Where to stay
There are several places to stay in Bjørke. One of the hostels provides camping options as well (for tents and caravans/campervans). There is also a family-friendly camping option at the old farm Bakketunet, for tents mainly – but get in touch with them if you are thinking of bringing a caravan or campervan. Those who do not have their own car should definitely try to stay in one of these hostels or at the farm. For those of you who have got cars and could live 15 mins drive away we will also list some other alternatives (hotel, self-service apartments, camping, cabins).
It’s recommended to arrive on the Friday so you can join the welcome party on the Friday! We organise transport Friday and Monday (not on other days).
PS: If everything below gets fully booked, we’ll always find a solution 🙂
