Treehotel in Sweden

Smith co-founders Tamara and James Lohan took their children hunting for family-friendly boutique-hotels in Sweden, and their little ‘uns found their favourite:

Treehotel in SwedenTreehotel in Sweden‘What more could a 7 year old boy want out of life than to sleep in a UFO hidden and suspended amongst the trees in the depths of Swedish Lapland?’ wrote Tamara.

‘Actually, our three days at the Treehotel in Harads were full of dream like experiences – from zip lining through the tree canopy (even my 4-year-old loved it) to standing in the middle of a frozen lake, pulling out fish from a hole we cut out of the ice with a mini fishing rod – which, by the way, was my 7-year-old’s idea of heaven.

‘If I ask my children which holiday has been their favourite over the years (and they have travelled a lot) it’s not the countless swimming pools and beaches or even the best water park in the world, Waterbom in Bali: it’s freezing their little mittens off in Sweden, eating reindeer over a camp fire and drinking tree sap.

‘For me, the beauty of this unspoilt landscape with its stunning silver birches – and sleeping up among the tree tops – made me feel close to nature in a way that no luxury beach holiday ever has. I’d quite like to come back with just my husband and stay that incredibly romantic mirror-cube treehouse – I’m told no one can see in!’

  1. Wow this looks absolutely amazing! We have recently stayed as a family in a treehouse in South Wales, and it was such an escape from reality. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
