Under no circumstances are minors allowed to live here without a guardian. The number of persons in the cottage may not exceed the specified number of beds.

Are pets allowed?

You can bring pets with you when you live on a camping pitch, but these must always be kept on leash. Pets are not allowed to stay on the sand beach, but are allowed on the grass beach. It is absolutely imperative that you pick up the waste after your pets. Most of our cottages are allergy-free and you are not allowed to bring pets, however there are cottages where pets are allowed for a fee of 90 kr per night. Please state if you bring pets at the time of booking!

Hafsten Resort was founded in 1955. Since its inception, the resort has been privately owned and operated by the Grytfors family. When Sixten & Clary started what was then called “Hafstens Camping”, there was only a simple kiosk building on the unique and scenic Hafstens Peninsula. During the more than 50 years that have passed, one of western Sweden’s leading leisure facilities has gradually gradually been developed here.

Today Ingela Grytfors is the driving force behind the development of Hafsten. Since 1990, Ingela has worked hard to make Hafsten into what it is today, a favorite destination for families and people, young and old.
