ACTIVITIES:


Northern Lights Photography

A fantastic activity seen through a camera makes the experience many times better. This applies in particular to northern lights and images photographed under a star-lined sky. Your guide is the professional nature- and adventure photographer Håkan Hjort, who mainly has the taiga forest and the Arctic areas as his field of work. If you are interested he gives you tips on basic photography such as composition, exposure, lens selection and angles for taking pictures of northern lights and other phenomenon. Yes, maybe he can even photograph you with the northern lights in the background. We go to places where we have nice views to the north. The snow-covered forests, creeks and even the small forest roads make a great forefront to the night phenomenon, which takes place in the sky. With the help of the car, we can quickly move between different photo locations. Cameras with super wide-angle zoom are what we usually use to capture the night’s spectacle, of course with the camera on a tripod. You keep the memory card with the photos from the photo tour.



Nature Hike in Ecopark

A local Sami guide takes you on a 3 hour hike that is adapted to your level, experience and condition. During the hike our Sami nature guide guides you in animal tracks, wildlife, nature and local sami culture. The hike goes along a mountain ridge to a beautiful viewpoint.You will also visit a beautiful forest lake, this naturehike will offer a lot of photo oportunities. Swedish homebaked Fika and snacks are served during the hike so that your mood and blood sugar levels are on top.



Wildlife Photography

During the trip we look for moose, reindeer and birds to capture. We take the car to find the best photo locations for the day. Your guide is a professional wildlife and adventure photographer who works in the taiga and the arctic area. He will teach you the best ways to take great pictures in the arctic and show you his favorite spots in the area. We will stop at a few different locations to explore the nature’s diversity with our cameras. The snowshoes can be used if we are to follow a stream in the deep snow. If we are lucky we might see tracks of the rare otter. In an unspoiled spot we will enjoy warm beverage and home baked pastry.



Husky Sled Ride / Horse Riding

Husky Sled Ride: Experience the feeling of sliding in a snowy, untouched and quiet winter landscape sitting on the reindeer fur on the guide sled. Take part of the teamwork and the trust between the driver and our happy and enthusiastic dogs who love to work in front of the sled in their right element. Horse Riding: Seeing our nature riding on a horse is a fantastic way to experience something unique. When you arrive at the ranch you will meet a fantastic team who will give you all the instructions you need before going out on your horse. They will make sure you have the right equipment and show you how to saddle a horse. During the day you will ride through forest, experience unique nature and wonderful views on the calm horse. We will also stop for a nice meal by an open fire.


Snowmobile Safari

Expedition starts in the morning with an educational part where your guide will inform you about safety and how to handle the touring snow mobiles. Then we will start our journey passing through forest landscapes with different characters of nature, moors and thick snowcovered pine forest. After some hours of driving we will stop for an outdoor lunch, sitting around the campfire on warm reindeer skins. Chances to see mooses, reindeers and other wildlife are normally good.



Ice Fishing

Our fishing guide will teach you the tricks of the trade and show you his favourite ice fishing spots on a private forest lake.



Cross Country Skiing / Snow Biking / Snowshoe Hiking

Cross Country Skiing: On this lovely ski tour you will make a half day, 3 hour tour in the forest area looking at animal tracks and learn about the boreal forests of Lapland. Halfway we make a stop for outdoor fika. After our break we will continue through the spectacular landscapes in the huge pine forests. Great opportunities to spot moose in the Winter landscape and black grouse. Snow Biking: And you are in for an exclusive experience. Biking on snow, through the old woods and open meadows, maybe seeing moose and reindeers. Biking on the frozen Lule river and areas you can’t cross in the summer is the freedom of biking during winter. The tour starts from the Arctic Bath in Harads after a short introduction on how to bike on a fatbike. About half way we take a break to fuel up with some tea and home baked pastry before taking on the last part of the tour. Fatbike is like a mountainbike but with balloon tires that makes it easier to bike on soft surfaces. And much more fun since you reach areas you can’t reach otherwise. Fatbike is discovered by more and more people. Snowshoe Hiking:  Snowshoes, the easy way to get out on an adventure. We will, in a wonderful and pleasant way, discover the forests and the beautiful environment along the river without much effort. “If you can walk then you can walk with snowshoes”. The tour starts from the Arctic Bath in Harads. Depending on the ice conditions and the amount of snow we start directly from the hotel or take the car for a maximum of 10 minutes. We have several nice areas close by for our little venture on snowshoes. During the hike we will take a break to fuel up with some tea and home baked pastry before taking on the last part of the tour. The taiga forest that we explore extends across the entire northern hemisphere. With a little luck we can see both moose as well as reindeer. Perhaps even the birds of the forest that winters in this cold climate.

