These Wooden Orbs Are Like Hobbit Holes In The Sky

Diply 13 Apr 2017

We're living in an exciting time. There are hotels all over the world made of ice, glass huts in Finland where guests can view the northern lights, and even these things called tiny houses. Just when you thought life in 2017 couldn't get any better, we're about to add one more quirky experience to the list.

They're called "Free Spirit Spheres," and they're Canada's version of floating hobbit holes, we swear. Here, let us show you why.

These floating orbs are called "Free Spirit Spheres." They're located about fifty miles west of Vancouver, Canada.

On the inside, they look like a hobbit hole. It's as if one jumped out of the ground and suspended itself in the trees.

All of them are suspended by three Polysteel ropes tethered to nearby trees, and require implanted wooden steps to access.

Each one weighs about a ton, and surprisingly doesn't move too much with the wind because of its tethers.
