Great adventures on your doorstep

Wake up after a peaceful night to the sound of birds twittering and pine trees whistling. Look forward to a morning swim and a tranquil breakfast. Raise your head and feel the fresh mountain air before getting on your bike, pushing the canoe into the water or fastening your skis. Step out of the daily grind at Fagernes Camping. Feel the closeness to nature. Live right by the rural town, right between Eastern and Western Norway, along Strandefjorden in beautiful Valdres.

Welcome to the friendliest campsite in Norway!
