We, Marcel Vos and Nicole
Tielemans, moved from the Netherlands to Hulbak in 2010. We are
the new campinghosts on Hulbak Camping & Hytter. We wish both old
and new guests a pleasant stay on Hulbak.
Inger Hulbak owns the farm and has been responsible for
the daily operations untill 2010.
The name HULBAK comes from “Hurdarbak”, an Old Norse
word meaning “the rear of a door” or “the space
between a door and wall”. When used as a place-name it means “a
place secluded by hills and mountains”. Hulbak Søre
Farm has been in the same family since 1790, and is now in the
hands of the seventh generation. Over the past 50 years, the owners
have exploited the farm’s resources in a variety of ways.
The first rental cabin was built in 1966 and in the ensuing years
the previous generation established a thriving business with 10
cabins and a campsite. Over the past 40 years we have attracted
many regular customers. Countless Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, German
and Dutch guests have loved coming here to stay in our comfortable
cabins and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Livestock (cows, sheep and goats), hay production, traditional mountain farming and
remote grazing have always been the staple activity. However, despite milk production
ending in 2003, the farm continues to be used for traditional feed production and grazing.
