Summer Fun

N

ow there is an opportunity to live in architect-designed camping, or as tradition would call it; “glamping” (glamourus camping). Situated on a mountain in the middle of Scandinavia’s most prominent wild reserve, with a fantastic view over one of the sanctuaries biggest lakes. – With glamping, we offer even more of a safari feeling and allow the guests to get even closer to nature and the sanctuaries abundant wildlife, says Per-Arne Olsson, CEO at Eriksberg Hotel & Nature Reserve, located 2,5 hours with car from Copenhagen. During the summer glamping was introduced. It is where Bertil Harström, who is the architect behind several Treehotels, has drawn the new camping tent, which is placed on a mountain as old as time. – Glamping fits Eriksberg like a glove. To go to sleep and wake up directly in nature creates memories for life. The glamping tent is made by hand from linen cloth and the interior is specially made to be unic and to fit into the concept. The inspiration for the tent comes from the tent used in the USA’s civil war, they are the same type. The military connection can be found within Eriksberg as well, through the well-preserved ramparts following the coastline. Eriksberg’s founder, the internationally known author, photographer and nature-conservator Bengt Berg, used similar tent forms for his tents when in Africa studying the hunting of big game. These tents are well preserved and a part of an exhibition in Eriksberg. SECLUDED NATURE LIVING

Another accommodation in the wildlife park is Lily Croft which lays secluded, with its very own oceanview. It is a 750 square meters hotel and conference villa that keeps a very high standard, and even higher security. –We turn to those who are looking for an experience of high quality and service. Those who want to be close to nature, says Per-Arne. Many of our visitors appreciate the calmness here, which does not exist in an ordinary day to day life. We also offer activities for those who wants to join in. Such as eagle safaris, walking safaris, wine tastings, raft safaris, clay pigeon shooting and bison walks. Seeing the sights close up is a fascinating nature experience. – Wisent is a European bison where the bull can weigh 900 kilos. They are endangered and as rare as tigers and black rihonos, Per-Arne Olsson concludes. Text: Editorial Photo: Eriksberg Hotel & Nature Reserve
