The Jeseníky PLA is spread out in the very northern part of Moravia and the Czech part of Silesia and on the frontier between the Moravia-Silesia and Olomouc regions and in the Bruntál, Jeseník and Šumperk districts.
The area includes Hrubý Jeseníka and adjacent parts of Hanušovická and Zlatohorská uplands. The relief corresponds to broken mountainous landscape with deep valleys and gradually rounded peaks. From a geological point of view the area is constituted mostly of acid rocks with few nutrients. The dominant soil type is cambisol podsol with mainly humus-ferruginous podsol in high-altitude localities, which is waterlogged and boggy in some parts.
Vegetation is represented by herbaceous-rich and acid mountain beech forests, in high-altitude localities indigenous spruce, alpine coenosis and raised bogs dominate. Dwarf pine is not one of the indigenous woody species and does not occur here. This is one cause of the immensely rich biodiversity of some localities in the alpine zone. The area contains the richest botanical locality in the Czech Republic, Velká Kotlina, which has about and it has about 450 plant super-species.
The climate is quite cold. The high-altitude locality is one of the coldest in the Czech Republic (on Praděd peak there is annual precipitation 1440 mm and an average temperature 0.9°C). Anemographic systems are a significant feature and had a significant effect on the emergence of glacial cirque and on its flora diversity.
