If you are looking for a place to be with nature, a place to hide from your tensions, a place of adventures visits Treehotel in Sweden. Treehotel offers a unique hotel experience: treerooms with contemporary design in the middle of unspoiled nature. Here you can forget about the time constraints of everyday life, enjoy the serenity, and rejuvenate in a sophisticated yet familiar environment.
Treehotel is located in Harads, near the Lule river, about 100 kilometers from Luleå airport (Luleå Airport is located about 7 km south-southeast of Luleå, Sweden.). The most striking part of Harads is its magnificent surroundings. From Treehotel’s rooms you get a fantastic view of the Lule River valley, miles of forest and the powerful river. Treehotel was inspired by the film ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophic story about the significance of trees for us human beings.
The idea behind Treehotel is to offer high-standard accommodation in a harmonious place where daily stress melts away. Guests can relax and renew their energy while surrounded by unspoiled nature. Together with some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, Treehotel created uniquely designed “treerooms.” The rooms are suspended 4-6 meters above ground – all with spectacular views of the Lule River. A very important part of Treehotel is to consider ecological values and make minimal environmental impact.
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 aluminum frame around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass.
The interior is made from plywood with a birch surface. The six windows provide a stunning panoramic view. A 12-meter-long bridge leads up to the tree room. The Mirrorcube offers excellent accommodation for two people with a double bed, toilets, lounge and a rooftop terrace. Showers and sauna are located in two separate buildings close by. All tree rooms have free WiFi.
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, toilets, and living area. Showers and sauna are located in two separate buildings close by. All tree rooms have free WiFi.
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.
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, toilets and a rooftop terrace.
