At Lystang Glamping you can rent one or more furnished canvas tents that are idyllically located with a west-facing view of Heddalsvatnet, which is part of the Telemark watercourse. Here there are frame mattresses, fan oven and wood stove in all tents, and the tents are warm, dry and super cozy no matter the weather!
This glamping place is located on Holtsås, approx. 15 min south of Notodden and 30 min from Bø in Telemark.
You can rent tents for 2-5 people. All with outdoor furniture and own barbecue. In addition you will also find a kitchen tent where all guests are free to pick up crockery and glasses (the employees do the dishes!) You can order charcoal, lighter fluid, oil and spices for NOK. 150. Free access around the clock to service house with shower / toilet.
In addition, there are 4 simple but cozy camping cabins for up to 6 people.
Since Lystang is glamping-not-camping, there are no motorhomes, caravans or private tents. Here there is a barbecue hut and two group tents for social gatherings and in addition a bathing jetty with easy access for small boats or private kayaks.
You can rent our rowing boat if you want to fish (we have life jackets) or borrow a log or board game. The atmosphere is absolutely magical when the glamping tents stand like luminous cones at sunset.

Distance to attractions
Telemark is a summer paradise for cyclists, hikers, families with children and those interested in history, music and culture. Here is varied nature with snow-capped peaks, spruce-clad fairy tales, wide fruit villages, lakes and canals. And many events and attractions in the summer. You can take the bike on one of the canal boats up the locks on the Telemark Canal, or walk on hiking trails and in the mountains. Bring the children to Bø Sommarland, or visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Notodden or Rjukan.
Or just relax outside the glamping tent with good food and drink and feel the holiday calm subside.
