Accommodation

The information below represents all kinds of possible alternatives around Sandman and his friends. The four alternatives might function in different ways, but they all have one thing in common: they all operate from the Accommodation Office, located in the Folkets Hus Area. At certain times, the accommodation office might very well relocate into other areas where the alternatives are physically located; for instance, the General Accommodation Office has a temporary location in the School Area only on Saturdays et cetera. Further details will be available later on.

GENERAL ACCOMMODATION

General Accommodation is the most common choice and is also the most wallet-friendly alternative. There are five different locations (the School, the Gymnasium, the School Area Camping Ground (large HDC-tents), the Marina and Malmen Sports Ground), and they are all equipped with bunk beds, duvets and pillows (at all time, please bring your own bottom sheet, top sheet, pillow case and towel at all times). They all come with access to toilets and showers, but have different locations and different room sizes to offer.

The General Accommodation alternative is primarily for guests taking classes or enjoying party passes during any given week; general visitors can only be offered space once all class takers and party pass holders have checked in. The General Accommodation alternative consists of both traditional indoor rooms (school rooms, gymnasium et cetera), as well as outdoor sleeping tents with six bunk beds in each complete with floors, heat, ventilation et cetera. The indoor alternatives are primarily for dancers following the different dance class programs, while the tent alternatives are primarily for party pass dancers. Both of these alternatives should preferably be booked in advance alongside general registration; if beds are still vacant once in Herräng, those will be available on a first come first served basis. If you end up on a waiting list for classes, please be aware that it won't be possible to book the General Accommodation until you have been taken off the waiting list with a place in a programme.

Reservation: please choose this option on My Herräng when registering for a course or a party pass.
Cost: SEK 700 per week.

PRIVATE ACCOMMODATION

Many of the local inhabitants of Herräng rent out rooms, cottages, apartments, houses et cetera while the camp is on. The alternatives are all different and are all possible to find and book through your My Herräng account. Private accommodation reservations for 2022 will open mid-April. Please note that all bookings should be made via My Herräng; no bookings can be performed by contacting us over our general email address. Please also read the general information carefully when booking your private accommodation, as well any specific information regarding the alternative you want to book. If any possible question marks remain, please contact us at accommodation@herrang.com.

Cost: varying.

CARAVAN CAMPING ACCOMMODATION

Please bring your private caravan and all necessary accessories. Herräng offers two main geographical alternatives for caravan camping: the camping ground at the School Area and the camping areas around Malmen Sports Ground. The first one is located more or less in the middle of where the action is, while the second one has a location in the outskirts of the village, some 300 metres south-east of the School Area. Both alternatives are equipped with electricity for a fee and have bathrooms and showers in the general vicinity. Depending on your preferences, please read the paragraphs below that apply to you plus the general information on caravan camping. 
Reservation: The sign up sheet for the School Area Camping Ground Week 1 can be found here. All other weeks require no sign-up. You can choose this option when registering for a programme or a party pass on My Herräng.
Cost: SEK 300 per person and week, plus an optional SEK 100 per caravan per day for electricity.
Caravan Camping
 
SCHOOL AREA CAMPING GROUND (Week 1, 9 July - 16 July); mandatory electricity
In an effort to avoid stress and chaos on our side, associated with a possible scramble for prime spots in the area, we have a sign-up sheet for caravan campers at the School Area Camping Ground for week 1. The sign-up sheet will be available here later so please check back soon.

Once in Herräng on 9 July, please come to the School Area Camping Ground in person at 10.00, but please don't bring your caravan, instead please place it at Malmen Sports Ground. On that day, our camping representative will be present and will take care of distributing the different spots in accordance with the sign-up sheet mentioned above. Please make sure to be there on time since no late-comers will be given any priority. Once the School Area Camping Ground fills up, all remaining caravans must find spots at the Malmen Sports Ground instead.

SCHOOL AREA CAMPING GROUND (Weeks 2 - 3, 16 July - 30 July); mandatory electricity
No pre-booking procedure is needed for week 2 to 5. Instead, please contact our Camping Mom at the School Area Camping Ground upon arrival to receive a designated spot.

MALMEN SPORTS GROUND (all weeks)
This area is located on the left side, immediately before Malmen Sports Ground. No pre-booking procedure exists. Instead, please locate a spot in the area and then park your caravan accordingly.
 
Important note for 2022There will be NO electricity and facilities (toilets, drinking water and showers) available at Malmen Sports Ground this year. The water will be unsafe for washing dishes and drinking. If you stay at or near Malmen, please use the facilities in the school area (in the gym, school and outside the laundry area.)
