Set high in a beautiful pine forest, 60 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle outside the small village of Harads, are six unique treehouses created by six different architects. The Treehotel is unlike any other hotel on earth, mixing modernist, minimalist design and back-to nature values with childhood fantasies of sleeping amongst the treetops.
Each individually themed treehouse is equipped with under-floor heating, a sink and an environmentally friendly toilet. Showers and meals are taken in the hotel's main house. The Tree Sauna is a wonderful addition and makes for a welcome retreat after a day exploring the surrounding landscapes.
Open all year round, guests can experience the varying climates and seasons of this stunning part of Scandinavia, from the snowy winters with majestic displays of the Northern Lights, to the midnight sun in the summer months.
There's a wealth of activities available depending on what time of year you happen to be staying, with winter offering up horse and sleigh excursions, dog sledding and skiing. In summer and autumn, trekking, mountain biking and fishing are just some of the available options. For all stays, guests will be treated to a tour of the hotel.
Dogsledding - Sit back and relax as your musher steers your sled and dog team through forests and fells at a rate of knots. Or, for a small supplement, take control of the team and drive the sled yourself. Lunch is included
Operates: December to March
Prices from: £175 per person (£195 per person if driving your own sled) /
Sami Life - Meet traditional Sami reindeer farmer Lars Eriksson along with his family abd reindeer in the village of Flakberg, around 80 km from Harrads. Enjoy a snowmobile tour to a nearby lake and eat lunch around a roaring fire in a typical Sami kata (teepee). Lunch is included.
Operates: December to March

Horse & Sleigh - Snug and warm beneath a thick fleece blanket, take a ride on a rissla (a horse-drawn sled for two) through the snowy surrounds of Swedish Lapland, stopping along the way for a campfire lunch. Lunch is included

Prices from: £108 per person
Skiing at Storklinten - Only 15 minutes from Treehotel is the ski resort of Storklinten, offering both downhill and cross-country skiing with lifts open seven days a week. Due to its close proximity to Treehotel this makes a fantastic day trip, but if you'd prefer to stay a couple of nights there are several ski-in/ski-out chalets in the village. Transfers to and from Storklinten are included
Operates: December to April
Prices from: £35 per person
Village Walking - Experience the culture and architecture of a typical northern village. Village Walking, a year-round activity where you go by foot or bicycle during the summer, and perhaps with a kick-sled during the winter, allows guests to gain an understanding of Harad's past, present and future. The tour finishes with a visit to a village family where you can enjoy coffee and pastries and hear some of their stories. Guide, snacks and transport are included.
