Welcome back to nature with the TreeTop Fiddan. The island hut (Treetop Island) is high in the trees - out on a tiny island in a forest water. The heat source is a wood-burning stove, with no input other than 12v current. Outside and woodshed at ground level. Solar panel drives the fridge and some light in the cabin and in the outhouse. Cooking on a great five-burner gas stove. Access by canoe or over a floating bridge.

The space
The island cabin is designed to interact with nature, and is built from 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 forward. Everything is preserved as naturally as possible, something many of today's modern people know to cherish. The 18-square-metre island cabin sits on a platform up between three coarse pine trees on a tiny tiny island in a forest water. The staircase from the forest floor leads up to a nice porch between the treetops and further into the Øy-Hytta itself. There's not much space here, but the cabin has great comfort and is conveniently furnished. In the living room there are tables, benches and chairs and a sofa hook that can be converted into a double bed. The kitchen hook has a gas flare for cooking, mini-fridge powered by solar current and foot pump that provides tap water. There is a small selection of cups and tubs that make it possible to make a meal. Drinking water we deliver in 20 litre jugs, while washing water can be collected in the forest water or in the basin. A small staircase leads up to the hemisphere where there are three beds, all with nice views through a window. The hammock can also be used as a sleeping area or a dinner nap. In total, Øy-Hytta has five beds + hammock. Øy-Hytta has no power and modern light sources, only candles and paraffin lamps light up when the night sinks in the woods. The fires from the fireplace also provide a cosy flickering light when you crawl to the cold, because here you have to light firewood to keep the heat in the cold season. In the same way as in the old days, we have outdoors and woods down at the bottom of the woods near the cabin. Also sitting in the toilet, you have a view of Bervannet, and in the woodshed there are some plank pieces and nails so you can snatch a bird box and bring home. Access from the parking lot is by canoe over the water to Øy-Hytta. In winter, it is sometimes possible to cross the ice over to the island. There is also an airlift from land to the island that can be used when the ice conditions do not allow other accessibility. The floating bridge can of course be used all year round for those who wish. At the jetty is always a canoe or rowboat that can be used freely. The terrace outside Øy-Hytta is a graceful resting place with a great view of the Bervand and the forests around it. If you sit still, you can observe some of the rich wildlife in the area. In Bervannet lives a beaver family that you may be lucky to see. There are also times when moose, deer and deer show up. 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 look at animals and birds. On the porch, we feed little birds, and especially in the winter, it's a ravishing life on the birdcage. At the bottom of the hill under the cabin is a fireplace with tables and benches built of logs. Ideal for bonfire and barbecue. If you are interested in fishing, you are allowed to try the brook eye and trout found in Bervannet. At the very bottom of the water you will find the Bench of Love, a stone bench made by nature itself. History says that if you sit with your loved one on the bench of Love with your legs in the water at sunset, yes, you are both married and have children within a year.
