Store Mosse National Park

Store Mosse is the largest peatland region south of Lapland. Although situated in southern Sweden, it provides a habitat for animal and plant species typical of the country’s northerly regions. Lake Kävsjön is known for its bird life. In the post glacial era, Lake Fornoholmen occupied what is now the bog area. It dried up 8000 years ago, and its wide sandy bottom was exposed. Later, a more humid climate caused peat deposits to accumulate to a depth of between 3 and 7 m.
