In harmony with nature
Melkevoll Bretun is built in harmony with nature. You will find small and large terraces for tents and motorhomes, where you can find your own private area between stones and trees. Many give feedback that the way Melkevoll camp site is built and designed is an experience in itself! There is a lot of creative work behind the paths in the stone avalanche area, the vantage point, and not least the Stone Age cave that is found in the middle of the area. The campsite also has "Utelada", - inspired by the old building style for semi-outdoor living areas, with large dining tables, kitchen and barbecue areas. Here you can enjoy a good meal around the bonfire.
The reception is open daily throughout the main season, and has a small shop and café overlooking the river and glacier. Here we serve coffee, cakes and waffles and other things, and we have warm bread and rolls ready for those who wish in the mornings.

Mountain hikes
Melkevoll Bretun is the starting point for many beautiful mountain hikes. Here you will find trips for the experienced hikers, and also easier trips for those who seeks that, or those who wish to go with the whole family. Of the family-friendly hikes, we recommend Sætremarka close to the campsite, Briksdal glacier and Brenndal glacier.
With a starting point from Melkevoll you can go to Oldeskaret and Kattanakken. From Oldeskaret you can continue to Blåfjellet, or all the way to Stardalen if you have someone to pick up on the other side.
