Pets at Saamrus

Pets are welcome!
Saamrus is a home-from-home for you and your best friend.

If you would rather stay at home than leave the four-legged members of your family behind, why not bring them along? A special pet welcome awaits all breeds of socialised and house-trained dogs. Even cats and caged birds will feel at home.

Each cottage has a fenced garden to keep your pets safe while you take a nap. When you’re strolling with your dogs along the riverbanks or heading out on longer hikes on the 500ha of walking freedom, dogs are allowed to run freely off the lead.
