  • Description


    Hej, we are David (37 almost) and Yvette (35) and we moved in June 2021 to Kallsedet with our 1 year old daughter and Rhodesian Ridgeback Banjer. We come from the Netherlands. We have a campsite for the summer here, also with stugor and group accommodation. There is lake and mountain view, fishing possibilities in "our" lake Juvuln, winter activities and a lot of hiking, biking and wildlife. A lot to handle by ourselves so we could use some help in the private lifestyle! In wintertime we have Dutch groups coming over.

    What else ...

    We live in Kallsedet. Yes, we are a bit in the outskirt. If you like nature and silence, being outside, wildlife, northern light, take a dive into the lake, make a fire, spot beavers, moose, deers, birds, fish, pick berrys et cetera et cetera, then please come and join us! We live at the lake, with view on the mountains. And in summertime there are guests on the campsite, so never a dull moment. We have a small shop at the campsite and a lunchroom. With your help, we hope to have some time for seasonal and Swedish cakes & kaka (FIKA) and homemade sandwiches.

    Järpen is on 67 kilometers and has a service like bank/medical care, railwaystation. Åre is a bit further and you can do some MTB there and wintersport in the winter. Östersund (with the biggest cityarea, hospital and shoppingmalls etc) is a 2 hours drive away.

    There's a bus going to Järpen /Östersund in the morning, coming back in the evening (holidaytimes monday , wednesday and friday).
