The desolate wilderness and tranquility are the main characteristics of the Fjallabak Nature Reserve. It is 47.000 hectares and is over 500 meters above see level.
The Fjallabak region takes its name from the numerous wild and rugged mountains with deeply incised valleys, which are found there. The area is mostly undisturbed and the protection order has meant that utilisation of the land has been sensible and the conduct of it fairly good.
There are no real roads, only old trails and you have to cross a small river from time to time but there are many opportunities for short and long hikes across this vast area
