Information

Birkelund camping is an excellent and natural point of departure whether you want to climb, mountain bike, go on fishing trips or just want to go for relaxing walks in an unspoilt and breathtaking nature.
You can use Birkelund camping as a base for various tours by car, motorbike or bicycle.
Many of the guests spend their time fishing in the river (Storåni) where fish are abundant.
The best deep pool is only 500 m from the camping site.
Birkelund camping is situated in an ancient cultural landscape
telling you about old agricultural traditions and mountain dairy farming. You can still find mountain dairy farming along Fv.50
with large flocks of goats, and farms where you can buy the local brown cheese made of goat milk
and taste the different local traditional dishes made at the mountain dairy farm. In Hallingdal there are a lot of examples showing how houses where build and decorated in the old days.
In local museums or old private well-preserved farms, you’ll find old everyday objects decorated in an elaborated style, both painted and carved.
You can also enjoy winter sports in Hovet ( 3 km), Hol ( 3 km), Sudndalen (10 km), Geilo (15 km), Ål (25 km) and Gol (50 km).
You can experience all this and much more if you stay at Birkelund camping.
Dogs are, provided that they are on a lead, welcome on Birkelund camping.
Birkelund camping is open throughout the year.
