THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR CAMPING

Make the smart choice for your next research project or outdoor adventure. Choose a SmartShelters camping shelter.

There’s nothing quite like the call of the New Zealand wild. We’re lucky enough to boast some of the world’s most stunning scenery, sitting there on our doorstep, ready to welcome us, for free, whenever we might feel the urge to explore it. Some of us are lucky enough to do so through work, whether through conservation organisations or the Ministry for the Environment.  But working or relaxing in the outdoors doesn’t often go hand in hand with comfort, particularly after the sun goes down. While a pop up tent or the back of a 4WD grant you protection from the rain and a small place to lie down, they don’t give you much more.

ASK US A QUESTION ABOUT OUR CAMPING SHELTERS

What is a good temporary hut for camping and hunting?

The SmartShelters habitat shelter is the evolution of transportable shelter, being specifically designed for sheltering people and equipment in harsh environments. It is easy to install, highly portable, and engineered to suit your specific application – our custom insulation fit-outs mean that these shelters can be used in polar climates, deserts, and everywhere in between.

But the key ingredient for campers and hunters is the ease of setup. Thanks to the unique design of the habitat shelter, an impressive structure can be erected in quick time. You can then spend more time doing whatever you’re in the wilderness to do, happy in the knowledge that you have a comfortable and roomy shelter to come back to.

How quickly can they be installed?

Given the levels of comfort and space that a SmartShelters habitat shelter offers, it can be easy to assume that it would take a long time to erect. But the truth is that the smart design of the shelter means that it is relatively quick and easy to install. 

The standard structure will take 2 people less than a day to set up, which, for a temporary base that offers levels of comfort and space that are comparable to home, is fast. If you’re happy in a pop up tent, the habitat shelter may not be for you. But if you’re someone who spends long stretches in the great outdoors, whether for work or play, and is looking for a transportable shelter with high levels of comfort and space, habitat shelters are the perfect solution.

What sizes are available?

SmartShelters habitat shelters are built to order, meaning that you can create and enjoy a shelter that perfectly suits your needs and wants.
