Njupeskär Sweden's highest waterfall?
Njupeskär is 93 metres high with a free fall of 70 metres. But does that make it the highest waterfall in Sweden?
About the activity
With 70 metres it is the highest free fall in Sweden!
When you measure the hight of a waterfall you also count the small streams and falls directly before and after the main fall - and then, Njupeskär is in fact NOT the highest waterfall in Sweden. And if we look across the border to Norway, they have 10 of the worlds 30 highest waterfalls!
The sound of great volumes of water crashing down is almost deafening, and the falling water creates a thick fog that a large number of unusual mosses and lichens like.
It is easy to walk to Njupeskär during the summer, all you need is jogging shoes. The trail has gravel and wooden trails and parts of it can be done with stroller or wheelchair. Please ask the staff at naturum, the visitor center, if you have any questions. The trail is a bit steep at places.
At the main entrance, there is a café and lunch facility. For larger groups the menu can be adapted. For example, game dishes or other choices can be ordered to suit your wishes. A boxed lunch to take with you on a tour can also be ordered. Orders should be placed no later that 1 week in advance by telephone. Note: Open only during the summer, June - September.
