Fulufjället National Park is a beautiful place! I had a great day hiking here and I would love to go back to make a longer trip through the park. It is actually a very 'new' National Park in Sweden, it got its status only last year in the spring of 2002. But wow, it deserves it!
Fulufjället National Park is one of the few areas in Southern Sweden that has been unspoilt by exploitation. Fulufjäll is not a typical mountain range, but actually a plateau, 35 km long and 15 km wide plateau at a height of 1,000 m. The plateau is surrounded by steep slopes and narrow ravines. The Njupeskär waterfall is in the north east of the park and it was in this part of the park that I hiked.
You'll be amazed how calm it is though, once you get away from the waterfall. It is so quiet, so tranquil. To me it was just amazing. I had only one day to hike here, but I could easily have stayed much longer. And I know I will be back here to do a longer hiking trip, and discover this gorgeous area for several days.
If you want more info about the park you can take a look at the parks website : Fulufjället 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 :-) Here is a list of all National Parks in Sweden. The links are clickable so you can surf to all my National Park pages.

Interesting points :
* Waterfall Njupeskär, the highest waterfall in Sweden
* Bare mountain heights covered in "reindeer moss"

- In a nutshell:Beautiful, explore the park, not only see the famous waterfall
