For the majority of the year the national park is layered with snow and ice, making them mostly inaccessible for hiking. Then during the warmer months, the white sheets begin to thin and fade, giving way to gorgeous greens of the rolling hills and mountains. Sharp cliffs rise until the high plateau forms a flat chunk of terrain swept in lush meadows and lakes. Only the wooden cabins show signs of human interaction here, which are sparsely spread.

It covers 450 square kilometers protecting a mountain range and its native wild reindeer, a key factor in the formation of the park in 2006.
