Fulufjället National Park

  • A car is almost a must

    Fulufjället National Park Transportation

    This is far from the nearest bus stop. Your best bet is to drive to Särna (which you CAN reach by local bus) and north of it, follow the road to Mörkret. It is around 6 kilometres between Särna and the park so if you plan to hike, a taxi is viable. If you check with Dalatrafiken, you might also be able to arrange taxi transport through them as you...

    Take a tour of the workshop where Dala horses are produced.

    Särna Things to Do

    The forests around Sarna are amazing: the colours of the various kinds of moss vary from white through green to brown. The moss is too soft to walk on so you must keep to the paths. There are many edible mushrooms - I wonder why Swedish people don't pick and cook or fry them. There are some benches in the forest with half-covers over them, so you...
