The National Park Board manages the national park in a consistent manner, preserving natural and cultural assets in the park while ensuring that the area can be used for simple leisure activities and reindeer husbandry. The board is responsible for producing overarching plans for the park and maintaining regular contact with its users. The board’s authority derives from the Conservation Regulations and the Norwegian Nature Diversity Act, and the National Park Board issues permits for motor traffic, use of drones, construction activities or other licensable activities in the park.

The national park manager is the CEO and Secretariat for the National Park Board, and has an office in Alta.
