Tree tent or the perfect combination between a hammock and a tent. Find out how it feels to sleep in a tent hung a few meters above the ground!
I have always been a huge fan of sleeping in hammocks and tents. Imagine how interesting it was for me when I got to know that a tree tent exists. Hanged on three trees, this tent is the best accommodation for everyone with a love for adventures. It can be hung on any height as it has a small ladder that helps access the tent.
We spent only one night in the tent. But what a night! We were hanging a few meters from the ground, situated right next to a lake, giving us a beautiful view over the water and the hills around. Close to the forest, an eco-farm can be found. So you are to enjoy the sounds from all the lovely birds living in the woods and the farm animals. After all, the feeling of waking up from a rooster is thousands of times more pleasant than your alarm every day.
You shouldn’t be worried about the cold, bring a good blanket, and you will sleep perfectly fine! The tent has a mosquito cover and a thicker one, keeping the warm air inside it.
We enjoyed the tent in April, but in Norway, even with low temperatures we weren’t cold. But don’t rush to close the tent too soon! We spent hours lying inside, watching the stars from the comfort of our tent. Ah, it was such a beautiful night!
Before enjoying the stars, we made some excellent burgers in the firehouse, situated right next to the lake. There were nice couches and a round fireplace perfect for grilling yummy dinners at our disposal.
As I already mentioned, this was the first night for us in a tent like this. And the expectations were HIGH. The tent was more comfortable than I thought it would be. However, I found one downside. The night peeing situation. As the entrance is situated in the middle of the “floor” of the tent, I had first to wake up my boyfriend and move him from the “door” to go out at night. We had a good night's sleep, besides the fact that if one moves, the other one jumps.
In the end, it is a tent hung up on trees. I would totally recommend this experience to everybody, but I would think twice if I’m planning a week in it. It is pretty exciting to sleep in the air. Not only this but the views in the mornings and evenings are incomparable. As mentioned before, the tent takes star gazing to another level. Just laying in it, with an open cover, ah, a spectacular theater of falling stars. Magical.
