Site description
This site comprises the delta of the Rapaälvens river and Lake Laidaure, into which the delta is gradually expanding from the west. To the south is Sarek National Park, and to the north a zone of coniferous forest.

Key biodiversity
The delta becomes ice-free early in the spring and is consequently an important staging area for migrants.
