Things to do when visiting Kerstin’s camping

If you want to get active at the campsite, you can challenge each other to a game of mini-golf, or take a nice walk or run on our exercise trail in the forest next door. It is an easy way to experience nature, which is always close at hand here at Kerstins.

Or why not, together with the children, combine a morning at the playground with a breakfast-picnic in the grass? Take the opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of the relaxing farmlike atmosphere.

Every now and then, it can be nice to let the mobile home/car be and take a bike ride to explore the surroundings. We rent out both adult and youth bikes, helmets and child seat are available to borrow.

Later on, when the evening comes and it’s time to unwind after all the activities of the day, it is always nice to come together and enjoy each others company by our barbecue area.
