Safety and rules
The purpose of the regulations is to protect the valuable nature in the National Park.
The trail to Njupeskär waterfall is a summer trail and can be very slippery in the winter. We do not recommend you to go down in the Njupeskär canyon during winter and spring, since there is a great risk of falling ice, rocks and avalanches.
Drones are very popular. However, they are forbidden in Fulufjället, since there is a general prohibition for flying below 600m in the National Park. You can seek dispensation from the regulations at Länsstyrelsen in Dalarna, but that is mainly given for research purposes. Please contact naturum Fulufjället for more information +46 10 225 0349 naturum.fulufjallet(a)lansstyrelsen.se
You are obliged to take your trash with you out of the National Park. When using our cabins, leave them nice and tidy.
You are not allowed to ride a bike in Fulufjället National Park.
Even if you are going on trails, we advise you to have a mountain map and compass, or GPS device when upon the mountain. (Don’t forget extra batteries.)
There is mobile phone coverage on the mountain, but it often can be weak and not reach the entire area. Usually the connection is better if you try calling from the top of a hill.
Beware that the weather changes rapidly. You will find the latest forecast in naturum or check out smhi.se or yr.no.
