Summer is getting closer and so too is the scent of the ocean, sun cream and adventure. After a successful spring, Daftö Resort is changing its attire for yet another summer as one of the best camping sites in Sweden.
The first thing that greets you when you approach the resort is a picturesque location. Daftö Resort is located on the west coast of Sweden, close to the town of Strömstad, with Kosterhavet sea on one side and peaceful nature on the other. When entering the extensive area, you are surrounded by different types and sizes of cottages, and several camping sites with tents and caravans.
The five-star resort has a pirate theme that begins at the resort itself and continues in its adventure park, Daftöland, which is filled with rides, entertainment and restaurants in the same spirit. “Our vision is to compete with the entire world and give children and young people an opportunity for world-class experiences here,” says Lena Kempe, CEO of Daftö Resort, and goes on to highlight their focus on the meetings between guests and staff.
The pirate theme is not only a visual experience, as it is also incorporated into the activities at the resort. Entertainers walk around the resort, both hosting activities and interacting with families in full pirate costume. “Everything is built on activities and attractions that the entire family can experience together,” Kempe says. “We want to create joyful moments for people to look back on and give them memories for life.”
