Welcome back to nature with TreeTop Fiddan. Øy-Hytta (Treetop Island) is high up in the trees - out on a small island in a forest lake. The heat source is a wood-burning stove, and there is no running connection other than 12 v electricity. Outdoor toilet and woodshed at ground level. The solar panel operates the refrigerator and some light in the cabin and outhouse. Cooking on a great gas stove with five burners. Access by canoe or over a floating bridge.

The space
Øy-Hytta is designed to blend in with nature, and is built with local materials from the forests here at Fiddan. The construction is sustainable and everything is built according to gentle principles without modern aids, and without road connection all the way up. Everything is preserved as natural as possible, which many of today's modern people value. Øy-Hytta of 18 square meters is located on a platform up between three rough pine trees out on a tiny island in a forest lake. The stairs from the forest floor lead up to a great porch between the treetops and further into the Øy-Hytta itself. There is not much space here, but the cabin has a lot of comfort and is conveniently furnished. In the living room there is a table, bench and chairs and a sofa nook that can be turned into a double bed. The kitchenette has a gas burner for cooking, a solar-powered mini fridge, and a foot pump that provides tap water. There is a small selection of cups and bowls that make it possible to make yourself a meal. Drinking water we provide in 20 liter jugs, while washing water can be collected in the forest water or in the stream. A small staircase leads up to the loft where there are three beds, all with nice views through a window. The hammock can also be used as a sleeping area or a nap. In total, Øy-Hytta has five beds + hammock. Øy-Hytta has no installed electricity and modern light sources, only candles and kerosene lamps light up when the night settles in the woods. The flames from the fireplace also give a cozy flickering light when you crawl to bed, because here you have to light a wood to keep warm in the cold season. Just like in the old days, we have an outhouse and woodshed down on the forest floor just by the cabin. Also while sitting in the toilet you have a view over the Bervannet and in the woodshed there are some plank bits and nails so you can carve a bird box and take it home. The access from the parking lot is by canoe over the water over to Øy-Hytta. In the winter it is occasionally possible to walk across the ice over to the island. There is also a floating dock from the shore and out on the island that can be used when the ice conditions do not allow for other accessibility. The floating jetty can of course be used throughout the year for those who desire it. At the jetty there is always a canoe or rowboat that can be used freely. The veranda outside Øy-Hytta is a popular place to stay with a great view of the Bervannet and the surrounding forests. If you sit still, you can observe some of the rich wildlife in the area. In the Bervannet, there is a beaver family that you may be lucky to see. There are also times when moose, deer and deer appear. Cranes have been observed on several occasions. Ducks, geese and swans are a common sight. There are binoculars in the cabin that can be used to watch animals and birds. On the porch we feed small birds, and especially in the winter there is a vibrant life on the birdboard. Down on the ground below the cabin there is a fire pit with tables and benches built by logs. Ideal for bonfire and barbecue. If you are interested in fishing, you are allowed to try the creek and trout that can be found in the Bervannet. At the bottom of the water's edge, you will find the Bench of Love, a stone bench that nature itself has made. The story says that if you sit with your loved one on the Bench of Love with your legs in the water at sunset, then you are both married and have children within a year.
