Britta and Kent offer you a warm welcome to Treehotel
An all year round experience, living close to nature in a place of great natural beauty. Treehotel is where joyful childhood memories can now be relived in a more comfortable and sophisticated environment. Treehotel opened in July 2010 and is located in the forests of Swedish Lapland, just 1hr from Luleå airport.
Treehotel has been constructed in The Boreal Forest, deep in Swedish Lapland, with stunning views over the Luleå River valley. The Boreal Forest is one of Earth's lungs and it is our responsibility to look after it. By building Treehotel, the forest can be appreciated for its nature, beauty and hospitality and protected from industrial purposes.
Open all year round with long warm summer days and 24hr daylight, to cold magical white winters, Treehotel and Lapland is worth a visit at any time, complemented by a comprehensive program of activities and excursions.
Treehotel has been inspired by the documentary film, Trädälskaren (The Treelover) by Johan Selberg Augustsen. A story of 3 men from a big city environment who make a philosophical film about what the tree means to humans, historically and culturally. The tree house they build is in Harads, the same village as Treehotel, and it is possible to stay in their tree house upon request.
Each room has been designed by a leading Swedish architect. All the rooms at Treehotel have electrical under floor heating. The electricity is from environmentally friendly sources, for example hydroelectric. You won't find any TV's at Treehotel, that defeats the whole object of the visit! Treehotel is all about the nature, silence and beauty of Swedish forests.
