Stay with the camel family
An experience beyond the ordinary!
Surrounded by the varying and majestic nature of Sørøya, you will experience something extraordinary. You will live in a newly renovated house with round windows, with a camel family as your company. You can feed the camels, spend time with them and go trekking with them. You will be invited to meals with the family, have some nice conversations around the campfire, felt your own camel wool slippers or paint the sceneries of Sørøysund on your canvas.
The tempting trekking terrain, local food, stories and discussion will complete the atmosphere created by the presence of the camels. Everything is done in an environmentally sustainable way. An experience for the whole family or a group of friends.
Day of arrival: You will be met by the pier. Accomodation and get-together supper.
Day 2: you will join the family’s daily activities with the camels: feeding, hanging out with the camels and training them. If the weather allows, we’ll go trekking with the camels, and have some lunch outside. You can participate in felting seat covers or slippers. A dinner with the family always has a local twist. There are lots of musical instruments in the house, you can feel free to use them. You can also watch the film KAMEL, if you haven’t seen it at the cinema.
Day 3: More cozy camel company, and on a good weather some trekking with them. If you’re still keen on hiking, there are a many options for outdoor people of all age groups; Sandfjellet (sand mountain), sand beaches, Kjøttvikvarden, mountain lakes, climbing the mountain tops and the road to Tarhalsen lighthouse. We’ll plan the hikes according to wishes.
Simple trekking food will be served during the hikes. Nature activities can be found for the whole family: collecting rocks, shells and driftwood, or how about painting a picture of the panoramic scenery of Sørøysund
You will be served a dinner with the family, and on a beautiful day will light the campfire in the backyard. Perhaps the weather gods allow a little walk under the midnight sun!
