1. Tyresta for Beginners

  Mainpage Next

Tyresta National Park is only some 20 km south-east of Stockholm, and consists of primeval forest that somehow has largely remained untouched through the centuries. There is lot of old mountain that sometimes sticks up through the soil (more about that later), and fir and pine dominate. But there are also pockets of wetter ground, and the small meadow we see behind the trees is probably a small swamp.
