Shelter

If you love the outdoors, you should definitely spend a night in one of our cosy shelters.

he camp site is situated in the middle of the park, close to brown bears, red deer and sea eagles. We have put together an exciting visit with both time on your own and with a guide. The guide will take you on a guided tour of the park, where you can learn more about all the fascinating animals.

Cozy shelters

The shelters are 12,5 m2 each and can normally fit a maximum of 8 people pr. shelter.

The openings face east, and most days the wind will come from west or southwest.

At the campsite you will find an outdoor kitchen with a table and chairs, and gear to cook you meal over a campfire.

Practical information

  • 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 something from The Loghouse Café. If you order from the café, you will still need to cook some of it 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.
