A treehouse is every kid’s favorite hideaway. And now, with Sweden’s Treehotel, there are seven redefined treehouses that will excite the child in even the most sophisticated adult.
The Blue Cone: Not-so-blue.
Hidden in the boreal forest of the Lule River Valley, each treehouse is the whimsical design of different architects. The elevated suites are suspended 13 to 20 feet above the ground and offer spectacular views of the river, valley, and perhaps even the Northern Lights for lucky guests. These treerooms are accessible by ramp, bridge, or electric stairs.
The Bird’s Nest: Birds of a feather flock together.
The MirrorCube: Need some time to reflect?

What also makes Treehotel stand apart is its eco-consciousness and focus on sustainability. They cut no trees during construction, neither did they use harmful chemicals and substances in treating the wood. Each room has either a combustion toilet or a freezing-toilet, both of which are completely odorless and powered by the electricity generated by a nearby hydroelectric plant. All of this poses no adverse impact on nature.

Meals are served at Britta’s Pensionat in an authentic 1930s to 1950s setting, or guests can choose to eat in their rooms. There is also a bar and a sauna.
And if you can drag yourself away from your very own treehouse, available activities include hiking, white water adventure, fishing, ziplining, skiing, snowmobiling, and more.
