Set just outside the small village of Harads, 60 km south of the Arctic Circle, the Treehotel enables guests to slow down, switch off and breathe more deeply. With the help of some visionary architects, owners Britta and Kent Lindvall have created a slice of magic that not only combines childhood fantasy with comfort and sophistication but does so with the lightest of environmental footprints.

The individual “treerooms”, are as diverse as could be, and are constructed to give comfort and yet respect the surrounding natural beauty. Having interesting names like ,“The Mirrorcube”, “The Bird’s Nest”, “The UFO”, “Blue Cone” and “The Cabin”, they are each unique and each one provides a phenomenal view of the forest and the Lule River. There are plans to have as many as 24 rooms eventually in the complex.
