Accomodation and Food
Accomodation: Information about floor accomodation will be added here shortly.
Apart from floor accomodation, there are many hotels and hostels available in Varberg city center, 9-10 kilometers from the venue. The competition schedule has been adjusted to make it slightly easier to commute using the local train from Varberg station to Tofta. So if you don´t fancy sleeping on the floor of the venue, you can likely also check Varberg city options which might suite you better.
Food: You should propably prepare yourself more than usual for this competition, as there aren´t any restaurants or supermarkets in Tofta. The closest restaurants are Burger King and McDonalds 2,1 kilometers from the venue. Here, you will also find a CircleK gas station were you will find a very limited selection of food to buy. We will have access to a full kitchen at the venue, where you can both store and cook simple food. The closest regular supermarkets are located 7-8 kilometers from the venue, and therefore only accessible by car. If you have any questions about this, feel free to contact the organiser.
By Car: The address of the venue is Bygdegårdsvägen 2, 432 95 Varberg, which is very close to the E6 highway. Parking is available right by the venue for free.
By Train: The venue is located 900 meters from Tofta station, served by local trains going between Varberg and Borås. Competitors travelling by train to Tofta will most likely change trains at Varberg station, about 8 minutes down the line from Tofta.
