Have you always dreamt of sleeping in a tree house under the stars in the middle of the forest? I know I have & maybe that dream will come true soon enough! A few years ago I discovered this amazing TreehotelIt's located in  Harads, Sweden near the Lule River, about seven miles from the airport. The village has a population of about 600 and features a restaurant, shop and guest house. The most striking part of Harads is its magnificent surroundings. From your room you get a fantastic view of the Lule River valley, miles of forest and the powerful river. Donovan & I have recently talked about our honeymoon options and we surely wouldn't mind traveling through Scandinavia, staying in a birds nest in the middle of the forest...... I can smell pine just thinking about it!

The Concept

Why not create a hotel that gives people a chance to experience nature amongst the tree-tops, while also providing a uniquely designed housing experience? These questions led to the creation of Treehotel in Harads – a place where nature, ecological values, comfort and modern design are combined for an exciting adventure. Treehotel was inspired by the film ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. It’s a tale of three men from the city who want to go back to their roots by building a tree house together. “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, we created our 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 our concept is to consider ecological values and make minimal environmental impact. For this reason we devote considerable resources to finding sustainable construction and energy solutions.
