Huge, wild forest with mountain-birch are the characteristics of Pieljekaise National Park. The name means in Sámi language "the ear mountain" referring to the shape that the two mountain tops forms together.

The park is an important part for the reindeers of the Sámi-village "Semijaur-Njargs".

If you want more info about the park you can take a look at the parks website : Pieljekaise National Park



I love the national Parks in Sweden and it is a dream of Åke and me to have visited all of them at some day. It won't be easy as not all of them are so easy to reach, but we want to give it a try anyway :-)
