The Right to Roam – joys and obligations
Everyone is welcome in Fulufjellet, but remember to take care of nature! Show consideration towards bird and animal life, and do not leave any traces behind. National parks are the jewels of Norwegian and Swedish nature. The protection helps to safeguard the landscape and the diversity of animals and plants. As a result, we can continue to experience the wonders of nature in the future.
You are nature’s guest when you visit the national park. The Right to Roam allows us to travel freely. Nevertheless, you are obligated to show consideration so that animals and plants are not harmed or disturbed. Leave nature the way you want to find it.
Welcome to Fulufjellet
Visitors are permitted to pitch a tent wherever they wish, apart from in Zone IV of the Swedish national park. Feel free to pick mushrooms, berries and common plants in Fulufjellet. Clean up after yourself and always take your trash home with you.
Keep to the trail in order to avoid wear and tear on the vegetation and disturbances to wildlife. The cairns are landmarks that help you
find your way. Building new cairns is not permitted as this may lead people astray. In addition, do not remove stones from old cairns. Many cairns are protected as cultural monuments and protected species of slow-growing lichen grow on them.
Visitors are not permitted to light campfires from 15 April to 15 September, but campfires are permitted in places where there is no obvious risk of the fire spreading. Preferably use dead twigs and branches found on the ground or firewood that you have brought yourself. Breaking off small twigs from trees is also permitted. In zone IV on the Swedish side of the border, visitors are only permitted to light a campfire in the designated areas with the firewood that is found there.
If you have a hunting/fishing license, you can hunt and fish in the Norwegian national park. On the Swedish side of the border, hunting is only permitted in zones II and III for hunting teams that have a permit issued by the landowner, and fishing is permitted in zone III.
Visitors are welcome to take their dogs on a trip. On the Norwegian side of the border, dogs must be kept on a leash between 1 April and 20 August. On the Swedish side, dogs must be kept on a leash all year round. Remember to bring your dog passport and vaccination card if you intend to cross the national border!
Going to the toilet
Visitors are permitted to go to the toilet while out in nature, but make sure to dig a hole of at least 15 cm and cover it over afterwards. If you are not tough enough to use moss, use biodegradable toilet paper or take the paper with you when you leave. Wet wipes and panty liners are not biodegradable and must never be left behind.
Trash must not be left in the national park or burnt. Visitors must take it with them when they leave and dispose of it properly. Feel free to pick up any trash that you find on your way.
Drones are not permitted in the national park.

Fulufjället is the first national park in Sweden where adaptation for visitors was included at an early stage of the park’s planning. Today, four zones have been established on the Swedish side of the border that provide guidelines for what is permitted and what is not. The zones also illustrate varying degrees of adaptation in the park. Unlike the management of Fulufjället in Sweden, there is no zoning on the Norwegian side.
