Seiland national park was established in 2006 an covers 316 km2. It is located on one of the many remote islands on the west coast of Finnmark, Norway and is a very scenic place with its many fjords and steep mountain slopes ascending from the sea. Among the many high peaks, there are lush valleys and plains. Many mountain lakes litter the landscape and in the middle of the island lies the northernmost glacier on the European mainland. Rugged terrain makes getting around a challenging task, but the rewards are numerous for those who are willing to put in the effort.
