In seven nights, you experience seven different treetop accommodations, each notable for their distinctive design and placement. Each accommodation will be paired with activities and eating experiences linked to each room to complete this new Arctic adventure.

On the trip, you will indulge in multi-course meals with wine pairings, learn about the local Sami culture, and experience all that the forest has to offer from foraging to rejuvenating spa treatments, the Northern Lights and the star-filled Arctic sky. 

The Telegraph writes, “Owners Kent and Britta offer a friendly, personalized service; they take you up by foot through the woods to learn the trail and your luggage up by a van. There are snowmobiles and snowshoes in all sizes. There are two saunas and one hot tub. Classic Swedish massages are available on request. There is a zip line on-site and activities from moose safaris, ice-fishing, dog-sledding and photographing the northern lights to choose from.”

“The unique, visually stunning treehouses, each designed by a different architect (offer) spectacular views of surrounding Lapland scenery from the tree rooms,” says Jetsetter.

Arrive into Lulea Airport and transfer by helicopter into the forests – home to the Treehotel. Check into your first room in the pines The Dragonfly. This evening you will enjoy nature’s best with an outdoor dinner by the riverside.

With its 52 square meters and 22 metric tonnes, the Dragonfly is one of the bigger rooms. Unique in many ways, this room can function both as a conference space as well as a private suite.

A 15-meter long ramp takes you up to the Dragonfly, where big panoramic windows give you a magnificent view of the valley. It is built out of wood, with an exterior made out of sheet metal that will eventually turn rust-brown and blend in even further with the pine-tree forest. The design and the spectacular interiors are the makings of Rintala Eggertsson Architects.

The room is spacious enough to suit two couples, an entire family or a conference with seating for six persons. The room has all types of modern conference equipment, Wi-Fi, toilets, shower and air conditioning. 

Day 2 – The Blue Cone

Today you will learn all about the rich heritage of the Sami culture when you meet Lars Erikson, one of the last remaining forest Samis. Listen to storytelling and meet the reindeer that wander the farm. This evening enjoy a meal inspired by traditional Sami delicacies before a night in the cozy 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.

You access the room via a bridge from the nearby mountain. The bridge is well suited for people with disabilities. The exterior consists of laminated birch wood, the interior of timber. The room is 22 sqm. and has four beds, a separate sleeping loft, toilets, and living room.

Day 3 – The UFO

Today the theme is “out of this world” as you ascend into your third room – The Ufo. This evening, you will enjoy a gastronomy experience under the stars with your expert guide. Learn the basics of night photography and if you are lucky, capture the Northern Lights in the night sky.

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 a UFO?

The room is cast in durable composite material – all to create the lightest, yet strong and sustainable design possible. The interior gives the room a modern and comfortable feel. The UFO is built for five people, two adults in a double bed and three children, with separate beds, toilets, and living areas. 30 sqm. is all you need for a comfortable escape to childhood dreams.

Day 4 – The Mirrorcube

Awake to the sound of local birds chirping in the treetops and enjoy the view from above. Spend today at the forest spa, where you will have private use of the Tree Sauna and Jacuzzi. Try local snacks and beverages and relax as you enjoy a classic Swedish massage. After a three-course dinner with select wine pairings at the guesthouse, climb up to your fifth room – the camouflaged 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 interior, on the other hand, is a spacious environment where a family with two children can comfortably spread out. The walls are clad with wood panels and the windows almost disappear in the exterior’s network of branches. The room is 17 sqm. and has separate bedrooms, toilets, and living area. Showers and sauna are located in two separate buildings close by. All tree rooms have free WiFi. You go in the Bird’s Nest with the help of a retractable staircase.

Day 6 – The Cabin

Today you will be woodland wanderers as you join your guide for forest hike. Keep watch for local wildlife, discover the beautiful nature and forage for berries which you can enjoy with coffee around the campfire or savor later on in a dish prepared by the chef. This evening, settle into your sixth room – The Cabin – and enjoy the sparkling Arctic skies from the rooftop terrace

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 bridge is a long and interesting structure among the trees. The Cabin hangs slightly off-set, under the deck, partly to visually reduce the size and partly to give the tree room its own custom look.

The Cabin is like a capsule, a foreign body in the trees. The room is 24 sqm. and accommodates two people, with a double bed, toilets and a rooftop terrace.

Day 7 – The 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? The room is located 10 meters up in the pines. The way up is an experience in itself. As you reach the large, lush, Lapland treetops, with a breathtaking view of the Lule River, you have arrived at your destination. 

Large panoramic windows face north and along with skylights in the bedrooms, they will allow guests to watch the magnificent northern lights. The room has been designed with various ‘experience levels’.

The most spectacular level may well be the patio which consists of a net. A natural pine grows through the net and its branches spread out. On the net, you can lie face down and look downwards, lie on your back, listen to the sounds of the forest and look up at the starry sky. Here, on the border between Heaven and Earth, you can even sleep outdoors, should you wish to, or indoors, inside the new suite with two separate bedrooms. 

The room covers 1,100 sq. ft. of construction space, of which 820 sq. ft. are living space. The room will accommodate five people and will consist of two double beds, a bed sofa, a lounge, toilets and a bathroom with shower. Organic solutions, Scandinavian wood, and textiles define the interiors. The facade consists of a black, charred wooden surface, unlike any of the other rooms.

Day 8

After a leisurely breakfast, to helicopter back to the airport, or alternatively, you can drive or take the train, both great ways to experience more of the beautiful nature.
