Pluscamp Geitvågen Camping
"When the summer day is over the country and you and I have found us a beach ...".
For the Bodø islands, the beach, at least one of them, lies in Geitvågen. Here, a natural lagoon (with a little help) has formed a large saltwater pool that always offers brilliant bathing temperatures, even when summer is "raining". Bodø's traditional bathing, excursion and camping site is located about 10 km from Bodø city center, on the road to Kjerringøy. Here, tourists can spend the night in small camping cabins, rent a caravan and caravan space or set up tents in the idyllic area - just off the spectacular 18 hole golf course of Salten Golf Club.
The campsite has the address Midnight Sun - and the name meets. Ever since the 1950s, residents and visitors to Bodø have found their way here on hot summer days - and still, Goatvågen draws us to the north of the city to camp, swim, hike, see and be seen or just sit on the mountains and enjoy the midnight sun and bright summer nights.
From the main road (rv 834) you drive down the natural avenue, with a municipal parking lot on the right and the newly established caravan park on the left. At the bottom of the area you will find camping cabins, reception and service buildings to the left, and to the right is the large plain and salt water pool. Here are playground equipment, benches, space for ball games and plenty of space for day tents, sunbeds, blankets and picnics.
Along the shells-white roads in the area, you always meet celebrities and smiling bodybuilders. The pool is divided by a bridge that leads to the other side - for those looking for a more sheltered area - and several campfire sites are established here. A walled dam, popularly called the "wall" forms the end of the pool. This area with sunbeds, outdoor showers and diving boards has always been the domain of the undoms and still the city's young people agree to "meet on the wall" on hot summer days.
From the summer of 2020, Goatvågen is facing major changes as new drivers will further exploit the potential of the scenic area and create an adventure center in natural surroundings, designed to promote health, wellness and sustainability. In this process, the campsite has been upgraded by moving caravans and cars away from the plain. The cabins and service building have been upgraded and a new food, drink and service offering has been established in collaboration with Skagen Hotel. The entire area will receive a preliminary facelift while the great work continues.
This year, we want to fortify Geitvågen as the center of summer in Bodø and will, within the rules for infection control, arrange offers, activities and events for young and old, throughout the summer.
We have a number of tent pitches, most of which have the opportunity to connect to electricity.
We have reserved some of our best places for motorhomes. These are located in the View area and as the name suggests they have fantastic views of the sea. In addition, we have Ny-sletta, where most of our places are.
We have a number of places for caravans on Ny-sletta. Here are sheltered places with electricity, which makes for a pleasant stay in Geitvågen.
The cabins are of the older type, but renovated with newer furniture and fixtures from 2020 so that they look modernized. Two cabins have in-water with shower / toilet and kitchen. The other cabins have no water and are of a simple standard, but cozy inside. All cabins will be replaced with new ones from 2021.
We have a number of cabins for rent, with both 2 and 4 beds. The cabins come in 4 categories:
- Large cabins with shower and WC and 4 beds
- Large cabins with 4 beds
- Smaller cabins with 4 beds
- Smaller cabins with 2 beds
