Have you contained your excitement yet? If you're any bit like me, you're still in awe of the beauty of this photo, the concept that you can actually camp in a tree, and that this would be one of the greatest dates ever! (Ahem, future husband I hope you read this someday.)
Welcome to the world of Tree Camping. A fast-growing adventure that, if you can believe, has been tracked all the way from beautiful California across the world to Japan, South Africa, and many other countries. Not to scare you away, but as I looked into this amazing adventure, it is a lot more complicated than this serene picture implies. Renting all of the necessary equipment and the process of actually getting up into the tree seems to be a little on the tricky side.
I wasn't quite able to find the price of this adventure either, which usually isn't a good sign but I'd like to think that the experience would be beyond worth it. The "Treeboat" bed is designed to hang from branches and comes with a mosquito net, blankets, and a pillow. Just add a nice glass of wine and a good book and I'll be a happy camper! (pun intended)
Life is incredibly beautiful, don't you agree?

Count me in! It's on my bucket list!! ~sandraReplyDelete
WOW!! Where did you find/hear about this?! Sounds amazing!!ReplyDelete
This does look very fun! By the way, I once slept in my friend's treehouse that he built and lived it. We climbed up (not so hard as it seems) the redwood, and we repelled down on a rope (like one for climbing). This looks magical! Thanks for the photos.ReplyDelete

Would like to make a trip. Do you know of any other camping resorts operations that provide this experience? The link is no longer found.ReplyDelete

This is WRONG. Those images are for a tree camping site in GERMANY! It does NOT exist in California.ReplyDelete
The camping site in Germany isn't close to the sea, so this picture wasn't shot there.Delete
yeah but how do you find out where to go and make reservationsReplyDelete
Picture was made by NG photographer Louie Psihoyos. Here you can find the complete set. http://www.psihoyos.com/pages/Features/TreeClimbing/treeclimb.htmlReplyDelete
As you can read in his page, that's not a resort, it was just a group who decided to stay on trees.
What if you have to use the restroom? :/ReplyDelete
Hang it over the edge .. or climb down..Delete
