Fulufjället National Park is a national park in central Sweden. Its total area is 385km2, located entirely within Älvdalen Municipality in the province of Dalarna. It is named after the mountain Fulufjället, 1044m high. It covers the Swedish part of the Fulufjället massif, which is the southernmost part of the Scandes in Sweden. The Norwegian part of the massif is protected by Norway's Fulufjellet National Park.Work out when and for how long to visit Fulufjallets National Park and other Sarna attractions using our handy Sarna trip itinerary app.
The park is one of Sweden's most recent, inaugurated in September 2002 by King Carl XVI Gustaf at a ceremony attended by a few thousand spectators. The park has become one of the initial PAN Parks, an international project to combine preservation with tourism.
The Fulufjället massif is a high plateau deeply gouged by several rivers that flow into the mighty river Dalälven, which, far downstream, creates the unique topography of Färnebofjärden National Park. The geography is dominated by lichen, bare mountains, and valleys with dense old-growth forest. The heaths of brush, grass and lichens are unique in the Scandinavian Mountains, a result of the absence of grazing reindeers.
The park is a notable location for several species of birds, as well as brown bears and Eurasian lynx. The bold Siberian jay is the park's symbol. Notable sights include Sweden's largest waterfall, Njupeskär, with a total height of 93m, and a free fall of 70m. Growing in the park is the Old Tjikko, one of the world's oldest trees.

Me and my friends went to Fulufjället for 3 days and it was really great. We went to Njupeskär, the highest waterfall in Sweden and hiked alot in the reserve. Make sure to check out naturum for some..... more »
We were very excited to visit this National Park, and the Njupeskär waterfall. We had planned on doing the loop trail that goes past the fall, but unfortunately the northern trail has been closed off.... more »
Beautiful park with some trails accessible for people with disabilities. Waterfall is quite a view! In general trail up to higher plateau of mountains are quite steep and rocky at parts of the trails.
Beautiful national park. We walked through this park on our way up to Norway. Enjoyed every day. Lot of cabins for over night stay, great views and beautiful nature and wild life. Ideal for little trekking holiday.
