Going from south to north the principal groups are: the Munții Metaliferi (“Ore Mountains”) with the basaltic masses of the Detunata (1,148 metres (3,766 ft)) near Abrud; the Bihor Mountains, with romantic scenery and numerous caverns, with the highest peak the Cucurbăta Mare (1,843 metres (6,047 ft)); to the east of this group are the Muntele Mare (highest peak 1,820 metres (5,970 ft)), to the southwest of Cluj-Napoca; the northernmost chain is the Seș and Meseș Mountains.

Natural reserves included in the park: Izbucul de la Cotețul Dobreștilor (0,20 ha), Izbucul Mătișești (2 ha), Izbucul Tăuzului (1 ha), Coiba Mare Cave (0,50 ha), Avenul din Hoanca Urzicarului (1 ha), Scărișoara Cave (1 ha) and Ghețarul de la Vârtop (1 ha) in Alba county; Pietrele Galbenei(6,30 ha), Cetatea Rădesei Cave (20 ha), Poiana Florilor (1 ha), Platoul Carstic Padiș (39 ha), Valea Galbenei (70,50 ha), Valea Sighiștelului (412,60 ha), Vârful Biserica Moțului (3 ha), Platoul carstic Lumea Pierdută (39 ha), Cetățile Ponorului (14,90 ha), Ghețarul Focul Viu Cave (0,10 ha), Ciur Izbuc Cave (0,10 ha), Micula’s Cave (0,10 ha), Urşilor Cave (1 ha), Smeii de la Onceasa Cave (0,50 ha) and Cerbului Cave-Avenul cu Vacă (45 ha) in Bihor County; Molhașul Mare de la Izbuc (8 ha) in Cluj county.

The Apuseni Mountains, idiosyncratic due to their picturesque karst scenery, remarkable both for its surface and variety of forms. The karstic areas have a distinct morphology and hydrology, stemming from the rocks’ water solubility.

The karst’s key trait is the development of an underground hydrological network from which stems a plethora of terrestrial and underground microforms.
