Treehotel

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

If you’re looking for a unique and eco-friendly vacation experience, consider staying at Treehotel in Harads, Sweden. The hotel features a series of cabins that are suspended high in the trees of a pine forest. Each cabin has been designed to blend in with the surrounding environment and offer a comfortable and stylish place to stay. You’ll have a range of cabin options to choose from, including some that look like birds’ nests and others that resemble tiny houses or spaceships. The treehouses were designed by a range of architects and design firms, including Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, Snøhetta, Bertil Harström and Mikael Genberg, with the latest addition being a wondrous creation by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group. Each cabin has its own unique design, inspired by the surrounding natural environment and the creative vision of the architects and designers who worked on it.

What are the rooms like?

Treehotel’s seven cabins include the Biosphere (which opened in 2022), created by Bjarke Ingels Group to attract local birds through the façade containing 350 bird nests; the Bird’s Nest, designed by Bertil Harström and shaped like a giant bird’s nest; the Cabin, a minimalist rectangular design by Kent Lindvall and Johan Kauppi; the Mirrorcube, a cube-shaped structure covered in reflective glass by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter; the UFO, a spaceship-shaped cabin by Mikael Genberg; and the Blue Cone, a tall cone-shaped structure with a blue exterior by Tomasson Toonen. The cabins at Treehotel come equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable stay, including a toilet, underfloor heating, electricity, air conditioning, and a coffee maker and water kettle. You’ll also have access to fresh drinking water, a refrigerator and WiFi. Plus, a sustainable Rukkamoika water system provides three litres of water for washing your hands.
