At Sandviken Camping, bikers are always welcome to pitch a tent – or rent a cabin if the weather is on the grey side. Their sanitary facilities include a drying room for wet gear, a sauna, and warm cabins with made-up linens and towels included. Outside the cabin, there is a fire pit and seating, and they sell firewood from their own forest. Sandviken Camping is situated by the beautiful lake Tinnsjøen near Rjukan.

Preheated sauna, food and drinks

If you arrive in rainy weather, let them know in advance, and they will heat up the sauna barrel for you. During the summer months, the kitchen is open, offering food such as pizza and nachos, among other things. Sandviken Camping café also has a license to serve beer and wine. You can also preorder breakfast before you head out the next day.

Great ride to get there

If you plan to go to the Rjukan area and now have decided to stay at Sandviken, why not take the most interesting roads to get there? If you come from north, take road 755 over Imingfjell! It is recently paved and is a very beautiful, approx. 50 km long mountain road. If you arrive from east, ride up (or down) the scenic Numedalen along road 40 and take west when you reach Veggli. There is a great gravel road named Vegglifjellvegen over Vegglifjell.

In the area

Why not stay at the camp for a few days an do day trips to experience everything the national park municipality of Tinn and the surrounding area has to offer? A true moto experience is to ride around the entire Hardangervidda. Or ride the gravel mountain road from Kalhovd to Gvepseborg and back. Climb Gaustatoppen, Southern Norway’s highest mountain or ride the fantastic road Tuddalsvegen, passing Gaustatoppen mountain.  You can also learn about the exciting industrial and world war history at UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Rjukan. Why not visit Heddal Stave Church, Norway’s largest stave church, or cuddle with a cow at Håvardsrud Seterliv?
