Wilderness living in Børgefjell national park

Remote, rugged and wild are three words that perhaps characterise Børgefjell best. The park’s remote and rugged landscape of granite peaks, tumbling waterfalls, birch clad valleys, marshland and lakes provide a dramatic, varied and rugged terrain. The National Park is home to the rare Arctic Fox, European Brown Bear, Lynx, Wolverine, moose, Golden eagle and Snowy owl.