More than simply cabins tucked away in a forest, the rooms at this contemporary treehouse hotel in Harads are marvels of engineering and works of art, designed with sustainability principles in mind. Whether you’re relaxing on the net patio of the Seventh Room, or gazing out over the forest from the Dragonfly, your stay will be exceptional, luxurious and truly memorable.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland Sunset
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Mirrorcube
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Mirrorcube Interior

The Mirrorcube

The Mirrorcube is a truly different tree room, a cube measuring 4x4x4 metres. The room is surrounded by mirror walls which both reflect and blend in with the surroundings. A tree trunk grows through the room and is enclosed by an aluminium frame, which forms the base of the room. All walls are covered in mirror glass. On the outside, this gives the illusion that the room is glass from floor to ceiling. However, on the inside, the walls are light plywood, with windows on three of them as well as on the ceiling. Which is a good thing, because on dark nights when the lights are on, you can actually sense that there is someone moving behind the pieces of mirror glass that are not covered by walls.

Another exciting detail hidden behind the mirror facade is a balcony that allows you to go outside the box without being seen. The Mirrorcube provides excellent accommodation for two guests. Here, you will find a double bed, a toilet and seating where you can socialise. All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. If you are planning a stay, you may want to know that the way up to the room is a sometimes-swaying suspension bridge, reminiscent of childhood playgrounds. The Mirrorcube room was designed by Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård and built by a local Harads company.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Birds Nest
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Birds Nest Interior

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 Bird’s Nest room was created to blend in with the surrounding environment as much as possible. A room for introspection rather than extroversion. Here, you can really become at one with nature and have more time to yourself – in a gigantic treetop bird’s nest that no one else can see into. You climb into the Bird’s Nest via a ladder and through a hatch in the floor. You then close the hatch, leaving the rest of the world outside.

Even though it is a compact room with small windows, it is perceived as remarkably bright, thanks to the interior decor and the windows which both let light in and offer you a way to look out. The room is popular amongst families with children, but also suitable for 4 adults. You may want to know that two of the beds are curved to follow the walls. Those of you staying in this room will have to leave large suitcases in the luggage room of the main building – something you will appreciate when carrying your luggage up and down the ladder and through the hatch. The room measures 17 sq. m and sliding doors can be used to provide separate bedrooms. In this room you will find a toilet and cushioned seating by the windows where you can enjoy the view. All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. The Bird’s Nest was designed by Bertil Harström, who also designed the UFO and our saunas.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Cabin
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Cabin Interior

The Cabin

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 Cabin is one of our most romantic rooms. This double room is shaped like a capsule, on view amongst the trees as you walk up the trail from our main building. Its location has been chosen so as to create a platform at the top of a steep slope overlooking the Lule River valley. As a guest, this gives you a majestic view from the room and also a remarkable entrance. A long bridge leads up from ground level, to a door seemingly hovering in mid-air.

Behind the door lie the stairs down to the room and a balcony with seating. Over the years, this is a place that many happy couples have chosen for proposals and even wedding vows. The room hangs in a slightly askew way, underneath the deck. This is done partially to minimise its volume but also to give the room its very own character. Inside the room, the bed is placed at the centre and there are large windows offering a high-altitude view of the forest and the river. By the windows, you will find comfortable seating. The Cabin is a 24 sq. m. room, spacious enough for two people, with a double bed, a toilet and a terrace.

All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. The Cabin was designed by Mårten and Gustav Cyrén.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland Northern Lights
Treehotel Swedish Lapland
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The 7th Room Interior

7th room

As you near the seventh room from below and look up at the sky, the entire underside of the building is covered by a life size photograph of the treetops as they looked before the room was put in place. This clever camouflage piques one’s curiosity. What is hiding up there? This is our seventh and newest room, a suite designed to have different ‘experience levels’. The underside of the room shows a life-size photo of the pine tree tops as they looked before the room was here. The stairs leading up to the room have several storeys with vantage points.

Inside the room you will find panoramic windows facing the river valley and the northern lights – the bedrooms have skylight windows for you to view the bright summer night sky. At the centre of the room there is a terrace, formed by a net floor with a naturally growing pine in the middle. Through the net floor you can see 10 metres below you and behind a transparent railing lies the vast expanse of the Lule River Valley. A breath taking, awe-inspiring and perfectly safe place to be. Also, it is practically mosquito-free, since mosquitoes don’t usually fly this high. The room has a total size of 100 sq. m. whereof the accommodation takes up 75 sq. m. Here you will find five beds, two bedrooms with two beds each and one 120 cm extra bed in the lounge. There is a bathroom and a shower with eco-friendly features.

All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. The room is dominated by Scandinavian wooden interiors and textiles. The facade is a burnt wood finish, completely unlike that of the other rooms. Something that makes the 7th Room particularly cosy is a temperature-controlled fireplace that lights itself below a certain temperature on cool winter nights. For summer stays, the room has built in AC, but you can also feel the summer breeze by opening the large sliding doors that face the net terrace, both from the lounge and the two bedrooms. The 7th Room was designed by Norwegian firm, Snöhetta.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland UFO
Treehotel Swedish Lapland Snow

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 UFO was designed to be the most unexpected thing you can encounter in the forest. And what could possibly be more unexpected than a UFO hovering amongst the trees? The room contrasts sharply with the camouflaged bird’s nest by the same architect, Bertil Harström. The room has been cast in a high-strength composite material in order to create a construction that is light yet as durable as possible.

