The Natural Escape for Vagabonds of the Northern Trail...
right on lake-snåsa of mid-norway
Exposed to the spectacle of the Northern Trail, you may want to slip into a more comforting scenery like the;
'VAGABONDS SANCTUARIUM of GREATER OLDERNÆS'
Escape the squared boredom of modernity on our, beyond ordinary, lakeside CAMP SPOTS or oldtime rental CABINS, -wich will supply new energy of wild contemplative nature.
Acquiring the 'VAGABONDS DAYPASS to OLDERNES' will give access to all our basic nessesities for jolly living and some quite exclusive privileges;
Rustic, authentic, independent, -carefully maintained by the Ona-Hauffen family. And; Wir Sprechen Deutsch! (Norwegian too, actually. We are just too lazy to keep several language sides going, when its so much fun outside)
This is Oldernes Strandcamp and subdivisions
Off main roads... Out of time... out left of your world...!
We shamelessly bring you some customers reviews selected from google maps. Two of cosmic dimensions and one to balance it all. Rightful or not, it inspired us to spend our savings on a new streamlined sanitary section, (with hand alcohol) due to open in the beginning of july!

We arrived in this paradise completely by chance and wished we had never left it again. It is an absolutely magical place, full of history, maintained with simplicity and taste by the pretty little family who live there. There is a very singular, gentle and at the same time enchanting atmosphere, it is both a fantastic space of discovery for children and a source of wonder for nature lovers. In particular, do not miss the house of the German grandfather, a fishing and hunting fanatic, preserved in its original condition, a real Ali Baba's cave, and the old steamboat stopover transformed into a small holiday home. Both can be rented at more than reasonable prices. It is also possible to camp in front of the lake and build fires.
I very much hope that I will one day be able to return to this haven of peace, learn more about the mysterious history of this place, help in the garden, make jams, fish for trout, etc etc!
Not to be missed if you pass by there (and even if you don't!).

I came to this place by chance to spend one night, and the atmosphere that is breathed there made me modify my trip through Norway to be able to return to this place and enjoy it for a couple of days. It is a Camping in a forest that makes you feel in another world. It is a place not to go out. You can use the boats that the family has to row around the lake and also fish if you feel like it, everything is there ready to be used. It has several trekking routes to explore the forest that the family cares for (which is not little) and thus also discover its most remote beaches. Everything is perfectly explained in the map that they give you when you arrive. They give you everything you need to make a fire and help you in everything you need, since it is run by an incredible family.
Without a doubt I hope to return !!

Stayed here one night in a tent. Extremely primitive place. Unhygienic toilet facilities (outdoor toilet), and running water only where you can do the dishes. Have paid the same at other campsites with far better conditions. Idyllic place, but by all means bring your own hand alcohol!

Beeing inhabited by hunters and fishermen since viking ages, Oldernæs was acquired in 1912 by the german hunter, outdoor pioneer, author and magnat OTTO SCHULZ (1857-1935) and used as his summer residence. -His perfect base camp for exploration of the vast Snåsa wilderness, as he mostly did by foot. Exhausted and satisfied he chilled out on his own 10 kilometers of Oldernæs shoreline, seeking a catch on this rich angling spot. A place where time is slowly counted in trout wakes, -where the moose cries against the sunset and the mosquito reminds you that you are not dreaming...
