The story of Canopée-Lit

Canopée-LitOur team

The Short Story of a Big Team!

It all began with a trip in September 2008 and an unexpected meal on the shores of the Fjord with a breathtaking sunset.

A forest was for sale. And why not? We could build cabins in the trees! We were a small group of people from France - a mother, her daughter, son, son-in-law, grandson, another grandson, and a nephew. We set to work.

Each of us has our own particular skills and favourite interests.

Each of us has found our role in the dream, may you discover your dream here as well!


 

Canopée-LitThe forest

The forest

24 wooded hectares, 3 streams, one of which has its source within the forest, 5 km of tracks and 8 bridges, 1 heron, 3 goats, 312 hares, 518 squirrels and sometimes even a bear! We hope you will take time out to go for fascinating walks while you're here. And to guide you, in 2015 we created a nature trail and a booklet with 18 plants and trees of the boreal forest. The booklet is available at the front office.

Canopée-LitThe project

Canopée Lit : How and why?

Ideas, sketches, neighbours, cafés, planning around the table, travels, the past, the future, and the present, our time has given birth to Canopée Lit. Climb up and feel the clean forest air perched in a tree.

We offer you a cabin concept. With some water, but not too much, some electricity, but not too much. Happiness is perhaps not where you expect to find it... Rise up and you will see!

 

 

Canopée-LitCreating the project

Construction That Respects the Environment

All-Season Cabins: Warm and welcoming, these were our first forest constructions! Local artisans were with us for the building and installation in 2010. We did it! The adventure had begun.

Summer cabins, the next stage, took place in 2013.

Three years up and running, and after much contemplation, we were back in our workshops drawing up new plans and building more cabins. Romantic and light, we innovated with a glass dome in the ceiling above the beds.

The bubbles: a wild, new concept. Our bubbles were hoisted up to their platforms in the spring of 2014. We keep developing new products to diversify your experience. No time for boredom!

Subsequent cabin generations will be innovative and inspired, fulfilling crazy and unusual dreams.
