Wilderness in Norway and Europe
This map shows wilderness in Norway and Svalbard. For the Norway map wilderness is defined as areas more than 5 km from roads, railways, power lines and other major man-made changes/installations. The European map uses a different definition of wilderness with 6 km as the excluding distance. Also, areas smaller than 4000 km2 are excluded from the map.
