Wild reindeer

The wild reindeer herd is now at a stable level after years of hunting bans and controls. 30 years ago they were more or less extinct but are now healthy and well looked after by the authorities. The reindeer have a dominating position over the planning authorities when it comes to deciding the limits of building roads and tourist developments.

The reindeer and ptarmigan attract many hunters to our area, including the well known professor Friis who wrote a well read book on the mountains.
