A three-day long hike sleeping in huts
Hike in Muddus National Park and experience magical old forests, great wetlands and spectacular waterfalls. Muddus National Park was inaugurated in 1942 to protect the then almost extinct whooper swan. People have lived here for thousands of years side by side with the animals and nature, and if we look carefully we can still see traces of old hearths, forest fires and old-fashioned forestry. Even today, Muddus National Park is an important grassing area for reindeers and a popular place for wildlife such as moose, bear, grouse and capercaillie.
Muddus National Park is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Laponia and called one of the most silent place in Sweden. Even if it is only an hour outside Jokkmokk, you can often hike for hours without hearing any other sounds than the rustling of the trees and the rippling streams. In Muddus National Park, you’ll find some of the oldest pine threes in Sweden and they are full of hanging lichens that reindeer can eat if the winter becomes extra difficult. During our hike in Muddus National Park we spend the nights in huts along the trail and cook together over an open fire.
