WELCOME TO ODIN CAMPING

ODING CAMPING WAS AN EARLIER PART OF WHAT IS NOW DIVIDED INTO TWO CAMPING RESORTS. ODIN CAMPING IS LOCATED BY ONSAKERVIKA, TYRIFJORDEN.

EARLY IN 1962 IT WAS ASLE RAAEN; THE BROTHER OF OLUF RAAEN (FATHER OF OWNER THORLEIF RAAEN) WAS TOLD THAT OSLO TOWNSHIP PLANNED TO USE ONSAKERVIKA FOR A BEACH RESORT. ONSAKERVIKA WAS THEN AN AREA FOR THE FARM ANIMALS OF BOTH ONSAKERVIKA FARMS AND ALSO AN ARE FOR THE LOCAL POPULATION TO SWIM DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. ASLE RAAEN CONTACTED THEN HIS BROTHER OLUF RAAEN AND THE IDEA OF A CAMPING RESORT WAS THEN BORN.

THE FIRST GUESTS ARRIVED AT THE RESORT EARLY IN THE SIXTIES. OLUF RAAEN AND TORBJØRN SLÅTTO ACCEPTED PAYMENT FROM THE GUESTS BY VISITING EACH TENT INDUVIDUALLY . MARKETING FOR THE RESORT WAS TROUGH WORD OF MOUTH. SINCE THE RESORT WAS LOCATED IN ONSAKERVIKA, IT WAS NATURAL THAT THE NAME BECAME SUCH.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO CARE FOR OUR GUESTS AND WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE FIFTH GENERATION OF CERTAIN FAMILIES WELCOME TO THE RESORT.

MOST OF THE INVESTMENTS ON THE RESORT WAS DONE TROUGH THE LABOR OF THE OWNERS THEMSELF. THROUGH THE SUMMER SEASON EACH FAMILY HAD THEIR OWN 24 HOUR SHIFT AS THEIR RESPONSABILITY.

IN THE EIGHTIES THE RESORT WAS CHANGED TO A TYPE OF LIMITED COMPANY WITH A 50 PERCENT PART TO EACH FAMILY. THE LIMITED COMPANY UTELIZED THEIR OWN PROPERTY AS SHARES IN THE COMPANY.

THE RESORT SLOWLY BUILT UP A REPUTATION IN EUROPE AND WE HAVE GUEST FROM MOST OF EUROPE VISITING DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. THE PARKING AREA WAS OFTEN COMPLETELY FULL OF CARS THAT VISITED OUR BEACH DURING THE DAY.

AS THERE WAS NEED FOR FUTHER INVESTMENT IN THE RESORT, THE OWNERS DECIDED THAT THE BEST OPTION WAS TO DIVIDE THE RESORT INTO TWO RESORTS. THE AREA TO THE NORTH CALLED ODIN CAMPING IS OWNED BY THE RAAEN FAMILY. ODIN CAMPING HAS ALSO RENTED A LARGE AREA FURTHER TO THE NORTH AND THIS AREA WHEN FULLY DEVELLOPED WILL DOUBLE THE SIZE OF THE RESORT.

WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OUR GUEST FOR MANY SUMMERSEASONS IN THE PAST AND WE WOULD LIKE TO WISH NEW AND OLD GUESTS WELCOME TO NEW SEASONS IN THE FUTURE.

WARM WISHES FROM THE STAFF.
