Treehouse by Tham & Videgard Hansson is Almost Invisible

"A night at the Mirrorcube will set you back €475 (USD$631.37), an amount that will most definitely not be invisible on your credit card bill.”

Treehotel is located in Harads, near the Lule river, about 100 kilometers from Luleå airport. The village has a population of about 600 and features a restaurant, shop and guest house. When you arrive at Treehotel, you check in at Britta’s Pensionat. Then it’s just a short stroll through the beautiful nature to your treeroom.


The most striking part of Harads is its magnificent surroundings. From Treehotel’s rooms you get a fantastic view of the Lule River valley, miles of forest and the powerful river.”
