Yurt Rentals ~ for all occasions
We provide a unique and environmentally friendly alternative to vinyl sided wall tents. Yurts are suitable for any event where the organizers want to create “something special”. Yurts can be used for a variety of purposes including weddings, festivals, conferences, family celebrations and community events.
The symbolic circular architecture provides an intimate and unifying space,
everyone to see each other and connect in a more personal way. By choosing a yurt for your event, you will be making an environmentally friendly choice which supports local well managed woodlots and utilises natural materials.
Why chose a yurt for your event?
• Enchanting yet versatile a yurt offers a unique space for any special event.
• There are no flapping canvases, guy ropes, or central support poles. The canvas walls can be easily zipped opened for better viewing and ventilation
• Our Egyptian cotton canvas is 100% water proof and is tested to current Canadian Fire Standards.
• No chance of a yurt blowing down, they have been tried and tested for over 1000 years to withstand high winds and heavy snow loads.
• Unlike a pole tent, yurts can be fitted with a solid door and the dense lattice frame prevents entry through the walls, ensuring personal belongings and equipment will stay safe.

We provide four traditional Moroccan lanterns, which hang from the central wheel. Perimeter mini lights wrap around the circumference of the yurt. Both the lanterns and mini lamps provide beautiful evening lighting in the yurt. Please note we do not provide extension cord for lighting requirments.
The flooring is a roll out coconut husk herringbone weave flooring. It helps to prevent moisture and creates a more comfortable space by leveling out bumpy ground. It rolls out in sections and gives you a feeling of being in an enclosed space.
We are one of the few companies that offer an affordable floor. Please note our flooring is not a wooden floor. Some people choose to put a wooden dance floor on our flooring or build their own from plywood if they have “serious dancers”!
The Palace Yurt is 850 square feet and 33 feet in diameter and the Champagne Yurt is 650 square feet and 28 feet in diameter. The Workshop Yurts are 250 square feet and 17 feet in diameter. Our seating plans are too scale and use a combination of 5 ft and 6 ft round tables or 8 ft or 6 ft rectangle tables. Our seating plans allow one foot space behind every pulled out chair. We can customize your seating plan according to your needs. Click here to see seating plans.
The Palace Yurt takes two days to set up, and the Champagne Yurt takes one full day to set up. The Workshop Yurts takes a few hours. For a typical Saturday wedding, the minimum two-day rental allows us to set up the Palace yurt on Wednesday and Thursday. This would give you all day Friday to set up tables, decorations, etc. The yurt must be empty by 10 am on Sunday for us to take it down. It would be an extra $150 per day thereafter.
The Palace & Champagne Yurts need to be erected on flat and even ground. Ensure that your chosen area is not more than 1 foot off from level over the entire diameter. To ensure that the Palace yurt will fit in your chosen space, measure a rope to 18 feet (15 feet for the Champagne Yurt) and place a peg in the middle of where you want the yurt to be. Follow the rope around in a circle to make sure the ground is flat and even.
The Palace Yurt is 22 ft high in the centre and 6.5 ft high at the walls. The Champagne Yurt is 13 ft high in the centre and 6.5 ft high at the walls. We will need a minimum of 36 ft diameter for set up and tear-down. If you wish to set up the Palace Yurt and The Champagne together the two diameters need to be side by side in your choosen location.
Please note: We must be able to have direct access to your chosen spot. If we are not able to unload within 50 feet, extra charges for set up will apply.
Removing Canvas Walls
The two front canvas walls of the palace and champagne yurts can be zipped off which provides enhanced ventilation and viewing. Our workshop yurts can have one canvas wall zipped off. The simple zipper design is easy to use so you can open and close the walls after we have gone. We request that you zip up the walls after your wedding actvities to ensure that potential high winds do not enter the yurt.
Our travel costs are $95 for every 100 kms (round trip). Travel costs are subject to change without notice.
