The area was protected on the 17th of December 2004 to protect mountainous areas with ancient forests and varied wildlife. It covers 1 924 square kilometers. Lierne National Park was opened the same day, to the north east. 

Hiking, fishing and hunting in the national park:

The park has little to no marked trails, but is excellent for wilderness hiking, trout or char fishing and hunting. You need a fishing or hunting license to participate in such activities. Berrypicking is free for everyone.
