"Stora Sjöfallet National Park" Vietas by sim1
Vietas Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos
The National park was established 1909 to protect the waterfall and its lakes and to preserve the genuine high mountain terrain - the fjällen. The mountain areas around Stora Sjöfallet are very varied, with alpine ranges and low ridges, flat high plains and deeply carved valleys. The lake Akkajaure divides the park in a northern and southern part. The southern part doesn’t contain any trails or huts. Kungsleden - the 440 km long hiking trail from Abisko to Hemavan - passes through the northern part.
If you want more info about the park you can take a look at the parks website : Stora Sjöfallet National Park
I love the National Parks in Sweden and it is a dream of Åke and me to have visited all of them at some day. It won't be easy as not all of them are so easy to reach, but we want to give it a try anyway :-)
