What happens when you combine an idea for a multi-story camping tent with the childlike love for treehouses? You get this fanciful creation known as Vista, a suspended “tree tent” or “portable treehouse” that allows campers to sleep among the trees (literally).
Designed by British tent makers Tentsile, the suspended tent hangs between trees with a series of straps and ratchets. The basic unit has a roof and insect mesh, but isn’t fully sealed on the sides to give the true experience of being one with nature. To add more stories to the tent structure, additional units can be attached underneath.
Each tent level can hold three adults or two adults and two children, and they can be easily accessed through a small floor hatch. The top level’s roof is removable for campers who want to gaze up at the stars. Plus, the ground area below the tent becomes a covered porch, perfect for cooking and setting up a sitting area.
