Where we are: 

  The Highlights...

  • Super comfy, luxury glamping in the trees in this wonderful part of Norway.
  • With 160,000 acres to enjoy outdoor sport, hunting and fishing can easily be arranged, accompanied by skilled local guides- just be sure to make contact in advance if youre interested.
  • Hunt, climb, fish, hike, or quietly read in the canopy by the fire, while local delicacies are delivered to your cabin.
  • Named for a 1500s forest god, the cabins are situated in a region brimming with lore and historical significance.
  • Enjoy an outdoor bonfire and barbecue throughout the year-excluding forest fire season- or snuggle up in front of your engineered wood burning stove in the cabins themselves.

  You should know...

  • Six people is the maximum each cabin can accommodate.
  • There are charging ports for electric cars.
  • The cabins are super-safe, designed to withstand double hurricanes, and while there are wild animals, there is very little risk as they fear humans and will run off should you encounter them. There is also a 24 hour alarm system, manned by local security.
  • There are two six person cabins, 100 metres apart.

  The Detail...

Suspended at canopy-height, high above the snow and forest floor, Pan Treetop Cabins is a collection of engineered cabin-style lodges, available to rent in the wild forests of eastern Norway. Praised throughout the media and design world for their innovative design, extraordinary architecture and low environmental disruption, the Pan Treetop Cabins represent a truly once in a lifetime holiday in some of the most naturally bountiful regions in the world.

Accessed via a secured enclosed staircase, the cabins themselves look out over the forest, with glass walls meaning that the elk, deer, wolves, bears, lynxes and dozens of other mammals and birds are visible throughout the year. Internally and architecturally, the cabins have a unique design which combines North American A-frame type structures with Scandinavian and alpine lodges. Judicious engineering has been employed to ensure that the cabins receive the maximum light throughout the day, while also offering brilliant views of the clear, starry skies which eastern Norway is known for. Environmental sustainability and nondisruptive construction are at the heart of this project, and guests will be delighted to learn that they are staying in a low environmental impact property. The materials and shapes used were chosen to create cabins which would blend in with the surrounding nature.

Each cabin offers six single beds, and a well-appointed modern kitchen. Either relax by cooking yourself, using fresh seasonal ingredients, from the grocery store (10km away) or the boutique, artisanal shops in the town centre (15k). Or why not take advantage of their very own food service, which delivers breakfast, lunch or dinner straight to your cabin? Both cabins are completely plumbed in and wired for electricity, so you will not have to compromise on convenience despite the elevation.

Although gazing out of the cabins you can feel as though youre the only people for miles around, guests will be delighted by the range of activities and experiences which can be arranged during your sojourn. From forest yoga to hunting, massage in your cabin to fishing, paddle-boarding to a horse and carriage ride, there is an adventure to suit everybody.

The nearest town, Flisa, is 15km away and is well worth a visit, which its rich culture, independent businesses and quant Scandinavian charm. Alternatively, a popular daytime activity is the traditional Gapahuk experience, a 1km nature hike to a spot with a communal fire, meal, and friendly shared space. Bring a book or just yourself, and look forward to company and various traditions throughout the year.
