FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions About Pan
FREEQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where is the gapahuk?
Along the entrance road, at the top of the mountain, there is a path to the left that leads you to PAN Gapahuk. Look for a black, round steel sign with PAN that is attached to a large stone on the left side of the road. Here there are benches and tables with seating for 12 people. In winter, there is a bonfire and firewood in the gapahuk.
I don't like heights. This is probably not for me?
PAN is an experience for everyone even though you might be a little sceptic when it comes to heights. The entrance goes through a spiral staircase with tight grids on all sides. This leads to a bridge with handrails on both sides before entering the cabin itself. If you still are a bit concerned, we recommend taking your stay in PAN 2. It lies more down in the terrain with the forest closer and you do not feel the height as massive as on PAN
Is it difficult to drive to PAN?
Driving through the woods in the middle of nowhere might seem a bit scary, but this is an important part of the experience. Leaving the asphalt and entering the gravel road is when your stay at PAN really starts. Here you will have an exciting five kilometres drive through the wilderness before you arrive at PAN. Please note that forest roads are not the same as public roads, so if you are traveling in the winter make sure you have a good car. A 4×4 i s recommended in case of sudden changes in the weather. If you want to experience the magic of PAN but are not comfortable driving yourself, we can arrange for a car to pick you up through our hotel pick up service.
How can I cook my food?
PAN has a state-of-the-art kitchen with electricity, water and everything you need for cooking. In the kitchen there is equipment for every dish, easy or advanced. Outside there is a bonfire pan, but it is removed during dry periods and during the bonfire ban period. Then there will be a barbecue at the service building that guests can use instead.

Is there electricity and water in the cabins?
Comfort is an important part of our experience at PAN! Therefore both cabins have electricity and water. The shower in the bathroom has a rainfall shower to give the feeling of having the nature indoors.
How is the situation for disabled people?
Due to safety reasons you need to be able to get in and out by yourself. So if you have problems walking the stairs, a stay at PAN might be a challenge.
Are the cabins safe?
Safety has been the most important key point in building the cabins! The construction has been extensively tested by an external company and the cabins are measured to withstand more strain than the equivalent of a double hurricane. Safety measures have also been made in case of thunder and lightning. Precise safety assessments have been made by the project’s architect and engineer and a stay at PAN Tree Top cabins is perfectly safe as long as you follow the safety recommendations, rules and regulations.
Are the cabins cold and dreary when we arrive?
All the floors have underfloor heating so the temperature in the cabin is always good. If you arrive at a time that coincides with our preparations in the cabin, we will light a fire in the fireplace for you.
Will the cabin feel small and cramped?
PAN tree top cabins are 40m. The cabins are very well utilized with many space-saving solutions. The cabins are divided into three different areas so you will be able to have your privacy.
Is it possible to order food?
We deliver breakfast, lunch and dinner made from local products. All food is ordered in our booking system and must be done minimum one week before check in.
Where is the nearest grocery store?
PAN is 10 km away from the nearest grocery store called Joker Kjellmyra. Our town centre, Flisa, is 15 km from the cabins. Flisa is a small town where you will find a good selection of grocery stores, a mall and quaint little boutique shops
How do I get to the cabins?
After booking a stay with us, we will send you road descriptions and other useful information.
We drive an electric car – can it be charged during the stay?
At the technical house near the cabins there is an outlet that can be used for charging. There is a limited amount of electricity at the cabins, so if there is more el-cars the outlet needs to be shared.
Can more than six people stay in the cabin?
Due to safety reasons, we do not allow that the number of people staying in one cabin exceed six people. There are six beds per cabin – a double bed and four single beds. The single beds have foam mattresses, so the best sleeping comfort is for a maximum of four adults. Then two mattresses can be used per single bed.
Is a stay at PAN Tree Top Cabins safe for children?
PAN is a great place for children. However, children must be supervised. Remember, you are 8 meters above ground.
Are there dangerous animals at Finnskogen?
Despite the fact that Finnskogen has a rare and exciting kingdom of various species such as wolf, bear, lynx and moose, this is not to be considered a danger. These animals fear people and they flee immediately should you come across them in the forest.
Is PAN Tree Top Cabins suitable for a company?
It certainly is! In addition to PAN Tree Top Cabins, we have an old timber cabin with ten beds. This cabin has wi-fi and everything you need for a corporate gathering. We can also tailor activities and arrangements for you!
How about outdoor activities?
Finnskogen is an eldorado for all types of outdoor activities. With many lakes and a hunting ground of 160,000 acres, there are excellent opportunities for guide tours with experienced guides to see animal trackings of wolf, elk, owl etc. We can also organize hunting and fishing trips. Contact us for an exciting experience with some of our skilled guides.
How far apart are the two cabins?
PAN 1 and PAN 2 are 100 meters apart and they are exactly the same when it comes to the design.
PAN remains open as normal throughout the Covid 19 crisis. The cabins are carefully cleaned and desinfected after use. Our cabins have electricity and water with kitchen, wc, rain shower and tiled bathroom. This makes cleaning easy and even through these challenging times.
Can we come and look at the cabins?
PAN is an exclusive concept for the guests and we want to offer as much peace and quiet as possible. Therefore it is not possible for anyone other than paying guests to stay in the area. The road is closed with a barrier and it is not allowed to enter the area without special agreements with the owners.
Can I take photos of the cabins?
Taking pictures of the cabins is of course perfectly ok and we encourage all our guests to post pictures on social media! Taking photos for commercial purposes must be clarified with the owners.
