Alan Rogers Review

In a delightful setting with fine views, Harstad Camping has space for 120 units as it slopes down to Vågsfjorden with on-site fishing and boating. This well established, popular site near Harstad, provides an excellent base on Hinnøya, the largest island in Norway. The 80 touring pitches are unmarked but a flat area by the water’s edge provides most of the site’s 46 electricity hook-ups (16A). These pitches are sought after and a mid afternoon arrival may gain a level pitch with electricity. This site is ideal for those looking for a scenic view and a bustling town nearby with a variety of activities on offer.

A small island very close to the site plays host to a colony of arctic tern. Catches of fish from the shore are not prolific, although hiring one of the site’s boats (rowing or motor) will soon transport you to nearby areas where you are likely to catch good sized cod. The site also has 15 cabins to rent. Harstad is known for its quality restaurants and cultural events, with the annual North Norwegian Festival of Culture in June being one such example. It also hosts Grottebadet, Northern Norway’s greatest waterpark situated inside a mountain with tropical weather all year.
