Stay two nights in a forest luxurious tent at Hinsen Wilderness Camp.

Hinsen Wilderness Camp consists of three comfy and large luxury tents, situated right by the shore of lake Hinsen in Dalarna. Each tent has hotel standard beds and bed linen, a small wood fired stove for cold nights, oil lanterns and wool blankets. All you need for a couple of cozy nights in the woods. We provide you with all the ingredients for meals that you cook prepare over open fire, and in the morning you will get a breakfast basket to the tent.

This is a true nature getaway. Take this chance to unplug and disconnect. Relax and recharge.

  • Chop fire wood and cook food over open fire

  • Go for hikes, canoe at the lake, use the sauna

  • Watch for Ospreys, Beavers and other wild animals

For who: This is an adventure for nature loving families, couples and friends who are looking to do something truly different and memorable together. You will have plenty of time to explore nature at your own pace. And if you travel with kids, they will LOVE it here!

Time to eat: You prepare your own meals over open fire, and we provide the outdoor cooking equipment that you need. There is a food shed where you find ingredients like pasta, tomato-sauce, bread, müsli, eggs, coffee, tea, juice, fresh vegetables, dried fruits, spices, pancake-mix and water. It will take a bit of time, but everything tastes so much better outdoors. Enjoy your meal by the camp fire!

Day 1: Welcome day and barbecue at the island

Arrive at Korså in the afternoon for a welcome session by the camp fire. Our host will let you know how everything works, where to fetch water, how to start a fire, how to sleep well in the forest and more. Then place your bags in your canoe go to your tent. We hope that you will feel like home.

Go for a hike, take a wild swim in the lake, go for a sauna or just rest by the campfire.

In the afternoon you are welcome to join our guides for a canoe trip across the lake. We will stop at one of our favorite islands and cook a dinner over open fire.

Watch the sunset and sleep well in your tent.

Day 2: Outdoor wellbeing

Wake up to birds song whenever you feel like getting up. Have a slow breakfast in the forest. We provide a basket.

Now you will have a whole day to explore the surrounding forest. You can go for a hike in the woods, explore the lake by canoe, relax at the sandy beach, go for a wild swim, go birdwatching, pick endless amounts of berries in season, mushrooms and edible plants, meditate among tall trees, chop firewood or just hang out by the camp fire with the others.

Our canadian style canoes are stable and safe and each fits two adults and two kids. Canoeing is the ideal way to explore the lake and the surrounding forest. Use our waterproof map where we have marked out some of the highlights of this lake called Hinsen. It is a relatively large, good enough for hours of paddling.
