Spend a night in a tree!
This is an 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.
Skytent Ecocamp Nuuksio 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 the tent 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 indoors. Sauna is also possible to book by a request.

What is the skytent like as an accommodation?
The skytent can comfortably accommodate 2-3 people.
You will always stay in the tent either by yourself or with your own group.
Depending on the season, the Skytent Ecocamp Nuuksio camp has 5-7 tents at site. The tents 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 Skytent Ecocamp Nuuksio is not wheelchair accessible and is best suited for children over 10 years old.
The weight limit for the tent is 400 kg/tent. (And it can certainly handle light swinging too!)
Sleeping in the tent 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 skytent is comparable to sleeping in a tent in terms of temperature.
Nature sounds can be heard through the tent fabric. We particularly recommend earplugs for light sleepers in the spring, as birds start their musical performances very early in the morning.
The cover fabric of the tent is water- and windproof. The fabric also blocks out light during summer nights. For light-sensitive visitors, we recommend using a sleep mask to ensure peaceful sleep.
How do you enter the skytent?
Our accommodation guide will assist you in accessing the tent 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 this tent accommodation is suitable for you.