Inside the UFO you are taken to a space-inspired world with a starry sky in the ceiling and an interior and textiles designed according to the same theme. The room has small windows which let light in and allow you to look out. Here, you can also feel the UFO move, as it is suspended on wires and beams connected to the trees. The UFO has room for five people, with one double bed and three single beds. It is one of our most popular family rooms, however, it is also suitable for groups of adults, provided that the people sleeping in the single beds are not very tall. All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. You enter the UFO using an electric, collapsible ladder through a hatch in the floor. As with the Bird’s Nest, large suitcases will have to stay in the luggage room.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Dragonfly
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Dragonfly

Dragonfly

With its 52 square metres and 22 metric tonnes, the Dragonfly is without a doubt our biggest room. Unique in many ways, this room can function both as a conference space as well as private suite. The Dragonfly is our second-largest room, at 52 sq. m. and 22 tons. The room is primarily used for private accommodation, but can also be used for small conferences of up to 6 participants. Here you will find four beds in two bedrooms, one with a view of the Lule River Valley from the bed and the other facing the calm, wind-whispering forest. A 15-metre ramp takes you up to the Dragonfly and ends at a small patio outside the door. This too has been the site of many proposals and engagements over the years.

Inside the room, large panoramic windows offer a view of the river valley. In some places, the light falls in a way that almost gives you the illusion of being able to touch the trees outside. Even in the bathroom, with its own shower, you have an amazing view of tall pines and the Lule River. All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. The room is a wooden construction with a metal facade which has taken on a rusty brown shade, allowing the room to blend in amongst the pines. The Dragonfly is spacious enough for two couples, four friends, a family, or as a social space for a larger group staying in other rooms. The Dragonfly room was designed by Finnish architect firm Rintala Eggertsson.

Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Blue Cone
Treehotel Swedish Lapland The Blue Cone Interior

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. The Blue Cone is built around ease and simplicity, both when it comes to material choices and design. With its spaciousness and beautiful view, it is a highly appreciated room. The room is a traditional wooden construction with three pillars on the ground, to give sense of height and lightness whilst also providing stability. The terrain below the room is sloped, which adds to the sensation of being high up. The long, lightly sloping ramp from the other side of the building up to the entrance means that the room is accessible also to those of you who have a disability. In addition, the room has an extra spacious and thus accessible toilet. 

All of the Treehotel tree rooms have incinerating toilets and our sustainable Rukkamoinika water system with 3 litres of water for washing your hands. Inside the room you will find a double bed where you can wake up with the spectacular view at your feet. A reflective mirror behind the bed doubles the view. You can sit in front of the large window and enjoy the surrounding environment. The room also has a sleeping loft with two single beds. The exterior consists of pinewood shingle, a material traditionally used to cover the roofs of old houses in the area. But how come a room named the Blue Cone is bright red? There are many stories behind the name. One is that architect Thomas Sandell used Blue Cone as a working name but that he, during the process, found a red colour so beautiful that he decided to go with that instead. Another is the fact that Mirrorcube was going to be its nearest neighbour, which meant that he felt it needed a different colour to stand out more. If you ask us, the colour is beautiful and the brightly colourful, natural material is a perfect contrast to the smooth, shiny surfaces of the neighbouring room.

The restaurant began with Britta’s Pensionat, a unique guesthouse in the quaint village of Harads in Northern Sweden. Britta’s Pensionat is where it all happens, and owners Kent and Britta Lindvall ensure that everyone is well watered and fed. The food is delicious and homely, served buffet-style, and everyone sits together comparing notes on the day’s adventures. The restaurant is a significant part of being at one with our spectacular Swedish nature. We offer all kinds of local Swedish delicacies from the northern pantry, whether it’s wild game or our finest hand-picked berries. Taste the highest quality food of the current season and enjoy the creative simplicity of local produce. Our chefs will tell you exactly what’s on the table and offer a personalized experience tailored to your dining needs.

Our chefs passion for food and the best local products Sweden has to offer, Treehotel now has the highest quality catering to match its guest service experience. The chefs ability to create a variety of unique dishes from the local produce made it the perfect fit for us. Delicious home cooking done by Britta and served in the cosy wooden dining room at the Pensionat, draws on local ingredients from arctic char to moose or reindeer with blueberry cheesecake a favourite pudding.  If you are lucky Kent might offer you a nip of his home-made birch vodka.  Breakfast is both buffet with cheeses and fruits and eggs to order. There are coffee machines and minibars in all the tree houses.
