The softly shaped and slightly hilly flower beds are characteristic of the area. Between the meadows are stony and block-rich hills with sparse tree and bush vegetation. In the eastern part of the reserve there are a couple of old fish ponds framed by lush deciduous forest. At the far end of the north, an oceans protrude into Hyttsjön, which occurred during the production period 1910-1925, when scurfs (stone remains after mining) were discharged into the lake. The reserve was formed to preserve the unusual and orchid-rich flora and that the Långban is of international interest in the presence of minerals. The area is part of the EU's valuable nature network, Natura 2000.
There are seven different orchid species in the reserve; Two leafs, guckusko, breasts, purple squash, green ball, virgin Marie keys and night violin. In addition to orchids, there are, among other things, virgins, meadow watch, gold wiva, underviolet and field gentiana and several unusual species in the county. Forestry, tibast and olvon are found in the bush layer.
Långban is one of the mineral richest places in the world. Museum and exhibitions.
Close by is also the beautiful nature reserve Tibergs udde with a unique flora.
