Treehotel Harads, Sweden
Scandinavian architecture meets the great outdoors in the futuristic treehouses at Treehotel. These five unique dwellings feature sleek design suspended among the native pines, blending with the environment so you feel part of the forest itself.
Go incognito in the Mirrorcube, which could easily be mistaken for a Bond villain’s lair, or disappear into the Bird’s Nest, an oversized construction of twigs and branches that manages to pull off looking bizarre and seriously cool at the same time. The Treesauna is the perfect refuge to unwind in. More treerooms are planned for the future, and we can’t wait to see what those look like.
- Sleeping in a glorious treehouse, built four-to-six metres above the ground in live trees
- The variety of tours on offer, from ice fishing, horse-pulled skiing and midnight rides (in the sun!)
- Catching a glimpse of the northern lights between slender tree trunks
- It’s a 10-minute walk between the tree houses and Britta’s pensionat where you have your meals, so make sure you have an extra wooly coat for those nights of -20°C
- It’s pricey for the lack of in-room services
- There’s no running water in rooms
