Cam­ping as a nature experience

As the old say­ing goes in the pro­perty busi­ness: Loca­tion, loca­tion, loca­tion. For­t­u­na­tely, Ahoi Camp Feh­marn has very little con­crete gold to offer, but ple­nty of natu­ral gold. We are sur­roun­ded by seve­ral pro­tec­ted areas with inland lakes and exten­sive reed beds. Because it is such a beau­tiful, peaceful place, it is not only the cam­ping enthu­si­asts who feel at home here in the north-west of the island, but also the many spe­cies of ani­mals, birds and plants.

Our neigh­bours at Ahoi Camp Feh­marn are, for exam­ple, the tern, the avo­cet, the white-tailed eagle, the beach smooth, the great crested newt and the nat­ter­jack toad. And because we want to be good neigh­bours, we do ever­y­thing we can to help pre­serve this uni­que world.

We expect the same from our guests, even though our site rules may seem a little strict at times: Please abide by them! What makes Ahoi Camp Feh­marn spe­cial is not just the cam­per to cam­per inter­ac­tion, but above all the inter­ac­tion with nature.

There are also won­derful trails to explore by bike or on foot. You can find more infor­ma­tion about our coas­tal and lake land­scape on the web­site of Haff and Huk. Inci­den­tally, we are alre­ady working with the dedi­ca­ted mem­bers of the asso­cia­tion to find ways of making the reserve more acces­si­ble to inte­res­ted cam­pers. Of course, as ope­ra­tors, we also play our part.

For exam­ple, we’ve alre­ady taken a num­ber of steps in this direction:

  • Working with an energy con­sul­tancy to iden­tify early oppor­tu­ni­ties for impro­ve­ment in our space
  • Purchase of a new bio­lo­gi­cal was­te­wa­ter tre­at­ment plant
  • Instal­la­tion of water-saving taps in sani­tary facilities
  • Clea­ning of sani­tary faci­li­ties only with eco­lo­gi­cally tes­ted detergents
  • Use of solar coll­ec­tors for hot water in sani­tary facilities
  • Gree­ning of the square with native plants that require little watering
  • Our restau­rant and café have eli­mi­na­ted dis­posable tableware.

These are some of our next steps:

  • Trans­forming the cen­tral waste faci­lity into an edu­ca­tio­nal island to teach the importance of recycling
  • Green roofs
  • Try to mini­mise public light­ing when cam­ping. Use of down­light­ing warm white LEDs and motion detec­tors to pro­tect insects, birds, bats, fish and amphibians.
  • Nature and envi­ron­men­tal edu­ca­tion work­shops for our youn­ger guests
  • E‑charging sta­tion infra­struc­ture on our site
  • Deve­lo­p­ment of a con­ser­va­tion and sus­taina­bi­lity plan, inclu­ding moni­to­ring of dune pro­tec­tion by an exter­nal company.
