To secure a distinctive and beautiful landscape in relation to Stabbursdalen national park, and to secure an area of the world's northernmost pine forest. Significant quaternary geology values helps to give the area its distinctive character.
Preserving the natural basis in the national park is important for the Sami culture and economic exploitation. The area can be used for reindeer husbandry, nature experience and performance of traditional and simple outdoor life with a small degree of technical facilitation. In addition, the special landscape area, along with Stabbursdalen national park, will help to preserve a coherent wilderness area that also contains many cultural monuments.
In Stabbursdalen the special landscape area is marked by human activity, both new and old. Trapping ditches and sites are examples of the latter. More visible are the current systems and fences attached to the reindeer husbandry. There are also roads and recreational cabins in the area.
The parking area by Lombola, which is located in the special landscape area, is a good starting point for visitors to both the special landscape area and the national park. From the parking lot there are marked trails to Rørkulpen, Stabbursfossen and the mountain Stuorra Biŋalvárr which gives a great view of Stabbursdalen from the top.
