A few kilometers from Varberg’s city center, on the picturesque peninsula with the sea on one side and the quiet nature on the other, is Getterön’s campsite. Here you can stay in your own caravan or tent on a camping site, with a mobile home on a mobile home site or rent a cabin.
Getterön, a peninsula surrounded by lovely bays
The road here winds past the nature reserve, the marina and the airfield and then ends in the small community. With five lovely bays lined along the rocks, even the journey here is beautiful!
Once there, there are activities for the whole family. Children’s club, Yoga, mini-golf, boules court, sauna, gym, games room and a jumping pillow. At the campsite, you can rent a bike if you want to experience Halland’s nature along the Kattegatt trail. For those who prefer to experience nature on foot, we can recommend the Hallandsleden or hiking in the Getterön nature reserve. The peninsula on which the campsite is located consists of rocks, stands and meadows. The five different bays offer fantastic bathing from the cliffs, jetties and sandy beaches.
Boat or bicycle to Varberg’s center and other excursions
It is about 4 km to the center of Varberg. From Getterön, you can take the Getterö boats from the harbor into Varberg’s harbor, a trip of about 10 minutes. Otherwise, cycling is fine as there is a cycle path all the way into town. Inside Varberg there are, among other things, close-to-town baths, the ancient fortress, shops and restaurants.
Naturum is located on the edge of Getterön’s nature reserve. Here you can find information about the animals, plants, geology and cultural history that shaped the area around Getterön. Behind the Naturum is the Getterön bird reserve with thousands of different birds. They offer guided tours, lectures, a shop and a cafe with a fantastic view of the area. This is only 2 km from Getteröns Camping.
Another tip when you stay at the campsite is to visit Getterön’s fish & smokehouse. It is both a restaurant and shop located in the middle of the peninsula. Here they smoke their fish themselves and sell them in their shop. They also sell homemade mixes, sauces, seafood and takeaway food. They also have alcohol rights and are a very popular lunch spot for the campsite’s guests.
