Norwegian Treetop Wilderness
Norway’s first approved treetop houses.
- Stunning location two hours from Oslo
- Norways first approved tree top house
- Panoramic forest views
- Right in the heart of the Norweigian forest
- Stunning nature right on your doorstep
Eight meters above the forest floor, in between the treetops, you can now stay safely and comfortably in Norway’s first approved tree houses. The tree house, the Sky Hut, is located in Ringsaker, between Hamar and Lillehammer, about two hours north of Oslo and has great views of the Norwegian forest wilderness. Staying here you will experience close encounters with nature, birds, and forest creatures.
The Sky Hut has been built with huge windows in the roof over the beds giving you the feeling of sleeping under an open sky. There are panoramic views of the forest, and of the sky and the stars through the large windows in the roof. The tree house is insulated, has a wood burning oven, and is equipped with everything you need for a pleasant experience accommodation in the trees. The tree house found in the middle of Norway’s wonderful outdoors is available throughout the year.
There is space for maximum 7 people in the tree house and the tree house is self-catering. The tree house is accessed via a staircase and guests will need to bring their own sleeping bag or quilt cover. If the wind picks up, the cabins move gently with the trees, providing a calming swaying feeling. This makes you aware you are not in a city hotel or in any normal tree house. The cabins are insulated for the winter and they have gas heating. Gas, firewood, disposable, cutlery, candles and bird seeds are included. In the fully equipped kitchen, you`ll find a gas oven, a fridge, and a washbasin.
The tree house is located far away from the sights and sounds of traffic and populated areas. This means that on any night the only thing you will hear will be the sounds of the forest. On clear nights, the dark skies are littered with an amazing array of stars.
Moose are often seen in the area, and sometimes, reindeer in the summer and autumn. At the edge of the marsh, bear tracks have been discovered, golden eagles are seen soaring through the air and cranes nest on the marsh. There are bird feeders in the tops of the trees to attract all types of bird life. Birds, squirrels, and woodpeckers are frequent guests and delight both children and adults with their presence in the trees. There are many activities to choose from including trail running, hiking, cross-country skiing, and mountain biking.

This is a place to get away from it all for a day or two: a tree top hut in the middle of the forest, with only squirrels and birds nearby. The hut is small and offers basic comfort only with electricity, a water tank and a gas stove, but the reward comes with a balcony 10m above the ground, with the option for an outdoor BBQ there!Stayed August 2016, traveled with family
With our cabin, there was also a small lake nearby where one can fish, and we there were lots of blueberries as well.
On the downside - if one can call it one - the huts are very popular and one needs to book way in advance, and then hope for good weather. The huts are also not very cheap, but the overall experience is certainly worth it!

A trip to remember
It's fantastic to rent a cabin in a tree, and actually live the whole weekend amongst wild birds og squirrels. It's a small cabin, but it has everything you need. A kitchen, a toilet, six beds and a sofa. This is recreation for your soul.
