About the Gränslandet project

This is an information project for the nine protected nature areas that we call "Gränslandet". The idea is to make it easier for you if you want to visit, or just want to find out more about Gränslandet. What is there to see and discover? Which regulations apply and how do they differ in the protected areas, and in the two countries? What should you think about in order to leave as few traces as possible from your visit to Gränslandet? Together, we can help preserve this valuable landscape for the future!

The county administrative boards in Jämtland and Dalarna run the project together with the county governors in Hedmark and Sør-Trøndelag. The project period is 2009–2011.

The four authorities are responsible for the administration and management of the area, and they have worked closely over a long period of time. The need for coordinated information about the opportunities for outdoor recreation and the rich natural and cultural assets in Gränslandet, was highlighted through this collaboration.

The aim is to achieve:

  • better opportunities for "close-to-nature" outdoor recreation and tourism in the area,
  • more information about the outdoor recreation qualities as well as the natural and cultural assets in the area,
  • less wear and tear and disturbances in the natural environment,
  • more respect and understanding for the reindeer husbandry in the area,
  • better understanding of protection, conservation and management of nature areas, and
  • increased cooperation between authorities responsible for nature conservation management in Norway and Sweden.

This website has been developed during 2011. At the same time, a joint leaflet was produced, and display stands and information signs were placed in 61 different locations in Gränslandet and at specific entrances.

Work was carried out through a cross-border Interreg project funded by the EU and nature conservation funds from the Norwegian and Swedish governments. After 2011, the four nature conservation management authorities will continue to work together regarding Gränslandet.
