Treehotel in Harads
The concept: The inspiration for Treehotel is taken from the movie “The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsén. A tale of three men from the city who rediscover their roots by building a tree house together. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophical story about the tree’s importance to our people, both historically and culturally.
The idea behind Treehotel is to offer a high-standard accommodation in a harmonious setting where daily stress quickly fades away and guests can enjoy the peace and purity of unspoiled nature.
Together with some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, five uniquely designed treerooms were created in Harads, approximately fifty kilometres outside the city of Luleå. The treerooms are located 4-6 meter above ground, all with spectacular views of the Lule river.
A very important part of the concept is to make a minimal ecological footprint. Therefore, the hotel is built around the ecological values in which substantial resources have been devoted to finding sustainable construction and energy solutions.
The experience: Treehotel is located in Harads, approximately fifty kilometres outside the city of Luleå. The guest’s unforgettable experience starts with a friendly reception at Britta’s guesthouse before being guided on to their treeroom. Each treeroom is a unique creation by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects. The modern design combined with the serenity of the forest creates an immediate sense of luxurious rejuvenation.
Guests enjoy all meals at Britta’s guesthouse served by the hosts Kent and Britta in a genuine Swedish setting from the 1930’s-1950’s. The warm and familiar atmosphere at Britta’s guesthouse combined with the contemporary design of the treerooms create a completely unique dimension for the Treehotel’s guests.
Guests who desire privacy can of course choose to have food delivered to their room.
A stay at the Treehotel offers a variety of both summer and winter activities. But many guests choose to mostly enjoy the stillness, timelessness and harmony of the Treehotel and its surroundings. A good book, stunning views and stylish accommodation is sufficient to create the feeling that Treehotel is all about.
