For the more adventurous souls, Treetop Huts in Norway has stunning accommodation resting a whopping eight meters above the ground! This kind of elevation obviously gives guests an absolutely stunning view over the wilderness of the forest and allows guests to have close contact with nature, including the animals that also reside in the forest. Such awesome treehouses give a privileged insight into the natural surroundings, making for a perfect getaway for those seeking peace, quiet, and of course, a little excitement!
Treetop Huts have six treehouses for guests to choose from named Pine Hut, Larch Hut, Spruce Hut, Birch Hut, Sky Hut, and Climbing Hut. All the huts, except the Climbing Hut, are in the forests of Ringsaker, about two hours’ drive from Oslo. The Climbing Hut is built closer to the lake Mjøsa. The Pine, Larch and Spruce Hut are named after surrounding trees. The Sky Hut, Birch Hut, and the Climbing Hut have an incredible sky view through large skylights. All huts are fully winter insulated, firewood heated, so there is no need to wait for fine, warm weather to book a retreat here.
Each treehouse at the Treetop Huts has been added slowly over the years, so each has a unique design and specialized features. One hut has a ramp leading up to it, making it accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. The huts are fitted with solar panels and compost toilets, and the aim of the site is to leave as small an impact on the surrounding forest as possible. The treehouses are gentle on the trees that give them support and these structures are not intended to be permanent additions to the forest.
Rates for the Treetop Huts start at €200 per treehouse per night. This cost is for the whole hut, regardless of how many people are staying within. Prices obviously vary depending on which hut is booked and the time of year of the booking.
