Elevated Slumber in Scandinavia

Tucked away in a Northern Swedish forest is the Treehotel, located in Harads near the peaceful Lule River. Open since 2010, Britta and Kent Lindvall’s unconventional getaway was inspired by Jonas Selberg Augustsén’s documentary film Trädälskaren, in which three city dwellers venture into the wilderness to build a treehouse together.

After checking in at Brittas Pensionat — a vintage-style home with nine additional guest rooms and a restaurant — visitors are led down a quiet forest pathway to the unique “treerooms” suspended among 100-year-old pines and accessed by ladders and hanging walkways. The property has seven highly creative lodgings, each with a unique design by leading Scandinavian architects and built with minimal environmental impact.
