Juvet Landscape Hotel

The Juvet Landscape Hotel was designed by Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor, and is located in the heart of a picturesque forest, on the banks of the river Valdolla, in Norway.Each room is a detached small independent house with one, or sometimes two of the walls constructed in glass. The landscape in which these rooms are placed is by most people considered spectacularly beautiful and varied and the topography allows a layout where no room looks at another. In this way every room gets its own surprising view of a dramatic piece of landscape, always changing with the weather and the time of the day and the season.

Different Tent Styles

Different Tent Styles

Designers have used modern materials and technology to produce more complex models than those that were possible a few years ago. These basic styles form the basis of modern tent design:

Dome – Simple dome designs have two poles crossing at the top; some have a hooped porch whilst others have a much bigger extended living area with access options. More complex pole systems are known as geodesic, with four or more crossover poles forming many intersections for superb stability, or semi-geodesic combining three poles, balancing stability and space. All dome designs help to maximise usable internal sleeping and storage space.

Hybrids – Larger tents range from designs featuring twin domes facing a shared living space (ideal for families), to domes with versatile porches- this gives them the title of a hybrid design, as they combine features of other styles. Lighter weight tents feature ingenious combinations of poles that defy description. All aim to maximise living space, stability and ease of use.

Tunnel – A tunnel design uses two hooped poles or more running in parallel to maximise internal space. Some can be huge; others are sized generously but still fairly lightweight. Small or large, many tunnel designs offer a large porch area and good living space useful for family camping trips.

Pop-up – Pop-ups were once regarded as play tents but no longer. Larger sizes, better designs and good materials combined with out-of-the-bag pitching are now a popular choice offering a fast effective shelter. The flexible poles offer a similar tent profile to tunnel designs.

Ridge – A classic ridge design with sloping sides and a roofline that runs parallel to the ground (A-framed shape).Ridge style tents offer good stability in bad weather conditions and even heavy snow, but they can be heavy and so not a good choice if you’re backpacking or travelling on foot carrying your tent.

Hoop – These designs use 1 or 2 poles running head to toe and are often very light. Great for lightweight camping, using a design with just one pole will offer the lightest option.

Tarps – These large geometric shapes of light fabric offer flexible shelter awnings using telescopic poles or taking advantage of trees to secure guylines. Lightweight and family campers alike can benefit from the extra protection from rain and sun.

What One Should Consider When Choosing a Camping Destination

What One Should Consider When Choosing a Camping Destination

What are your goals for a family campig trip? The goal my family has is to get away, have fun, relax, and make great memories. The entire family should enjoy your camping trips. If a trip does not go well, it is mainly due to the expectations of all the family members not being met. Those planning the trip need to share their expectations with all the family members to include the destination and activities. It’s very important that all agree on the destination and most of the planned activities to make the camping trip a success.

One of the keys to choosing a camping destination is to make sure it’s age appropriate for your children. The campground should be one where your children will be safe without the constant supervision of the parents. An example could be a campground by a fast-flowing river. If the dad’s fear level is less that that of his spouse, there will be tension putting the trip in a bad light from the beginning. I love adventures and think they should be part of the outdoor camping experience. However, these experiences should be appropriate for your family and only you can decide what is best in this regard.

The second factor to consider is what recreational activities are available at the destination you’re interested in. If you have teenagers or toddlers, your expectations will be different. Since your goal is to make this a fun experience for everyone, you’ll want activities available that your children enjoy so they’ll want to keep coming with you. It’s a sad day when older children start making excuses for not going with you on family camping trips because they don’t think they’ll be any fun. As you research camping destinations, check out the recreational opportunities that are available and see what your family would prefer doing. Maybe your children like to fish and participate in other water sports like swimming and boating. Maybe they like to mountain bike or hike trails. If so, find an area that offers trails appropriate for their age and skill level. Of course it’s best if you all participate together as a family.

Men, this is important. Make decisions as a family on planning your outdoor camping adventures. The husband and wife especially need to be on the same page, if not, it’s fair to say that whichever parent is left out of the planning will be unhappy with one or more aspects of the trip. It’s best to get consensus from the family of where to go and what to do once you’re there.

Camping Supplies You Shouldn’t Forget

Camping Supplies You Shouldn’t Forget

When you try to think about breaking loose why not simply take the entire family on a camping trip. This is a good way for everyone to spend time together and to let loose in the natural outdoors. You also don’t have to worry about other people you don’t know coming and getting in your way.

In order to make sure that you have the most fun you should make sure that you bring everything you require. Too many times we will forget the provisions that we should have on hand. That makes it challenging to stay out for a week or to even have the proper type of fun.

The first things you should never forget to bring are the tents and of course the sleeping bags. This is the shelter that will help to keep us dry and warm and of course shield us from all of the bugs while we are trying to sleep. Get something for each person to utilize or purchase a large tent that all of the children can share comfortably.

The next thing you must bring with you is a cooler with the food and water you want to have. Make sure that you also take with you the correct cooking supplies that will make eating everything easy. It wouldn’t help if you didn’t have a way to cook dinner every night.

A first aid kit is crucial and will work to keep everybody safe in case of an accident. Inside of this you should have alcohol, bandages, suntan lotion, cream, aloe vera, and snake bite kits. Keep this with you at all times.

Lastly you must bring along the camping lantern and flashlights. These will work to be your eyes for when darkness falls. The campfire is cool – but it won’t help you to find your tent. Bring enough for everyone to have their own.
