Outside Båtskärsnäs, in Kalix municipality, you’ll find Frevisören. A campsite with 40 cabins and a couple of hundred caravan pitches. But above all: as much sea and nature as you could possibly want.
It’s not really the ideal time of year to call Ove Forsberg at Frevisören. But we’ll give it a go. After a slow start to the summer the season has now begun in earnest. The heat has come to stay along the Swedish Lapland coastline and Ove thinks Frevisören will probably be booked out tonight.
The weather is obviously the main reason why there are so many guests. Another is that so many have discovered the advantages of camping and come back for another summer. The repeat guests are many.
– Yes, the longest-returning guest came here for the first time in 1967. Many seasonal guests come back year after year. Some of our Norwegian guests ‘grew up’ at the campsite when they were kids. And now they’re adults and come back with their own children, Ove says when we get a chance to talk to him.

– The guests are mainly Norwegian and Swedish families in high season. But the rest of the time it’s a mix, with RVs and campers from Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden.
