This mod-capsule-shaped cosy couples’ hideaway is suspended between two birch trees, with unobstructed views of the rural surroundings from floor-to-ceiling windows on one wall. You reach the treehouse via a suspended walkway; decor is simple in Scandinavian-chic style, with natural fabrics and a neutral white, cream and grey colour scheme – livened up with quirky light fixtures, and of course, the view. The minimal furnishings include a double bed, two cushion seats by the window and a small table. The bathroom has an eco-friendly toilet and there’s a terrace with seating on the roof. Each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
This is the hotel’s most intriguing design – and the one that’s graced the cover of most design magazines – a near-invisible floating cube with mirrored sides. The inside of the 4sq m cube-shaped treehouse – accessed using a suspended walkway – is lined with sanded timber, and is sparsely furnished. There’s a double bed, with storage underneath, and a table and two chairs, and a discreet terrace on the upper level, accessed by an indoor ladder. The ensuite has an eco-friendly toilet and the treehouse has large one-way windows so you can get an eyeful of the view.
This cosy cylindrical 17sq m treehouse, covered in fallen branches and twigs, looks as though it has been built by a man-eating prehistoric bird with an absurdist sensibility. Bonkers yet brilliant, this is ideal for a small family, with a double bed and bunks – covered in patchwork sheets – a small living area and an eco-friendly toilet. Porthole windows let you peek out at the view, and you enter the room using a retractable ladder. Each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
Despite its name, this two-storey treehouse – accessed by a low walkway – is a bright hue of scarlet on the outside; legend has it that it was supposed to be blue, but kept its name when plans deviated. However, once inside, interiors are serene and cosy, with white walls hung with animal skins, polished-timber flooring and a small seating area. Best suited for families, parents can sleep in a double bed on the lower level, and children sleep in twin beds on the upper level. Each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
This quirky 30sq m treehouse looks like an extra-terrestrial craft that’s crash-landed straight from a Fifties sci-fi movie. Accessed using a retractable ladder, this treehouse has a double bed and three single beds for children. Porthole windows and linens patterned with constellations and solar systems, make this ideal for mini space explorers. There’s also an eco-friendly toilet in the ensuite and each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
This 52sq m suite is the largest treehouse on the site, accessed by a 15-metre ramp. Designed by architects Rintala Eggertsson, the structure has a central chamber and two ‘wings’, and it’s lined in sheet metal, intended to rust and blend in to its surroundings. There are panoramic windows, a lounge, a dining room and two bedrooms, both with double beds. There’s a bathroom with an eco-friendly toilet, and each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
The underside of this cleverly camouflaged cabin is covered in life-size photographs of the pine treetops, and the outer walls are a black, charred wooden surface. Climb 10 metres up the industrial-style staircase to this spacious 100sq m stay, which is decorated in light Scandinavian woods and cosy decor, and has large north-facing windows with views of the Lule River. The spectacular patio has a large catamaran-style net (with a pine tree growing through the middle of it) on which you can spread out and listen to the sounds of the forest or watch the stars. Inside, there’s a large lounge area with a fireplace and a sofa bed, a shower room and a separate washroom. The two bedrooms both have skylights from which you may be able to spot the Northern Lights; one bedroom has a double bed and the other has two twins. Each treehouse has a mobile phone, minibar, kettle with a selection of teas and coffee, free bottled water, and air-conditioning.
