Would you like to live in a tent? Now it’s possible!

The tent flies to the bottom at full speed and often crashes for a short time into bumps.

The same impression comes to Pentti-Oskari Kankaan, 79, from the buildings resembling tent huts that have been completed in the tourist center Herrankukkaro.

The huge round window imitates the flight opening of a tent cabin, but you can get to these cabins by opening the door.

The apartments have all the elements necessary for human habitation: water comes and goes, there is a sauna, a loft, and wonderful tarred alder walls – everything you need on vacation. And peace to look at the landscape of Rymättylä in Naantali, where the sea is lapping in different shades of turquoise, opening from the huge window.

– Yes, the tourists who have come here have sometimes cried when they have entered the tent, said Kangas, the host of Herrankukkaro.

It took 23 years from the idea to the final implementation. Last autumn, a site plan was finally obtained for the area, which made it possible to build the huts. Less than ten are standing, but the plan is to build a total of sixty birdhouses on the 5.5-hectare area.

Pentti-Oskari Kanka’s ideas can be considered crazy. One of them was to found the comedy band 7 Seinähullua Veljeste in 1966. It laid the foundation for his thinking, which consists of positivity and contrasts.

– No Lapland igloo would suit these landscapes, but a shack in a tree for people is crazy enough. I once had a dream that I was learning to fly. I didn’t learn to fly, but I thought I could sleep like a bird.
