Spend a night in a tree!
Tentsiles are the new, up-class form of spending the night out. These “skytents” are suspended between firm trees giving you the sensation of a lighter sleep! In addition you have all the necessary accommodation services, and a little more with a bonfire and outstanding forest-views.
Tentsile Camp Haltia is located next to the Nuuksio National Park, only 30 minutes from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and 45 minutes from Helsinki city centre. Here you are guaranteed to have serene and pure nature around you without a trace of city buzz.
Have a memorable experience with friends, spouse or family, or treat yourself only in this unique environment. Enjoy an evening by a campfire with a view over lake Nuuksion Pitkäjärvi. When the night falls lay down (up) on a Tentsile and relax, feel the peace, fall asleep and wake up next morning to greet the sun.
This is an easy and high-quality venue for you to get familiar with the concept of "skytents" and sleeping "in the air" without the burdens of travelling somewhere way back yonder. Breakfast is always included in your experience and it will be served inside. Sauna is also possible to book by a request.

What is the Haltia Tentsile camp like as an accommodation?
The Tentsile can comfortably accommodate 2-3 people.
You will always stay in the Tentsile either by yourself or with your own group.
Depending on the season, the Haltia Tentsile camp has 5-7 Tentsile units. The Tentsiles are approximately 10 meters apart. Loud conversations and shouting can be heard from neighboring tents, but normal conversations cannot.
The area is traversed by established paths.
The terrain is uneven and steep in some places, so please proceed with caution! The Haltia Tentsile camp is not wheelchair accessible and is best suited for children over 10 years old.
The weight limit for the Tentsile accommodation is 400 kg/tent. (And it can certainly handle light swinging too!)
Sleeping in the Tentsile includes a sleeping bag, a hygienic inner liner (a "sheet" inside the sleeping bag), and a tent mattress. The night air flows through the tent, so the recommended season for accommodation is during warmer months. Sleeping in a Tentsile is comparable to sleeping in a tent in terms of temperature.
Nature sounds can be heard through the Tentsile fabric. We particularly recommend earplugs for light sleepers in the spring, as birds start their musical performances very early in the morning.
The main fabric of the Tentsile is waterproof and windproof. The fabric also blocks out light during summer nights. For light-sensitive individuals, we recommend using a sleep mask to ensure peaceful sleep.
How do you enter the Tentsile?
Our accommodation guide will assist you in accessing the Tentsile when you arrive. There are several ways to enter the tent, either by utilizing your own mobility or, for example, using rope ladders.
If you have specific mobility limitations, you can always inquire with us in advance to determine if Tentsile accommodation is suitable for you.
