Nature and wildlife
The Bardufoss Region stretches from the towering mountains inlands to the spectacular coastal landscapes, with meandring rivers, waterfalls and extensive valleys. Widespread pine forests fill the valley floors, which create sceneries quite uniqe for this region. The bare mountain tops stand in great contrast to the rich flora of the valleys, and the green valley sides adjacent to the deep and dark fjords frames the incredible nature of the region.
It is deeply rooted in the norwegian culture to preserve and protect our essential nature and wildlife, and the Bardufoss Region is lucky to embrace two ample national parks, the Øvre Dividal National Park and the Rohkunborri National Park. The two national parks contains a great wildlife worth protecting, and these areas are one of the few where you can observe the four large predators of norwegian nature.
