and winter pastures. The forollhog reindeer is also one of the world's most productive tribes. Within the national park, the other two species, which are often referred to as indicator species for an intact high mountain ecosystem, wolverine and mountain reef, occur to a limited extent. The whole area is good production areas for lirype and also important living areas for mountain ridge. The area houses traditional nesting sites for birds of prey, among others. for hunting falcon and king eagle. No other mountain areas in Hedmark have such a large diversity of wetland birds. A number of species that are on the official list of endangered species in Norway have been identified in the area. Of mammalian species, wolverine and mountain reefs are the most important. Several endangered bird species occur. regularly in the area. The Forollhogna area contains a wide range of cultural heritage types (house ruins, Sami sacrificial sites, ironworks,
