Fulufjällets National Park

Fulufjället National Park was established in 2002 and covers 385 km2 and is the largest national park in south Sweden. Here you find Sweden's highest waterfall of 93 meters and the world's oldest tree, which is over 9 550 years old! Njupeskär waterfall is 93 meters and thus Sweden's highest. The water falls freely 70 meters. The stream next to the fog case there are many rare mosses, lichens and vascular plants. Many of them require constant moisture to survive. The deep groove cut into the sandstone layers of the waterfall is a textbook example of reverse erosion. A few days around midsummer - at the summer solstice - the sun finds its way to the waterfall and gives it a magical blue light. But this occurs only in the morning between 3:00 to 5:00 am. The hikes on Fulufjället are well marked and the trail to the waterfall is a round trip of 4 km.
