Fokstumyra nature reserve is in Dovre municipality, just north of Dombås. The nature reserve is listed under the Ramsar Convention, because of the importance the wetlands has for birds, both migratory birds and nesting birds. The area was listed in 1923 as a reaction of the negative effect the railway had on previous pristine nature. The listing was upgraded to a nature reserve in 1969. The area is dominated by marshes, and is located 940-960 meters above sea level, just below the tree line.

A path and watchtower has been built in the area. It is not permitted to walk outside of the path during the nesting season from 01.05 - 01.08.
