If you haven’t heard of the Treehotel, where have you been!? Located in pine forests by the Lule River in Swedish Lapland it is one of the most architecturally impressive collection of rooms. Set up by Kent Lindvall and his wife Britta in 2010, the portfolio of rooms consists of The Cabin, The UFO, The Mirrorcube, The Blue Cone, The Bird’s Nest and The Dragonfly, each with their own unique character.

Brand new to their already very impressive collection is the 7th Room - the largest, tallest and most impressive yet.

Designed by Snøhetta, the traditional Scandinavian log cabin, which is 10 metres up in the air, spans 100 square metres, 75 of which is living space, consisting of two double bedrooms, a sofa bed, a lounge and a bathroom with a shower. Large panoramic windows face north, and with added skylights and a light interior you truly feel up in the trees and at one with nature.

The most spectacular attraction to this stunning room is the outside space, where a strong net provides terrace space for you to climb out on. Here you are suspended off the ground, perfect for late nights looking at the Arctic sky in the hopes that the Northern Lights will appear. Find out more about the 7th Room structure here.
