Canvas Hotel is situated in a secret lake location, 15km off-road from the main road, so the logistics of getting the yurts from our workshop in Devon to Norway was a challenge. The yurts first arrived in Norway by boat shipment. Met by our team, the yurts were then split between an under-slung helicopter and pick-up truck to be transported to the lake first, then followed by a small boat trip to the island.
With the yurts components in place, it was then time to build. A combination of our master carpenters, expert sewers, a scuba-diver and half the yurt hire team, together supported the local platform builders to create the upgraded Canvas Hotel. Our roaming designer-machinist was there to measure, cut, sew and install on site as required, to make the bespoke covers for the kitchen and dining room.
