“The height of fall at Nyfors between the lakes Tyresö Flaten and Albysjön is about 20 feet. Here in the beautiful rapids dippers can sometimes be spotted. Nyfors is Tyresö’s “gate” to Tyresta National Park and a good starting-point for both hiking and fishing.”

Tyresta National Park

A very nice place to visit near Stockholm.

Only 20 kilometres from the centre of Stockholm lies one of the most unspoilt areas of natural beauty in central Sweden – Tyresta National Park and Nature Reserve. The area is characterised by a rift valley landscape which is typical for central Sweden but unique in an international perspective.

The park extends over almost 5,000 hectares. It has been protected to preserve its exceptional natural values and to safeguard its importance for recreation. You can find primeval forest here with pine trees that are 400 years old, clear forest lakes and a large number of unusual plants and animals. You can also see broad-leaved deciduous woodland, open arable land and historical buildings of cultural interest.”
