There are various trails for trekkers. A few lakes makes the scenery a bit various, since you see basically only trees, which provide a shelter against the sun in summer.
Forget the animals which you may be told, you see none.
In some trails there are QR COde with audioguide, but only in Swedish language.

We enjoy going out for a walk and love nature so we decided to check out this national park. This was the highlight of our vacation. Such a beautiful place! If you go by public transportation, please buy tickets with credit card through the mobile app or buy tickets in a Pressbyrån store. It's a long bus ride but would do it again for sure. We bought a map for the walking tour and took the yellow and red tour. The red tour is a lot of fun due to the difficulties (climbing over rocks, going under trees,..). If you like walking, go here and walk all day!!! The lakes were also gorgeous and nice for a swim!

We hadn't planned on staying in Tyresta, but as our other hiking plans changed, it was the closest place to get to from stockholm. It took us about an hour on the bus to Tyresta By, the stop right at the visitor centre & cafe, and was really easy using the public transport system (SL). The hiking is lovely and not very strenuous, passing through mostly forest and past lakes, although there are a few scrambly bits over the rocks. I believe there is a circular day walk that's very accessible (for pushchairs, wheelchairs). It was stunning to see the new greenery growing where previously there has been forest fires, and likewise to see marks on trees where beavers have been in action! We stayed in a wind shelter in the North West of the park on the first night, which was lovely, warm and quiet, with lots of other campers nearby. The cafe at the entrance was cery accommodating, allowing us to leave some heavy books there overnight. It also had charging points which were very handy! And BOTTOMLESS COFFEE. On the second night we made our way to a windshelter much closer to the park entrance (4km: 40mins walk), but this was busy so we slept without cover on a nearby flat part. It was actually a Friday night and the windshelter/camping area was very busy (with 12+ other people in total, in different groups), so we sat around sharing the campfire and protecting our food from the ducks which was very pleasant. The night was warm and fairly comfortable and the views in the morning over the lake were beautiful. I would say you could easily spend 3 days hiking and camping/staying in windshelters within this park, withiut challenge even if you haven't camped before, but watch out for busy times when the camping areas are busy!

The national park and nature reserve actually span areas in the municipalities of Haninge and Tyresö. The main buildings (museum, visitors' centre etc) are at Tyresta Village in Haninge (buss 807 or 809 from Gullmarsplan in central Stockholm.). If you follow part of the long-distance trail Sörmlandsleden for about 10 km you can get to Nyfors in Tyresö and catch a different bus back to civilisation (873 or 813) Or vice versa, of course!
There are lots of other shorter trails to follow - and a little café at Tyresta By if you didn't bring a picnic. Our favourite walk starts at Nyfors, to go round the area affected by the big forest fire in 1999. (Buy a map at Tyresta - or they may be available at the municipal offices or libraries in Tyresö or Haninge) Fascinating how the forest and stones were affected and are now recovering...

It was easy enough to get to Tyresta - catch the commuter train to Nynäshamn from Stockholm to Handen and then bus 834 to Tyresta. When I arrived though the usual bus terminal was closed and I missed the next bus to Tyresta, meaning I had to walk the last 3km to get to the park from the nearest bus stop. I went on a Monday, so be warned, everything is closed apart from the actual park - tourist information, cafes, restaurants, etc.

It was great to wander around beautiful forests past streams and frozen lakes and all within reach of Stockholm. There are areas to make a fire and picnic. There are lengthy and shorter, easier routes to walk or hike and most are well marked. Definitely worth a visit if you want to see pristine Swedish wilderness.

We took a day trip via train and bus to Tyresta and it was a wonderful day. We took a 7k walk/hike through woods, around a lake and past fields. It was just beautiful. Then, we visited the farm and had a hot chocolate and cake. It was well worth the trip! We left Stockholm at 9 and were back at 4 pm.

This was a nice and relaxing place to walk and have a picnic, or a fika! Some lovely views and the path was buggy friendly, the little one fell asleep along the path. Very peaceful. Nice little cafe at the end of the path (or start, depending which way round you go).

Beautiful nature close to Stockholm city.
I actually live close to Tyresta and likes to go there with friends to show them that I actually live with the forest around the corner.

I freqvently visit Tyresta nationalpark sometimes a couple of times a week. They offer a wide selection of marked paths. Everything from a 20min walk to allday hikes. There are paths suitable for people with babywagons to wheelchairs and there are more off track paths to take too. There are busses that takes you to Tyresta by where u can start almost all trails from. Tyresta by has a lot of farm animals and some smaller shops that are manily open duting the summer. But the café are open all year round except mondays.
The Tyresta by is more suitable for familys with children.
During the season you will find a lot of people running around in the forests looking for mushrooms and blueberrys.
I live it. Its beautiful and gives peace at mind just walking there. And if you are lucky you might see the elks and deers and beevers.

Situated south of Stockholm, this nationsl park is a must for lovers of nature, fresh air and wonderful lakes. You can take bus 807 from Gullmarsplan to Tyresta by (sometimes 807 and 834) or a car, since there is a parking lot. You can choose several walks: I really recommend the Virgin forest walk and the Bylsjöslingan walk, but there are others. Do not forget to bring food and drink with you, since the only place to eat is in Tyresta kyrkby, where you also can find the camping site. There is also a small shop and lovely old buildings in this village. Please allow at least 4 hours to visit this forest.
