Saltfjellet-Svartisen National Park
Saltfjellet-Svartisen National Park is a national park in Norway, located in Nordland County specifically. It is situated within the municipalities of Bodo, Saltdal, Rodoy, Rana, Meloy, and Beiarn. The Nordlandsbanen railway line and the European Route E06 highway both follow the eastern and southern borders that go around the park.
It is over 800 square miles, and it is one of the biggest national parks in Norway. It has a richly varied landscape and selection of wildlife to see. It has glaciers, mountain formations, mountain plateaus, and densely forested valleys. The national park comprises parts of the Saltfjellet mountain range, as well. The Svartisen glacier is one of the central parts of the park. There are a number of Sami cultural landmarks located within the park, as well.
This national park has a massive network of marked trails, and there is one that follows an old telegraph line between Saltdal and Rana. There are several unmanned cabins and mountain huts along the trails. It’s interesting to see the various abodes and stations along the trails as you’re hiking through.
Professional fishermen and amateur anglers alike will find awesome fishing spots for char and trout in the mountain lakes of Saltfjellet. Furthermore, there are several major salmon rivers that originate in the national park, and the Ranaelva River is one of those.
The eastern areas of the park have small game hunting, and there are a lot of ptarmigan to hunt. Moose hunters should go the center of the park.
The westernmost areas of the park have tall mountains, deep fjords, glaciers, and more beautiful scenery.
You can stop wherever you want in the national park, and you can camp there for the night. The only rule is that you have to clean up afterward and take your stuff home with you.
You can go wherever you want, on skis or on foot. You can’t use anything with an engine. This is pristine, untouched wilderness, and it is going to stay that way.
You could light a fire, but there is a basic ban on fires in woodland areas between mid-April and mid-September. You should never leave behind a burning campfire.
You can pick common plants, mushrooms, and berries for your own personal use, but you cannot pick items for commercial use or resale.
