New Nordic Sauna and Shower House Now Open!

Make your wildest glamping dreams come true in our Firefly, the first unit of its kind in Alberta! This tree cocoon is suspended from trees a few feet above the ground. Unwind, spend quality time and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience on 160 private acres of boreal forest. Melt away all your stress away in our brand new wood-burning Nordic sauna - access is included in your stay.

The Firefly is almost 10 ft wide (3 meters), and is 100% bed (queen size). Pillows, sheets, a duvet and an interior lamp are provided. This off-grid stay has basic solar power to charge your cell phone and laptop, but does not have electricity or running water.

The outside space features a private area with 2 large canopies for rain cover/shade, LED lights, an outdoor sectional, a propane fire table (no wood fires permitted!), a picnic table, 2 gravity chairs and a camping stove with propane. There is also a shared wood-burning Nordic sauna, a shared heated off-grid shower house with on-demand hot water and a composting toilet, a second shared composting toiled outhouse, a heated shared gazebo to cook and eat in with an egg chair, picnic table, commercial-grade patio heater, LED lights, BBQ and propane range and winter canvas walls, as well as a styled greenhouse with table and chairs to dine in if desired!

Glamping is very much like camping in the sense that it is an outdoor experience - camping knowledge and essentials are required. Bring your own shower water jug (4L recommended), drinking water and camping food.
Please note: We have 3 geodomes on our property (and 1 seasonal treehouse cocoon), approx 150 ft away from each other. There may be other glampers and pets on the property during your stay.

As you can see in the pictures, this is not a drive-up situation. Our glamping units are in the forest and as such please be prepared for a short walk from your car (180ft) to the Firefly. Also, considering it is a forest, there are no paved trails and you can expect the same terrain you'd find in a forest anywhere else :)

On-site shower + 2 toilets: One off-grid shower house with composting toilet and one outhouse with composting toilet. The heated shower house features a luxurious Moroccan plaster shower, on-demand hot water heater (bring your own water, 4L jug recommended), hand washing station and composting toilet. The outhouse features a composting toilet (instructions provided) and a foot-pump hand washing station with soap (spring/summer/fall).
