About the campsite

You don't have to go all the way to Australia if you want to see ostriches as well as enjoy a comfortable and peaceful camping trip. Just go to Borlänge in the beautiful Dalarna region and visit us at Sahlins Struts! If you really want a camping experience out of the ordinary, you've come to the right place! Here you will find pitches for rent.



As the name suggests, you'll find everything to do with ostriches here. But here we also have other kinds of activities in the area so it's enough and left over. Right next to the chickens' house we have created a large playground for our younger visitors where there is plenty of space for games and play. At the playground you can find trampolines, a merry-go-round, trampoline, swings, slide, playhouse, real vintage tractor, hanging frames & hammocks, sand piles. When there is snow outside, there are also sledding slopes as well as ski trails. As you can imagine, the children can play all day long in our playground. We can also organise children's parties where everyone can take part in fun activities such as treasure hunts, ice cream making and much more! Of course you can also feed the ostriches at our place! If it's your first time, feeding a bird that is 2 metres high and can weigh anything from 60 - 140 kilos is an exciting experience. You can buy a feed bag from us and feed the ostriches with it. Be careful with jewellery and other personal novelties as the ostriches are curious to eat everything. Within the area you will also find Sahlin's Brewery. Here we brew craft beer but also gin and tonic. The electricity comes from our solar panels and the grains come from the family farm. Stop by and try our delicious homemade drinks! We also serve delicious food here, with ostrich a staple on the menu. How about an ostrich burger and a bubble waffle with ostrich egg ice cream for dessert? Our restaurant is fully licensed and you'll find drinks from our own brewery for sale. We have drinks with and without alcohol. We can also arrange celebration menus for special occasions such as christenings, birthday celebrations or other occasions. We can also organize conferences and events! For example, we can organize an ostrich school where we teach you everything related to these magnificent animals. We also have a farm shop where you can find lots of interesting handicrafts. Some examples are skin products made from ostrich oil and also soap. There we also sell our food products such as smoked ostrich meat, homemade deer lemon jam and handmade chocolate pralines. With central Borlänge only 6 km away and Falun 15 km, it is easy and convenient to experience the city feeling if the feeling should strike you. Both towns have plenty to offer but of course there are plenty of other things like hiking trails, historical sights and more. Ask us for tips! We have a good knowledge of the area.
