Comfortable camping by the bank of the river Granaelva in beautiful Snåsa.
“Glamping” is a new trend, which also is gaining some interest in Norway. This word construction is made by merging the two words “glamorous” and “camping”. It means luxurious camping, which combines the simple camping life with some style and comfort normally found in hotels or other more glamorous accomodations.
Here you may spend some holiday time in the nature in the middle of the forest on the bank of the river Granaelva near the outlet to the lake Snåsavatnet in a simple but comfortable cabin. This will be a most special holiday experience with lot of wilderness feel and still not far from civilization.
About the cabin:
This is a small cabin with a capacity for up to 4 people, which is tastefully decorated and connectet with a refurbished camper van. Both units are connected to a huge veranda with a splendid river and forest view. There is a simple field wash basin, and a camping toilet on the premises as well as cookin utensils and a gas stove.
Aside from an occasional visit from the cattle herd on the nearby pasture on their way to drink from the river, you are separated from civlilization. Still, the farm is only a 10 minute hike away.
