Fulufjället is Sweden’s southernmost fells national park. The major attraction is Njupeskär, the tallest waterfall in the country with its 93 metres. The national park tempts with dramatic scenery and excellent habitats for dippers, grey wagtails and the largest falcon in the world, the gerfalcon.
A walk to Njupeskär will take you across bogs, through magic ancient spruce forests and light arctic birch-tree forests. On Mount Fulufjället lives the oldest tree in the world and there are also traces of the most dramatic rainstorm in one thousand years.
Those who wish to explore the national park thoroughly will find as much as 140 km of marked hiking trails, six cabins for overnight stays and ten resting shelters. The various organisers may guide you to the best fishing waters or on elk or beaver safaris as well as bird-watching.
In the winter you can go dog-sledding or snowmobiling, try kite-surfing or snowshoe walking. Expert climbers can have a go at Njupeskär’s ice sheet.
Before setting off to explore the national park, a visit to Naturum Fulufjället is well-invested time. Here are exhibitions and information on the flora and fauna. This is also the starting point for the guided tours with knowledgeable staff in place.
