Five Star Camping in Norway


Bring your own caravan or mobile home, or rent a luxurious caravan or a high standard camping cabin. All is possible at the Hallingdal Holiday Park, which was admitted as member of Leading Campings Europe last year.

Children as well as adults may experience exiting activities at the Holiday Park in Hallingdal, north of Oslo, between Oslo and Bergen.

Sail past the trees
High over the ground and the Hallingdalselva river there are over 50 frames on poles with many trails of varying levels.  Mini trails for the little ones, extreme trails for the brave, and of course a great selection of happy medium options. This is a chance for the entire family to have a great time together!

Platform climbing
At Hallingkastet you can climb, run, slide and pull from platform to platform up to 11 metres above the ground. There is also a climbing net and Norway’s longest spiral slide. Playground appliances and jumping pillow on the ground.

Climb staggering heights with a climbing net, or get down using the shortcut: Norway’s longest spiral slide! Thrilling excitement and butterflies in your stomach – but everything is safe; Hallingkastet is designed in way so that you can never fall more than 1.5 meters. Moreover, a great variety of play equipment and a giant jumping pillow will be on ground level.

Giant Indoor Play Center
The biggest indoor play center between Oslo and Bergen! A 300 sqm indoor play area on several floors. Here you can spend whole days, and have so much fun that you almost start hoping for rain! When you are thirsty, go to Snakkbar! right next door, that serves food, drinks and coffee.

Hallingdal Animal Farm
With animals like rabbits, goats and many other “petting-animals”. During the high season you can try to drive a tractor or ride a pony. Open until the 19 August.

Make friends with Geir the Goat, Rabbit and all of Rabbits relatives and friends, the Chicken Brothers and their cousin Egg. Even an alpaca called Al. (Paca, of course) Here you can make new friends, some furry, some with feathers, some with udders and some in cages. At times you may even experience pony rides and tractor driving trips. Sometimes visitors get to witness new members of the farm being born – which certainly will give those watching a memory for life.

Activity trails
You can walk, run, bike, jump or hop along the river and watch the fish jump. Climb the embankment, or play hide and seek in the woods, wade in the river and find fun places and make good friends.

River promenade

A beautiful walk that could accommodate romantic moments – here there are benches where you can sunbathe and hold hands. Maybe romance will flourish again along the Hallingdal river banks?

Well-being center
The program offers various treatments and pampering for body and soul. Why not treat yourself to a little extra luxury this holiday?

Hallingtunet arena

If you want to, you can take part in creating entertainment for the other guests and yourself. On occasions exciting bands and artists perform there – and it will be party in the park!


Contact our activity leaders to take part in canoeing on the Stranda fjord. Here you can go fishing and learn paddling techniques. Suitable for the whole family – with a lifejacket.


You can fish in the river outside the cottages. But if you have a more serious interest for fishing, you may be advised on rivers and lakes with perch and trout. There is plenty of information at the front desk about the types of fish you can get in the region. Remember that fishing requires a fishing license. It can be purchased via SMS/text messaging.

Hallingdal Holiday Park is based on both traditional and modern architecture with inspiration from mountains, nature and the local culture.
