|Yurts have been a feature of life in the steppes of Central Asia for at least three thousand years.
A yurt is made of a latticework of wood or bamboo for walls, door frames, and a wheel or crown compression ring.
The design of the yurt developed from its ancient simple forms to actively integrate with Buddhist culture.
Made of the finest kiln-dried Douglas fir from sustainably managed forests, the Saltspring Yurt surrounds you with beautiful natural materials and a spacious feeling from the high dome ceiling topped with a skylight looking out into the tall surrounding forest.Home »
