In the absence of mountains,
try camping hanging from a skyscraper

THE NETHERLANDS — During their Camp the Night Festival, Dutch startup Campspace.com creates campsites in places that are normally off-limits. This year the festival has teamed up with The North Face and Bever to take visitors to great heights by creating a campsite on the country's’ tallest building.

‘At Campspace.com we believe that you shouldn’t have to travel far in order to find a great camping experience. But when you’re the third flattest country in the world, you really have to be creative to camp at great heights. You have to create your own mountains.’ says Hugo van Donselaar, CEO of Campspace.com.

 

With over 600ft in height, the Euromast is the nation's tallest building and a city landmark.

 

Camping like a climber hanging from a skyscraper in Rotterdam

Hanging approx. 325 ft. in the air, guests slept on what is known as a portaledge; a deployable hanging tent system designed for rock climbers who spend multiple days and nights on a big wall climb.

 

Professional hikers installed three portaledge tents below the towers’ panorama restaurant.

Guests abseil their way down towards their Campspace.

 Guests enjoyed amazing views over the city of Rotterdam before trying to get some sleep.

The Dutch startup is often described as the ‘AirBnB for camping’; allowing private landowners to list their property as a small campsite. ‘At Campspace we believe that a camping trip should always be an unforgettable experience. Whether it’s camping in someone’s backyard or hanging from a skyscraper.’ concludes Van Donselaar.
