The story of Canopée Lit

Canopée-LitOur team

The Short Story of a Big Team!

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

A forest was for sale. We thought: Why not? We could build cabins up in the trees! We were a small group of people from France - a mother, her daughter, her son, son-in-law, two grandsons and a nephew. We all 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 directly within the forest, 5 km of trails and 8 bridges, 1 heron, 3 goats, 312 hares, 518 squirrels, and sometimes even a bear or two! We hope you will take some time out to go for a fascinating walk while you're here. And to guide you, we have created in 2015 a nature trail and a booklet listing 18 plants and trees found in the Boreal Forest. The booklet is available for purchase at the Front Office.

Canopée-LitThe project

Canopée Lit : How and why?

Ideas, sketches, conversations with neighbours, coffees, planning around the table, travels, the past, the future, the present. From our time and ideas is born this wild project: Canopée Lit. Climb up and feel the clean air of the forest, perched in a tree.

We offer you a Cabin Concept. With some water, but not too much, some electricity, but not too much. Perhaps happiness is 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 accompanied us for the construction and installation in 2010. We did it! The adventure had begun!

Summer Cabins: Coming up next, their construction took place in 2013.

After 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-weighted, we innovated with a glass dome in the ceiling above the beds.

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.
