Climb up to the tree tent and relax and enjoy the quietude of nature.

In the tents hovering up in the trees, you can experience the revitalising force of nature and get to explore the characteristics of North Savonian landscape from a superb location.

Be enchanted by the tips of conifers and birches dancing in the wind, smell the fragrance of marsh tea, listen to the sounds of water birds, admire the glitter of the lake and the starry sky opening at nightfall. If you are really lucky, you may get to watch a show of northern lights. The sceneries and routes of the Tiilikkajärvi National Park open up at less than 300 metres from the Tentsile tents.

Thanks to the co-operation of Metsäkartano and the local Vaarojen Majat enterprise, you can stay the night in a Tentsile tree tent at Metsäkartano, adjacent to the Tiilikkajärvi National Park. There are two Tentsile-tents in all, and each of them accommodates one to three occupants, so there is accommodation available in a tree tent for up to six persons. They are located within sight from each other, but distant enough from each other that voices do not carry from one tent to the other.

The Tentsile tents has been attached between three trees, and it hovers about a metre above the ground. There is room for accessories under the tent, and the tent has mosquito protection. The outer cloth protects from water. It can be removed in good weather, to admire the scenery from the tent. The tent bears a load of 400 kg. The tent is not obstacle-clear.
