Park Canada’s Oasis pods

Various locations

How about a night under the stars in one of Canada’s national parks? These six-square-metre teardrop-shaped Ôasis pods sleep a family of four, with a sofa bed on the main level and a hammock loft above. Launched in 2018, the compartments sit on wooden platforms or stilts, with amenities that include a battery-powered light, a food locker, a shelter with a picnic table, a barbecue, a fire pit and deck chairs at most locations. Guests bring their own sleeping bags and camping stuff. Pretty “out there” for the Canadian government, but definitely the cool fort you’ve always wanted.

Locations: At Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site in Ontario, Forillon National Park in Quebec, Kouchibouguac National Park and Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, Kejimkujik National Park in Nova Scotia, and Terra Nova National Park in Newfoundland.

Cost: From $128.
