Accommodation description
You can now spend the night in a real Kyrgyz yurt, where there is a bed, a fridge, candles and a wood stove - and the yurt is really nice with heat even on a cold winter day.

It can accommodate up to four people, as well as a child in a weekend bed. There is also a small dining area, and both kitchen, gas stove and refrigerator are also available.

In June 2020, the first yurt was picked up at a Kyrgyz family business in Germany. The yurt was ready for rental before July 1st. It was well attended from the first season. In November of the same year we were supposed to have been two men away, but the corona tensed its legs, so I was also alone after the second yurt.

A yurt is a hemispherical felt tent used by nomads on the steppes of Central Asia. Yurts are common in Mongolia, western China, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Afghanistan.

Most people know Mongolian yurts. However, the yurts at Birkelund Camping & Outdoor are Kyrgyz. Yurts are so prevalent in Kyrgyzstan that the ceiling ring in a yurt is depicted in the center of the Kyrgyz flag. The ceiling ring on the flag is surrounded by 40 sunbeams, which symbolize the 40 tribes that are gathered in one nation.

Outside there are table-bench sets and fire pit. You must remember to bring duvets with linen or sleeping bags.

      Secret tip
      At Birkelund Camping & Outdoor, we do something for biodiversity. We can not save the whole Earth by our little effort, but it is important to keep in mind that we can each make a small effort, which all in all turns into a big effort.

      Meet Birkelund Camping & Outdoor Henrik Sørensen

      Your host 0.0
      I have extensive experience in the outdoors. Today I own Birkelund Camping & Outdoor, which I am trying to pull in a new exciting direction.
      With me you can find accommodation in a traditional shelter, in the Flying Tent, in the cabin "The 8th Wonder" or perhaps an original Kyrgyz yurt? The cabin and yurt can also be rented in winter.
      Birkelund Camping & Outdoor was established back in 1960. Back then with the name Tarm Camping. Here, the focus has always been on a good and calm atmosphere. The entire square is surrounded by wide sheltered fences, which provide good shelter from the otherwise harsh westerly wind.
      In recent years, in order to meet the outdoor segment and more foreign tourists, many changes have taken place at the campsite to become more modern. We think about biodiversity and leave unused areas untouched. We do upcycling projects and a few years ago built a cabin from recycled materials. In 2023, a shelter will also be built from used materials. At the entrance you will find the box for collecting glasses. If you have a pair of used glasses, hand them in here, and with the organization "Bedre syn til Afrika" they will be sent to Africans who cannot afford to buy a pair of glasses. In 2023, there is a further focus on reducing paper consumption. You cannot get tourist brochures made of paper. At the entrance, it will be possible to scan QR codes for the most popular attractions.
      It is also at the entrance that you will find QR codes for a lot of walking tours. Many of the trips go out in a Natura 2000 area. Skjern Enge is the lower part of Skjern Å which in the years 1999 – 2003 was recreated with meandering streams, wet meadows and lakes, after it had been straightened out in a large land reclamation project in the 1960s.
      Skjern Å is also popular with anglers. 2022 was a record year with 1912 salmon caught in the Skjern Å system. 68 salmon over 100 cm were caught. However, the record is old: The largest salmon ever caught in Denmark was caught in Skjern Å. The salmon, which weighed no less than 26.5 kilos and was 136 cm long, was caught by D.C. Dinesen in 1954.
