Other Site Characteristics

Softly rounded hummocked mountainridge dominating the park, surrounded by two parallel situated valleys contributed with deltaland and terminal moraines, partly high and steep eskers on the plain below the southfacing slope of the mountain Vadvetjåkka. 80% bare mountain. South facing precipice covered by lush meadow characterised birchforest. Large areas of the forest destroyed by the outbreaks of the larva of Oporinia autumnata, with assaults from the 50's and 60's are still visible. The short distance to the Atlantic ocean with rain coming from the west and limestone bedrock favours the flora, contributing the nearly 300 vascular plant species, among them some rare species. The deltaland features alternating open water and wide fenses, with high diversity in birdlife, showing around 70 species, but the frequency of individuals are extremely low. Few signs of earlier land clearance, probably done by settlers. Patches of common bent, Agrostis tenuis, which is an important source of fodder in cultivated regions, is one such sign. The remains of hay-drying rack poles which can still be seen around the bog meadows of Vadvetjåkka delta are of a more recent vintage, however, having originated from earlier stationary Same settlement. There are also extensive system of caves in Mount Vadvetjåkka, with some scientific speleologic interests in the cave Vuoitaskallo, one of the largest cave of the nation, 155m.

4.2 Quality and importance

Vadvetjåkka comprises strongly limestone influenced vegetation ranging from the bare mountain covered by alpine heaths, lush mountainbirch forests of meadow type on the precipices down to a large delta at the lake Torneträsk. A site for Braya linearis and Primula scandinavica. Other important species motivated "other reason" are in general regional endangered
