Accommodation

Above headline and below presentation indicate all kind of possible alternatives around Sandman and his friends. The four alternatives might function in different ways, but they still have one thing clearly in common: they all operate from the Accommodation Office, next to the Reception in the Folkets Hus Area. At certain times, they might very well relocate into the areas where the alternatives physically are located; for instance 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

This alternative is the most common choice and also friendly to your wallet. 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). They all come with access to toilets and showers, but have different locations and different sizes of the rooms offered.

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, floors, heat, ventilation et cetera. The indoor alternatives are primarily for dancers following the different dance class programs, the tent alternatives are primarily for party pass dancers. Both these alternatives should preferably be booked in advance and in connection to the 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 and confirmed on a program.

Reservation: please choose this option at My Herräng when registering to a course or a party pass.
Cost: SEK 500 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. The opening date for the private accommodation service is February 25, 2019, in the afternoon. Please pay attention to that no bookings can be performed by contacting us over our general email address. Please also read all general information carefully when booking private accommodation on My Herräng, as well as the specific information regarding the alternative you want to book. If possible question marks remain, please contact us at accommodation@herrang.com.

Reservation: please log in to your My Herräng account and go to Private Accommodation.
Cost: varying.

TENT CAMPING ACCOMMODATION

Please bring your private tent and all necessary accessories (please note that electricity is never an option in combination with tents). The geographical alternatives in Herräng are either next to the School, or next to the Malmen Sports Ground. Both of the alternatives offer access to toilets, showers and kitchen sinks, and this acces is the main reason for the camping fee.

Reservation: please choose this option when registering to a program or a party pass at My Herräng.
Cost: SEK 200 per person and week.
Tent Camping

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 possible electricity and have bathrooms and showers in the areas. Depending on your preferences, please read the below applicable paragraphs plus the general information.

Reservation: no pre-booking is necessary (except for the School Area Camping Ground, week 1), but please choose this option when registering to a program or a party pass at My Herräng.
Cost: SEK 200 per person and full week or SEK 50 per single day, plus optional SEK 100 per caravan and day for electricity.
Caravan Camping
 
SCHOOL AREA CAMPING GROUND (week 1, June 29 - July 6); 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 on May 15, 2019.

Once in Herräng on June 29, 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. At this time, our camping representative will be present and take care of the procedure of distributing the different spots in accordance with the sign-up sheet as 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 have to find spots at Malmen Sports Ground instead.

SCHOOL AREA CAMPING GROUND (week 2 - 5, July 6 - August 3); 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); with electricity
This area is located on the left side, immediately before Malmen Sports Ground. No pre-booking procedure is existing. Instead, please locate a spot in the area and then park your caravan accordingly.

MALMEN SPORTS GROUND (all weeks); without electricity
This area, sometimes know as the Green Spot, is located on the right side some 100 metres before Malmen Sports Ground. No pre-booking procedure is existing. Instead, please locate a spot in the area and then park your caravan accordingly.
