What are we going to do

Tentsile Tree Tent Kommee Kurki provides you memories for lifetime!

Book for 2-6 people. If there are less than 6 vacancies available, please book another day as this is a private thing only for one entourage :)

Experience our Tentsile tree tent lifting your feet off the ground! In Finland, in the Tampere Region, in the small but lively city of Sastamala you can have a unique, ecological experience in nature by sleeping in a Tentsile Stingray tree tent set up in the air between trees. The restful location of our Tree Tent Kommee Kurki is next to a bird lake, on the border of a nature reserve in our private forest. There are two tree tents only for your entourage of max 6 adults to enjoy, so you can have this wonderful experience in privacy.

Kommee Kurki is LGBTQ+ friendly and we are a member of We speak gay -community.

”The Great Finnish Tree Tent! Wow, what a truly tranquil place you have created here in the forest! We adored our two nights in the tree tent, it was most comfortable, and provided beautiful views during sunrise.” C & A, 9.8.2018

This is THE place to totally relax and get in touch with your inner self again.

Our Tentsile tree tents are situated close enough to our family house and to the vacation house B&B Kommee Kurki to give you the feel of safety, but to give you your own peace and quiet. You will get unique memories by sleeping in the pure air in the Finnish forest and by having all the nature sounds around you. One of the best pros are the cranes that live just next to you at the bird lake Hanhijärvi. If you are lucky enough, you might even see some other wild forest animals! Don’t worry, there haven’t been any bears or wolves seen in the area but you can spot e.g. a fox, a deer or a badger. There are also some beavers nearby from time to time, so you can go see the trees they try to use for their dams.

But to be honest, the best thing to do here is just to relax, listen to the nature and think of nothing more but when to have the campfire and when to climb inside the tree tent.

Basics of Tree Tent Kommee Kurki

Our tree tents are Tentsile Stingray 3G, which has a capacity of 400 kg per tent. One tree tent accommodates 3 adults / 2 adults + 2 kids / 1 adult + 3 kids. There are air-filled camping mats for three in both tree tents. You will need to take your own sleeping bags with you or you can rent those for 3 persons from us (15 € each). You can rent pillows for a small fee (3 € each). You can pay these as well as other chosen extras with card or cash when you arrive.

When you book for a big family like 2 adults + 5-6 kids, make the reservation for 6 people.
Note: For safety reasons we recommend that in both tree tents there is one adult with under 15 year old children.

One of the two tents is attached to trees about 1,8 m from the ground and there is a rope ladder for climbing inside. The other tent is attached lower, so you can climb inside through a zipper opening which makes it easy and safe for a bit smaller kids and e.g. people with some aches.

The overlay fabric of the tree tent is transparent and it works like mosquito net. There is also a rain cover which keeps you protected from wind, too. There are a campfire site and an eco toilet with hand washing station next to the tree tents.

Staying in the forest means that there will be more or less mosquitos. However they won’t bug you too much, as you can use the small but efficient Thermacell mosquito repellant appliance.

Tree Tent Kommee Kurki is available from beginning of May until late September.

About Anja - the Doer

We started with tree tent accommodation in 2018, being the first ones in Tampere Region, as our surroundings were screaming for some other possibilities than our B&B Kommee Kurki. The area is safe and in the middle of the beautiful countryside, and we wanted to offer the amazing soundscape with cranes etc. to our visitors. We are LGBTQ+ friendly.

Requirements

You don't have to be a hc hiker etc. as this is suitable as well for urban people as for nature enthusiasts. Remember to take your sleeping bags or ask them for rent from us, and take plenty of warm clothes as nights can be quite cold outside. Oh, and take nice food of course!
