The Right to Roam – joys and obligations

Everyone is welcome in Femundsmarka, but remember to take care of nature! Show consideration for bird and animal life, and do not leave any traces behind. You are nature’s guest when you visit the national park. The Right to Roam allows us to travel freely. Nevertheless, you are obligated to show consideration so that animals and plants are not harmed or disturbed. Leave nature the way you want to find it.

Dry pine tree.

Welcome to Femundsmarka, take care of nature

Save the trees! The trees in the national park are protected; this also applies to the old, dry pines. These are often referred to as ‘gadd’. These old, silver-gray pines are a characteristic of Femundsmarka, and the dead trees are home to many rare animal and plant species.

Campfires. Visitors are permitted to use small twigs from trees, but first and foremost twigs found on the ground. Remember that campfires are prohibited during the period from April 15 to September 15. However, visitors are permitted to light campfires in places where there are no obvious risks of forest fires. Do not make new fire pits, use the existing ones. Firewood is delivered to certain campsites and this can be used, but with care.

Trash must not be left or burned in the national park, visitors must take it with them when they leave and dispose of it properly. Feel free to pick up any trash that you find on your way.

Go wherever you want, on foot or on skis. We appreciate you taking care when visiting the park so that you leave no trace when the next visitors come to the area. Wildlife is particularly vulnerable to disturbance during the calving and breeding season in the spring.

Camping. Some species in Femundsmarka are particularly vulnerable to disturbance during certain periods of the year. Several vulnerable species nest near watercourses and islands; you are not permitted to camp on islands.

Of course you may go to the bathroom, but dig a hole of at least 15 cm and cover it afterwards. If you are not tough enough to use moss, use biodegradable toilet paper or take the paper with you when you leave. Wet wipes and panty liners are not biodegradable and must never be left behind.

You may bring your dog along on your trip, but remember to keep it on a leash between 1 April to 20 August. Make sure that your dog does not disturb the domesticated reindeer when you are passing through their grazing areas. Small, cute dogs can also cause harm.

Drones can disturb wildlife and other users of the national park and are therefore prohibited unless special permission has been granted.

Picking berries and mushrooms. Please note that there are several rare plant species in the national park that can be difficult to identify. Therefore, it is important that you don’t pick plants other than berries and mushrooms.

Remember that fishing and hunting licenses are required, and you may also need to inform the landowner.

The national park has noise restrictions. Among other things, motorized ice drills are prohibited.
