Located in Harads, a village in the northern part of Sweden, with only 600 inhabitants, the hotel has made the forested region a tourist attraction.
Designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects such as Martin Videgård and Bolle Tham as well as Mårten & Gustav Cyrén, the hotel promises to reconnect its guests with nature. The hotel, which first opened in July 2010, consists of five tree-rooms and the owners Britta and Kent Lindvall, expect to build a total of 24 tree-rooms by 2012. All of the rooms harmoniously blend into the natural environment with the aim of making a minimal ecological footprint.
Each room is located four to six meters above the ground and they all share the magnificent views of the surrounding natural environment. The rooms themselves vary in size from 15-30m2.
