Accessed by a wooden treetop bridge and offering a double bed, bathroom and terrace, The Cabin looks more top secret spy hideout than a hotel room. With spectacular views of the Lule River and a location high on a sharp hillside, this room is ideal for the daring traveller.
Encased in reflective glass to mirror its magnificent surroundings, The Mirrorcube houses a double bed, bathroom and a rooftop terrace perfect for wildlife spotting. The inside walls are covered with a birch-surfaced plywood, and there are also six expertly-placed windows so guests can take in the views while retaining a sense of privacy.
“The tree has a central role in the history of mankind; a reminder of ancient wisdom. A stay here is an opportunity to experience true silence and harmony with nature.”
Kent Lindvall, Treehotel co-founder
The Bird’s Nest
The Bird’s Nest looks like a blackbird gathered twigs and built a home in the canopy, but upon entering, the room is minimal and spacious. It is accessed by a retractable staircase and its two separate bedrooms make it ideal for a getaway with family or friends.
The Blue Cone
Although neither blue nor cone-shaped, The Blue Cone is a study in unexpected contrasts. Its fire engine red façade is a foil to the soft and light interiors that evoke the tranquility of a snowy Scandinavian winter.
Reminiscent of vintage sci-fi films and found suspended from the trees is The UFO, a most realistic structure that is sure to startle any passerby. This treeroom stays true to the hotel’s outlook on sustainable design, thanks to its shell made of durable composite material. It’s designed to accommodate five.
Rounding out the treeroom offerings is the The Dragonfly, the property’s most spacious, which functions as a private suite or a conference room for up to 12 people.
Indeed, to sleep under the stars amidst a sea of trees is an unforgettable experience, no matter the season, and a reminder of the importance of reconnecting with our natural surroundings.
