Treehotel

The Treehotel is one of the most unique design-led hotels you will ever stay in; a choice of a treehouse ranging from a Bird's Nest to a UFO. Set in the stunning wilds of Swedish Lapland, it is a perfect destination for winter fun or summer adventures.

Treehotel
  • One of the most unique design-led hotels in the world with a stunning selection of tree-houses

  • Perfect to visit for winter adventures in the snow, or summer experiences such as horse riding or mountain biking

  • Set in a beautiful location in northern Sweden

  • Perfect to combine in winter with the Ice Hotel and in the summer with Stockholm


There are simply few hotels that can match the Treehotel's concept; to create a retreat that combines the chance to explore the unrivalled beauty of northern Sweden with rooms that are utterly unmatched in the terms of their ambitious design.

Top designers were asked to create their idea of a unique 'tree-room' and what they came up just beggars belief. The Mirrorcube is camouflaged by mirrors on all sides high up in the pine canopy. If you were just wondering that birds might not be able to see it, they have clad it in infra-red film that only birds and not humans can see - which just shows the cleverness in the design of the Treehotel. Next, The Bird's Nest's exterior is beautifully woven with wooden branches, yet inside you find a spacious living area and is accessed by a retractable staircase. The UFO is equally wacky, and easily has enough space to allow two children in the room (your children will love you forever if they could stay in a UFO). What is more fun than raising up your retractable staircase with smoke pluming up from the forest floor. The Cabin and Blue Cone are more traditional tree-houses, yet merge perfectly with the surrounding pine forest.

Without using any chemicals, or having chopped down any trees, the Treehotel has been carefully thought out from an eco-sustainable point of view, in-keeping with the stunning natural beauty all around it.

Britta’s pensionat has an authentic 1930-50’s setting and offers a restaurant, bar, sauna and relaxation area, TV, and internet - it is where all tree dwellers meet in the evening to sit by the crackling fire and talk about the adventures they have had that day.

Where the Treehotel really comes alive is the chance to explore by day - whether it is the summer or winter, there is so much to see and do. In the winter, you can visit a local Sami family and see their reindeer pastures before snowmobiling to Gorgim Lake, or take a dog-sled tour through pine forests - even showshoe, or try your hand at speedy skijoring (horse-pulled skiing). You can build your own igloo or ice fish in the Lule River. The highlight for many is snowmobiling off at night to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. The Treehotel also combines really well with a stay at the Ice Hotel for a perfect winter escape.

In the summer think horse riding, mountain biking, trekking, sea kayaking and fishing - an amazing array of experiences that get you out and about into Sweden's stunning landscapes.

The Cabin

The Cabin

This treeroom’s location was based on the idea of creating a platform high up on a sharp hillside overlooking the Lule River valley. You can reach the hut from here via a horizontal bridge among the trees. At the front of the bridge is a large wooden deck. Please note the stairs here are very steep and may not suit those with mobility issues.

The bridge is a long and interesting structure among the trees. The Cabin hangs slightly off-set, under the deck, partly to visually reduce the size and partly to give the tree room its own custom look.

The Cabin is like a capsule, a foreign body in the trees. The room is 24m² and accommodates two people, with a double bed, bathroom and terrace.

Britta’s Pensionat is open for Treehotel’s guests, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in an authentic 1930-1950’s setting. There’s a restaurant, bar, sauna and relaxation area, TV, and internet. When you arrive at Treehotel, you first check at Britta’s pensionat; then it’s a short stroll through the breathtaking nature to your treeroom.

The Mirrorcube
Best Seller

The Mirrorcube

The Mirrorcube is an exciting hide-out among the trees, camouflaged by mirrored walls that reflect their surroundings. The dimensions are 4x4x4 metres. The base consists of an aluminium frame around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass.

To prevent birds from flying into the mirrored walls, they have been clad with infrared film. The colour is invisible to humans, but visible to the birds.

The interior is made from plywood with a birch surface. The six windows provide a stunning panoramic view. The Mirrorcube offers excellent accommodation for two people with a double bed, bathroom and lounge. A 12-meter-long bridge leads up to the treeroom.

The Bird's nest

The Bird's nest

The Bird’s nest is built on the contrasts between the outside and inside. The treeroom’s exterior is nothing but a gigantic bird’s nest. It gives a camouflage so you quickly disappear and become part of the surroundings.

The interior, on the other hand, is familiar and exclusive. It’s a spacious environment where a family with two children can comfortably spread out. The walls are clad with wood panels and the windows almost disappear in the exterior’s network of branches. The room is 17m² and has separate bedrooms, bathroom, and living area. You enter the Bird’s Nest with the help of a retractable staircase. Please be aware that heavy suitcases can not be taken into the room here so you may have to pick out items to go into a smaller bag for your overnight stay.
