Lavvu

Sleep in the center of the park in a lavvu, which is an authentic Saami tent.

The Saami people is an indigenous Scandinavian people. They are nomadic and drive their reindeer from grassland to grassland. When tired from walking all day, they make camp with big tipi-like tents. Such a tent is called a Lavvu, and you will find one in Scandinavian Wildlife Park. The camping site with the big tent is placed in the middle of the park, close to the playground, The Barn and the sea eagles.

Perfect for the big group

There’s room for about 30 people in the big tent. It’s about 8 meters high and the floor is 85 m2. Linoleum covers the floor so you will not be sleeping on the cold wet ground. There’s power and lamps in the tent, and there’s also 4 picnic tables.

NOTICE: You will need to bring camping gear yourself.

FAQ

  • Meals included

    Breakfast is included in your overnight stay, but the other meals are your own responsibility.

    You cook dinner yourself in the outdoor kitchens, on the barbecue or on the campfire. You can bring your own or order from The Loghouse Café. If you order from the café, you will need to do the final cooking yourself.

    See the options here

  • Cooking dinner

    It doesn’t matter if you bring your own food or you order from our café, you will need to do the final cooking on you own. You can cook the food on the grill/barbecue, over the campfire or in the primitive outdoor kitchen.

    We encourage our guests staying by the shelter to cook their food over the campfire, so you can stay close to the shelter and the outdoor kitchen.

  • Bring your own camping gear

    You will need to bring camping gear yourself. This means sleeping pads or air mattress, sleeping bags, head pillow and warm clothes.

    Follow our checklist

  • Transport of luggage

    Both campsite are situated in the middle of the park, and you will have to walk from you car to the campsite. We will loan you handcarts to transport your luggage, which you will need to return to the entrance upon departure.

    It’s not possible to transport luggage to the campsites by car.

  • Bathroom facilities

    There are restrooms in walking distance from both campsites.

    There’s no access to a shower.

  • Several groups in the park

    Several groups can book a sleepover in the park at once. However, there will only be one group per shelter and in our Saami tent/Lavvu at a time, so you will not need to share sleeping facilities.

    If there are several groups staying overnight in the park, they all share the guide. You can check the time schedule for either the Saami Tent or the Shelters to see when the guide spends time with you group.

    The groups staying in the three shelters share the facilities there. However, there is a site for a campfire and picnic table for each group.

  • Arrival and departure

    When you order an overnight stay in the park, you’re of course allowed to spend the whole two days of arrival and departure.

    Therefore, you can arrive the first day from the park opens at 10.00 and stay till the park closes the next day.

     

  • Access to the campsite

    In most cases you will have access to the campsite from the moment you arrive on the first day.

    The next day the shelter campsite need to be cleared and departed by 9.00 and the Saami tent campsite by 9.30, so the staff can clean the campsites before the park opens at 10.00.

  • Leaving the park after hours

    It’s not possible to leave the park from an overnight stay before 9.30 the next day. On rare occasions or with prior permission it may be possible. The whole park and the parking lot is locked during the night. The guide is busy with the groups staying overnight and will be hard-pressed to let people out during the evening.
