Treehotel

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. From the Treehotel’s rooms you get a fantastic view of the Lule River valley, miles of forest and the powerful river.

Each treeroom is a unique creation by Scandinavia’s leading architects. The modern design combined with the quiet of the forest creates an instant feeling of luxurious relaxation.

Choose to stay in one of the following treerooms (depending on availability):

The Cabin (in the picture):
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, bathroom (no shower) and terrace.

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 (no shower), and living area. You enter the Bird’s Nest with the help of a retractable staircase.

The Blue Cone:
The Blue Cone is based on simplicity and accessibility, both in terms of material and design. The room is a traditional wooden structure with three foundations in the ground to give a sense of height and lightness, but also stability.

You access the room via a bridge from the nearby mountain. The bridge is well suited for people with disabilities. The exterior consists of laminated birch wood, the interior of timber. The treeroom is 22m² and has four beds, separate sleeping loft, bathroom (no shower) and living room.

The UFO:
While working on the Bird’s Nest, which is largely in harmony with its surroundings, the idea of creating an entirely different environment was born. And what could be more different than an UFO?

The room is cast in durable composite material – all to create the lightest, yet strong and sustainable design possible. The interior gives the room a modern and comfortable feel over two floors. The UFO is built for four people, two adults and two children, with separate bedrooms, bathroom (no shower) and living area. 30m² is all you need for a comfortable escape to childhood dreams.

The Mirrorcube:
The Mirrorcube is an exciting hide-out among the trees, camouflaged by mirrored walls that reflect their surroundings. The dimensions are 4×4×4 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 (no shower), lounge, and rooftop terrace. A 12-meter-long bridge leads up to the treeroom.

Note: None of the treerooms have showers. There is one shower in the tree sauna that guests can use free of charge and there are also 6 showers at Brittas Guest House.

Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are generally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately (some hotels have double beds though). Unless otherwise specified all rooms have private bathroom facilities, which are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be formed by a double room with an extra bed. As a result space may be restricted.

Unless otherwise clearly specified a standard room/cabin is included in the tour price.
