Seiland National Park

The national park covers just over half of the island with an area of ​​316 km2. The park contains the 2 northernmost glaciers on mainland Europe. The entire park is inaccessible to vehicles and everything is hardened and wonderfully untouched nature. This makes the park Northern Europe's most inaccessible National Park. In the national park itself, there are no marked paths or open huts. Due to little human traffic, there is a wide range of animal and plant life.
