Hamra National Park and Pilkalampinoppi

Hamra National Park


Hamra National Park is widely known for it's beauty and biodiversity. Here exist species that have vanished over almost all Scandinavia. The most impressing feature of Hamra National Park is the age of its trees and the rich life of polypores, lichens, mosses and insects that are dependant on old forests.
