Lars Monsen has once again featured Femundsmarka and we like to talk about camping, so why not combine the two? Nature focuses summer and winter - Fæmund II operates during the summer of Femunden, and you have a sunbathing deck on the deck, you have the venue for nature experiences. Maybe a family contest in ice fishing can be cool? Or is kiting your thing? Then the femundis is the right place! There is so much to find that you simply have to look at Båtstø Camping to let you inspire ...
Come and enjoy the silence and nice scenery where the road ends on the east side of Femunden. Stay in one of our cottages which have been old farm house or stay in your own caravan or tent entirely on the shores of Lake Femunden.
You can go fishing, go hiking in the mountains or the woods. You can go cycling on one of the quiet forest roads in the area, or you can just relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of sea and mountains. Want to go on a trip even further into the wilderness, you can take the ferry Fæmund ll to Haugen or Røa and go fishing in the numerous lakes in Femundsmarka National Park. Ca 2 mil south of Elgå visit Gutulia National Park where you can hike through pristine primeval forest or eating waffle on the old farm.
Nordre Båtstø is one of the oldest farms in Elgå Vika. Here it became permanent settlement around 1750. Nature has always been rich in fish and wildlife so that this has been a great resource for the population. There was little farms around the week, and here at Båtstø there was cow, goat, sheep, horse and hens all the way up to about 1970.
After that, traditional farming was laid down and we found out that we would share some of our magnificent nature with others who wanted to come here to experience silence and recreation. Several of the old houses belonging to the farm were able to make simple cabins that were located in the woods with a nice view of the sea and mountains. Here many have found their way over the years. New friendships have been linked across nationalities and many have been regular guests here for 25 - 30 years. Europeans appreciate coming to an area where there is unspoilt nature and plenty of space.
We currently have 7 rental cabins. Everyone has power, but nobody has water. There are sanitary facilities with shower and washing facilities. Washing machine and dishwasher.
We also have an old seats approximately 12 km south of Elgå that can be rented out.
