Go camping on a playground

“You will find a large amount of family-oriented camping sites in Norway”,
says the expert who works with the classification of camping grounds.

Norway is known for its well-developed camping sites that are eager to meet the needs of everyone. Jan-Henrik Larsen is the head of NHO Reiseliv, an organisation that amongst other things works with the classification of such camping sites.

The places mentioned below are some of the numerous sites in the guide, and should be regarded as hints to get you started on the planning of your trip. Most of them are also found in the listings of Norsk bobil- og caravanklubb (the Norwegian association for motorhomes and caravans).

Along your route in Norway there will be plenty of other camping sites that have made similar efforts.
