Muddus/Muttos National Park often is described with words like magical, myth-enshrouded and mystical.
Something about the national park has engendered a flowering of tales and legends. In 2014 all of the cabins in the national park will be furnished with folders containing these stories, which deal with everything from shamans to practical life in the marsh and forest.
Good to know before your visit
A visit to Muddus/Muttos National Park suits both visitors who want to make short day trips and those who want to spend a longer time here. The cabins are open year-round and have self-catering with basic but comfortable living standards. You cut wood yourself, build fires, fetch water, prepare food, wash dishes and clean up. In the national park there are five open cabins. There also are several rest areas and Sami huts in which visitors can stay.
Silent primeval forest
Muddus/Muttos National Park is one of the quietest places in Sweden. Researchers who have measured the sound level have shown that this and similar primeval forest areas are quieter than all other kinds of nature. During the March 15-July 31 period, the central parts of the national park are off limits because that area is a bird sanctuary.
The cabins are managed by Laponiatjuottjudus, the local management organisation.
