The Tubakuba Mountain Hub is an off-grid shelter that doesn't merely have an insanely cool name -- which translates to 'Tuba Cube' Mountain Hub by the way -- but is also highly functional and thoughtfully designed. Situated in the mountains of Bergen in Norway, the shelter is available for free to anyone who wants to use it for a night but is particularly aimed at young families.

The shelter provides spectacular views of the surrounding area. It doesn't have electricity or a toilet, further adding to the off-grid experience.

With technology taking over our lives, people are coming up with interesting ways to foster an appreciation for nature in kids. The Tubakuba Mountain Hub is a great example of how kids can be introduced to nature in a fun and family-focused context.
