Address: Edeforsvägen 2A, 960 24 Harads, Sweden

Located in the forest of Harads and less than an hour’s drive from Boden, Treehotel is made up of futuristic yet environmentally friendly structures flanked by trees. Each of the building structures sports a unique design. Take Mirrorcube, for example, and its reflective walls that blend in and somehow disappear into the forest. Other Treehotel architectural marvels include The Bird’s Nest, The UFO, The Cabin, The Blue Cone, and The Dragonfly. Food is served at Britta’s Pensionat, the main check-in point to the various treerooms. There’s also a sauna and a bar, but you’ll be mostly distracted by the splendid forest views to want to stay in for the happy hours.

Icehotel

Located in the northern Swedish town of Jukkasjärvi and around 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle, Icehotel is a mixture of conventional buildings and temporary structures and interiors fashioned out of ice blocks. At Icehotel, you get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to sleep on a bed of ice, sip drinks from glasses carved out of ice, stay in the first ice hotel in the world, and even tie the knot inside a chapel constructed out of ice. Breakfast is on the house at the Icehotel. Other hotel amenities include a lounge, an ice bar, and a nice restaurant. You can also opt to join guided tours to explore nearby tourist attractions.

Address: Central City Park, Vasteras, Sweden

This hotel is an elaborate and highly sophisticated version of childhood fantasies involving a cozy tree house. A wobbly but otherwise strong rope ladder is the only mode of access to the peculiar Woodpecker Hotel, a structure suspended from wires 13 meters up a very old tree. Being suspended at a dizzying height enables the guests of Woodpecker Hotel to enjoy the picturesque views of the park in Västerås, Sweden. The accommodation is in a cramped space, but it includes the basics like a small kitchen, toilet, and a much-needed veranda for enjoying the breathtaking views. As for the meals, you get them delivered in a basket transported by a pulley up your very own little red tree house. The Woodpecker Hotel is only open to guests from April to October, so remember to book ahead if it’s high up in your travel agenda.
