An exterior view of the Treehotel in Sweden
Johan Jansson


Harads, Sweden

Tree houses aren’t generally synonymous with splendor. But the seven elevated cabins at Sweden’s Treehotel—located in a tiny village in the country’s Arctic region—could easily give the Swiss Family Robinson a run for its money. For starters, there are the extraordinary exteriors: one resembles a UFO, another resembles a bird’s nest, and the bottom of the latest edition—the aptly named 7th Room (right), which opened in 2017—features a life-size photograph of the canopy view it displaced. Inside, the cabins, which start at just under $500 per night, are more refined, with sleek, minimalist furniture and cozy lounge areas. Although some guests may have to travel to a separate facility to shower, fans argue that that’s a small sacrifice to make for a one-of-a-kind camping experience, especially when it’s under the Northern Lights. —Samantha Cooney
