Northern Sweden’s Treetop Abode

The UFO’s exterior.

Located a one-hour drive from Luleå airport, Treehotel offers elevated comforts amid the natural wonders of Swedish Lapland. Lodgings here are raised four to ten meters above the forest floor, allowing guests to take in miles of uninterrupted river vistas and awe-inspiring foliage.

The Bird’s Nest is accessible by a retractable staircase.

At Treehotel, less is definitely more: with clean lines, monochrome shades, and minimalist furniture, the design is quintessentially and unmistakably Scandinavian. But simplicity does not mean lack of imagination. The whimsical UFO, for one, can accommodate up to two adults and three children within a compact space of only 30 square meters. This flying saucer-shaped pod features separate beds, a bathroom, a lounging area, and a bedding set adorned with playful galaxy prints (from US$553). No less remarkable is The Bird’s Nest, which—true to its name—is coated with rattling branches, seamlessly blending with its surroundings. Inside, you’ll find a guest quarter big enough for a family of four, graced with light wood panels and charming circular windows (from US$553). Carrying on Treehotel’s theme of straightforward names, The 7th Room is the latest and most impressive addition to the eco-property’s portfolio of hovering accommodations. The cabin’s entire bottom surface is covered with a life-size black-and-white print of pine trees that stood where the room now stands, while its interiors take complete advantage of the Lapland panoramas. Floor-to-ceiling windows beckon alongside sleek furniture pieces and a fireplace, creating a cozy space for bedding down, lounging around, and—if you’re lucky—marveling at the Aurora Borealis (from US$1353).

The 7th Room floats ten meters above ground.

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, there’s no better time to visit the property. Book Treehotel’s Romantic Package and enjoy two nights’ accommodation, breakfast, a three-course dinner, and indulgent refreshments (from US$677).
