Once upon a time, a filmmaker named Jonas Selberg Augustsén visited a guesthouse in the forests of Swedish Lapland, where he and his crew captured the movie The Tree Love. For the couple who owned the pensionat, their visit sparked an idea that would evolve into something truly unique. They gave a few friends (also renowned Swedish architects) free reign to let their inspiration run wild, and together created a series of treetop dens that would attract global travellers for years to come. Guests today seek either the Bird’s Nest cabin or the new ‘seventh room’ 10m up
in the pine crowns. Stargaze from the netted terrace or enjoy an al fresco night in the wilderness. Relaxation comes via the tree sauna, open-air hot tub or Swedish massage, while more energetic activities include snow-shoe walks, husky-drawn sled rides and white-water rafting. Keen photographer? Cross the Arctic Circle and scan the sky for the legendary green flashes of the Aurora Borealis. This is more than a hotel stay: it’s earthy and humbling in a remote, picture-perfect setting.
