Description of Muddus National Park

Muddus National Park is a nature reserved in Norrbotten County of Sweden. It covers a total area of 493 sq km (191 sq mi).  Muddus National Park was originally found in 1942 and later its territory was extended in 1984. While the rest of Europe was fighting World War II Sweden enjoyed its relative neutrality and peace.

 

Muddus National Park is most famous for its untouched primeval forest of large pines that are hundreds of years old. One of the pines was found to be at least 710 years of age. These forests managed to survive this long due to sparsely populated density of human settlements that lived here. The last residents left local village in 1909. One of the most popular sites in Muddus National Park is Muddusjokks Waterfall, the tallest within boundaries of the park.

 

Keep in mind that visiting Muddus National Park might be tricky at times. It is one of the wettest regions of Sweden and you can expect rainy days quiet often in the summer months. So plan accordingly.
