Experience and participate in Naturefest. A shaman gathering that celebrates and revitalizes the Norse and Saami Shamanic culture. There is surprisingly many from abroad that chooses to travel to this rural place to celebrate. First and foremost because at Naturefest they find a living culture, not just and reenactment. Then they fall for our grassroot approach to the gathering. Last year there where as far as we know 9 different nationalities represented in addition to the Norwegian nationalities.
Nature Festival is four days filled with games, ceremonies, drumming, healing, alternative market and music. But what people remember best is the good meeting, the good conversations around the fire. Here memories are created for life and the festival is completely drug free. Four days, with proximity to nature, a time to joy, a time for contemplation. Let everyday stress disappear with friends (Also those you have not met yet) and rediscover the sacred in nature, both inside and outside. We are based on voluntary work and together with you we create an unforgettable festival. All are welcome.
There is a possibility to book a space in common room, but you will have to bring sleepingmat and sleepingbag. Have in mind that the weather and temperature can vary greatly in Norway and the temperature might differ between 15-25 Celsius.

Who we are
Nature Festival wants to revitalize the shamanic traditions found in the north and consider us as bearers of the immaterial spiritual and religious cultures of Norway but also welcome simmilar shamanic cultures native to Europe and the world. Our goal is to create an arena for cultural exchange and for this we created the Nature Festival for you and for anyone who finds the sacred on Mother Earth. We are an ideal grassroot festival that wants to create memories for life, which is why we call it summer’s most beautiful adventure.
