What is Tentsile like as accommodation?

Tentsile comfortably accommodates 2-3 people.

You will stay in Tentsile either alone or with your own group.

At Huuhanranta Tentsile Camp, there are 2-4 Tentsile units depending on the season. Tentsiles are approximately 10 meters apart. Loud conversations and screams can be heard from neighboring tents, but normal conversations cannot. The Tentsile camp is similar to a traditional tent camp.

There are established paths in the area.

The terrain consists mainly of sandy beach and pine forest, so please try to clean your feet before climbing into the tent.

Tentsile camp is not accessible.

The weight limit for Tentsile accommodation is 400 kg per tent. (And it can definitely withstand light bouncing!)

The recommended equipment for Tentsile camping includes a sleeping bag and camping mat. The tent allows airflow, so the preferred camping season is during warm weather. Sleeping in a Tentsile is comparable to camping in terms of temperature.

Nature sounds can be heard through the Tentsile fabric. We recommend earplugs in the spring for light sleepers, as birds start their serenades very early in the morning.

The outer fabric of Tentsile is water and windproof. The fabric also blocks out light during summer nights. For those sensitive to light, we recommend using an eye mask for peaceful sleep.

How do you get inside a Tentsile?

There are several ways to enter the tent, either by utilizing your own mobility or using rope ladders, for example. Use either the hole on the bottom of the tent to push yourself in, or climb in from the side window/door.

Cleanliness and waste

The camper is responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and condition of Tentsile Camp, its surroundings, and the associated services. Tentsiles should be thoroughly cleaned after use.

Please sweep away sand, pine needles, and any other possible debris from the tent before leaving.

Tentsile Camp follows a "leave no trace" principle. We expect our campers to responsibly sort and handle their waste. Burning trash is not allowed.


Our tentsiles are designed for human visitors only, so unfortunately pets are not allowed.

Things to do at Huuhanranta

"The scenery unfolding before us made an immediate impression: behind the pine forest, the blue Lake Saimaa shimmered, along with the vast Huuhanselkä. Saimaa's waves lapped against the shore, and our shoes quickly came off. The sand felt warm under our toes, and the water was around twenty degrees."

For families with children, there is a bonfire spot, parking area, and swimming spot at Huuhanranta. Huuhanranta is managed by the South Karelia Recreation Area Foundation (EKVAS).
