Tyresta National Park

Tyresta National Park

Experience a wilderness realm 20 km from Sweden´s capital city

Thick, knotty pines with centuries of growth bear witness to the passage of time. Barren flat rocks that ice sheets and waves have worn smooth, at a time when the area was still an archipelago. All beautifully framed by towering spruce trees that keep watch over mosses and lichens. The forest cover is interrupted by glittering lakes, and in the air is the scent of bog myrtle and marsh Labrador tea. Tyresta National Park is the largest area of ancient forest in the southern part of Sweden. The park is surrounded by Tyresta Nature Reserve, and together they contain 12,355 acres (5,000 hectares) with 55 km of walking trails. Welcome!
