We meet our guide at naturum Fulufjället. After a short introduction we start the hike into Fulufjället National Park, a mountain located in the middle of Sweden. We follow the trail through the old growth forest and mire to Njupeskär – the highest waterfall of Sweden. After admiring the fantastic waterfall we will hike up to the plateau and enjoy the beautiful view. Up here we head to the oldest tree in the world. We will follow the trail over the mountain plateau and cross the creek that downstream forms the waterfall. Here we take a break and drink pure water from the creek and enjoy some bakery – the typical swedish fika. During the tour you have plenty of occasions to ask about the unique environment and the guide will point out many amazing details that an ordinary hiker easily would miss. Finally we descend from the plateau along the mountaion slopes and finish the excursion at naturum – where we started some hours before.
