  • PF: for the habitat types that can have a non-priority as well as a priority form (6210, 7130, 9430) enter "X" in the column PF to indicate the priority form.
  • NP: in case that a habitat type no longer exists in the site enter: x (optional)
  • Cover: decimal values can be entered
  • Caves: for habitat types 8310, 8330 (caves) enter the number of caves if estimated surface is not available.
  • Data quality: G = 'Good' (e.g. based on surveys); M = 'Moderate' (e.g. based on partial data with some extrapolation); P = 'Poor' (e.g. rough estimation)

4.2 Quality and importance

In Hotagen Nature Reserve youll still find a lot of genuine wilderness. This mountain area, so abundant in lakes and bogs, is surrounded by forests some of which show no signs of forestry.Around Gråberget in the east is one of Swedens foremost virgin forest regions. Here youll find enormous firs, some which are 350-400 years old. The abundance of both fallen and upright dead trees give the area its character and provides the perfect conditions for a rich and diverse wild life. In the south around Tjärnafjäll and Stor-Erfjället, theres another interesting virgin forest region. Here you can experience the true essence and soul of this primitive forest. Even if you dont find any bears - you might find yourself. The forest around Hotagsfjällen is among Swedens largest bear habitat. With keen observation you might at least see traces of one of the forests bears. The actual mountain region is relatively flat,and the highest peaks, Murrjället and Munsfjället are only 1200 meters above sea level. So it isnt wide vistas, majestic mountains and deep valleys which provide the excitement in this nature reserve. No, the excitement here is created more by the rich wild life and thediversified nature. Virgin forests and bare mountains, bogs and wetlands, unregulated lakes and watercourses. All blended to provide favorable conditions for bears, wolverines, lynx, as well as Arctic fox, otters, beavers and golden eaglesYou might not meet any of these more or lesslegendary animals.But they are there - of this you can be sure!If you really want to experience nature on its own terms, you have unique possibilities here.However you may have to forge through the woods making your own trail with the aid of a map and compass.Like many other nature reserves in the mountainareas, this is a workplace for reindeer-herdingSamis. We should maybe consider this when we so often speak of the mountain areas as our "last unspoiled wilderness"!The sound of the golden plovers wild-sounding whistle belongs in the mountain
