Treehotel

If there is ever a place that epitomizes going back to the simple imagination of childhood, it’s Sweden’s Treehotel. Located in Harads, about an hour by car from Kallax airport, the one-of-a kind eco-retreat provides views of the Lule River and the beautiful lush forest 360 degrees around. Inspired by the film “The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen, Treehotel is a celebration of the significance of trees to human beings, allowing our harmony with nature to be rebalanced and restored.

Each tree room has it’s own theme, designed by leading Scandinavian architects ranging from The Mirrorcube to The UFO to The Bird’s Nest. Built with every modern environmental consideration in mind, guests are able to rest, relax and reflect in the serenity of nature high among the tree tops, some up to 20 feet above ground. But sleeping in your very own modern tree house is only one part of the Treehotel experience. There are also plenty of activities during each of the four seasons that guests can partake in, if you feel so inclined. And I certainly would, when the experience is a guided tour by snowmobile in the middle of winter to see the Northern Lights. Follow that with sleeping in The Mirrorcube and a trip to The Tree Sauna and I’m more than sold. Sign. Me. Up.

The Treehotel is undeniably unique; a thoughtfully designed experience with minimal environmental impact and maximum imagination.

Check out the each unique tree room below. I dare you to not dream of this place and count the days till you can experience it yourself. I know I am! Jump over to their site for more info and more breathtaking images of the rooms with modern interiors to go with.
