There is something very special about staying in a tipi - the sense of space, the freedom and adventure - that sets it apart from other kinds of camping experience. Tipi Adventure in Dalsland features accommodation in a traditional Swedish tipi next to the lake. A tipi holiday suitable for couples, groups of friends and families with children of all ages and the perfect base for a variety of outdoor activities available (note that some activities are suitable only for children aged 12 and over).
Each evening you will cook your dinner over wood-fired barbecue (you are also welcome to bring camping stove, etc, if you prefer) before retiring to your own tipi to sleep beneath the stars on a bed of fir twigs covered with warm and comfortable reindeer skins, lulled to sleep by the lap of the water against the rocks.
Included as standard is a rowing boat with each tipi which can be used at your leisure to explore the lake or to go fishing (please bring your own fishing equipment if you would like to fish) and the surrounding forests offer wonderful opportunities for hiking. Also included is a session in a wood-fired hot-tub by the water's edge - a wonderful way to relax at the end of a day in the outdoors!
Tipi Adventure in Dalsland is a very flexible experience, giving you the opportunity to be as active and adventurous as you wish, or simply to relax in your tipi and watch the world go by if you prefer.
For those hungry for adventure, there is a wide range of activities to choose from during your stay:

The tipi, known as a "kåta" in Swedish or "goahti" in Samiska (the language of the indigenous Sami people of northern Sweden) is a traditional conical structure formed around a frame of wooden poles with a central fireplace.
Tipis in Sweden are used as areas for socialising, for eating and for sleeping. Flexible and spacious, a tipi is the perfect base for outdoor activities.
