Area: 9,3 km²
The area is located just southeast of Skoganvarre, along the west side of Lakselv valley. The area contains east faced hillsides with flatter parties down to Čádjejohka and Savgŋojohka. Large parts of the area are covered by sediments.
In the hillside east of Jeaggejávri and south to Dápmutjohka the forest is dominated by crowberry pine forest and low pine forest. In the sides there are elements of lime demanding species and plant communities, and the forest can be characterized as
In the lower parts of the hillside the pine forest is compact and barely mixed with birch. In the fresh section of the crowberry pine forest and up toward the mountain the proportion of birch is greater. In the lush areas there are elements of grey alder. The pine forest is mostly very slow growing and old, registered with age up to 400 years. Relatively closely set trees still gives relatively modest dimensions, the majority of heights up to 11-15 m. Forest in the aging phase dominates.
South in the area between Čádjejohka and Savgŋojohka the pine forest is distinctly poor, mainly crowberry pine forest with transition to low pine forest. In a relatively narrow zone along the rivers and the edge of land there are a rich riparian zone, with dominance of birch and grey alder. Far to the south, especially in the block-rich parties farthest off the river, there are certain parties with primary forests with trees that have a breast height diameter of 55 cm.
Among the protection provisions that apply to Skoganvarre nature reserve, it is important to note the following:
Ca. 30 km south of Lakselv (E6) there is an exit to the south to Savgŋojohka (open in summer). There is an information board about the reserve.
