Swedish Lapland has often been called Europe’s last wilderness and the relatively unknown area of Luleå now brings a unique offering with the opening of the Treehotel on 17 July 2010.
Whilst there are some tree-based hotels in the world, none benefit from the same architectural concept. There are six completely unique themed Tree Houses, created by five separate architects. Home to the world’s first tree top sauna and offering the possibility of sipping on cocktails in the ‘UFO-tree cottage’, it could be considered the world’s largest outdoor playground for adults. For more details visit www.treehotel.se.
Luleå is a microcosm of everything that is so great about Swedish Lapland, but instead of having hours to drive to each point of interest, everything is reachable within 15-20 minutes. It has a population of about 73,000 and is a city of contrast with icy cold winters and beautifully warm summers meaning visitors can bask on the vast archipelago in the summer months and try out some extreme winter sports in the colder months.
