Tentsile Experience Camps are unique destinations in areas of outstanding natural beauty, where visitors can play, camp, and explore. On the Sammakkoniemi campsite on Linnansaari island you can sleep cozy in the trees. In a tent suspended between the trees you sleep like on a cloud in the middle of nature. Compared to a normal tent this is even better, you are higher from the ground, better view to hang out and no cones under your bed. We also recommend booking the traditional Finnish sauna and have a swim in the lake!
On the Sammakkoniemi campsite we have three Tentsile Stingray tents. The Tentsile Stingray has enough space for 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children to sleep in absolute comfort. The Tentsile Stingray's spacious interior consists of three separate sleeping places and a mesh fabric covered passage in the middle. The tree tent comes with a rain cover, which you can open to enjoy the starry sky under the mosquito net. The rain cover can be attached tightly to the ground in windy and rainy weather and can be installed more openly with the help of the included pegs. There is approx. 15m2 of dry space under the Stingray, which can be used to store equipment.
