Treehotel – Luleå River ValleyThe Treehotel offers you a unique boutique hotel experience: 6 different types of tree rooms with contemporary design in the middle of unspoiled nature. Here you can forget about the time constraints of everyday life, enjoy the serenity and rejuvenate in a sophisticated yet familiar environment.
Treehotel is located in Harads, about 70 km from Luleå airport and 40 km upstream from Boden. The village has a population of about 600 and features a restaurant, shop and a guest house.
When you arrive at Treehotel, you check in first at Britta’s Guesthouse. Then it’s just a short stroll through the beautiful nature to your tree room. From Treehotel’s rooms you get a fantastic view of the Lule River valley, miles of forest and the powerful river. Breakfast is included in the room price and along with other meals are avaible at Brittas.
Britta and Kent who own the Treehotel have built a modern hotel with the best of Swedish style and design. They are also now famous however for the warm and cosy atmosphere, their hospitality and most importantly the glorious home cooked meals.
Upcoming is the the 7th room (available from 20th of January, 2017. 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....
The ConceptWhy not create a hotel that gives people a chance to experience nature amongst the tree-tops, while also providing a uniquely designed housing experience? These questions led to the creation of Treehotel in Harads – a place where nature, ecological values, comfort and modern design are combined for an exciting adventure.
Treehotel was inspired by the film ”The Tree Lover” by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. It’s a tale of three men from the city who want to go back to their roots by building a tree house together. “The Tree Lover” is a philosophic story about the significance of trees for us human beings.
The idea behind Treehotel is to offer high-standard accommodation in a harmonious place where daily stress melts away. Guests can relax and renew their energy while surrounded by unspoiled nature.
Eco-friendlyTreehotel is built on the genuine
experience of nature, so it’s a given that sustainability and ecological
values are two pillars of their hotel operation.
They build their treerooms in the natural forest while hardly affecting the surroundings. They choose material and construction techniques that make as little environmental impact as possible. They build on live trees without destroying the tree and they do not chop down any trees or damage nature while building. Mostly they use local construction companies.
They have chosen an eco outdoor wood floor, which doesn´t contain any chemical substances. The wood is heated to over 200 degrees, which triggers their intrinsic resistance to protect against destruction.
