Tessungdalen is a valley on the edge of the great plateau of Norway, Hardangervidda, and is for me what I call home. My family has lived and ran a woodland farm here for centuries, and now I would like to invite everyone to come and enjoy this wonderful place.
My name is Isaac and with loads of help from family and friends, I am building a place to experience the Norwegian nature in an authentic, simple and inexpensive way. The goal is to make a great place to camp, hang out and do different projects along the untouched river Tessungåe.
The idea is to develop small living spaces in tents, cabins and treehouses. The outdoor facilities are shared, and in the years to come there will be built a sauna, several bathtubs and an outdoor kitchen. It’s a place to take a break from the everyday life and meet new people. There is a range of possibilities to explore nature, do exciting sports like kayaking and kiting, and there are incredible fishing and skiing spots.
The camps first year has now passed. The year has involved building a bio- toilet, refurbishing the barn and developing ideas for the future. It’s been an inspiring year; the atmosphere around the campfire has been amazing and this is thanks to all the great people who have visited. If you are around and want to see what’s going on, you’re very welcome to come by next season, or book a stay!
The easiest way to get to the camp is by car, but it's also possible to travel by buss, or it can be a part of a hike over Hardangervidda.
Take the Rjukanexpress to Austbygde, from Austbygde it's possible to arrange transport - or its no more than 15 km hike/bike ride up the road.
If you are walking on the Hardangervidda plateau, you can quite easily walk to Kongsbergseter and continue down the road to the camp.
Drive to Austbygde and continue up the valley for about 15 km, and you will see a camp sign on the barn by the road.
I do believe high fives are better than likes. If you want to really see what’s going on, come and visit! Nevertheless, please follow us, and I will do my best to keep you in the loop!
