Description

Njupeskär waterfall is 93 meters and is one of 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.

There are nice marked trails that take you up to Sweden's highest waterfall, trails through marshes, old forests and into one of the gorges found along Fulufjället. Here Njupeskär cuts into the rock and falls today 93 meters down to the bottom of the ravine. The trails are wellmarked and along it are informational signs. At the beginning / end is the opportunity to visit Fulufjället Visitor Centre "naturum" - an opportunity to explore the park further!

A few days around midsummer - the summer solstice - the sun finds its way in the back to the waterfall and gives it a magical blue light. But this occurs only in the morning between 3:00 a.m. to 5:00.

It's about 2 km hike single way to the waterfall.
