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, outstanding forest-views and an optional sauna.
Nuuksio’s North Gate is located next to the 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.
Nuuksio’s North Gate is a unique combination of former manor estate with old buildings and wide tidy grass areas and of the authentic Finnish forests with pine trees and winding paths. The area is still calmer than most of the core locations in the National Park and has been described as a hidden gem!
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 Salmijärvi. 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 in the sauna lounge. Sauna is also possible to book by a request.
