Treehotel welcomes their first guests to the seventh and latest room among the tree tops. What begun with a viewing of a film about a small tree house, has now become one of the coolest hotels in the world.

The seventh room at Treehotel in Harads, Boden, which is conveniently named the “7th room”, hangs 10 meters up in the air. And of today, new and old guests are welcomed to stay up in the tree crowns, with a close view of the northern lights during autumn and winter.

The room is designed by Jenny Osuldsen from the world-renowned design and architect firm Snøhetta. The Norwegian crew is also behind the re-designing of SFMoMA in San Francisco, the contemporary version of the classic library in Alexandria, as well as the landmark Oslo Opera House.

Treehotel was recently awarded the Mr & Mrs Smiths “Best Family Hotel” within boutique hotels, and the new room goes along perfectly with the family theme, having room for up to 5 guests.

The founders of Treehotel were inspired by a Swedish documentary about a city dweller who wanted to escape the city summer and move into a tree house along the Lule River. An idea had been planted. And from the moment it started to take shape and become a reality, it has always been about grand design.

Some of Sweden’s most known architect firms designed the five first rooms in the beautiful Harads pine forest; Inredningsgruppen, SandellSandberg, Cyrén & Cyrén, Tham & Videgård. Along came Sami Rintala at Rintala Eggertsson and designed the sixth room, the Dragonfly, and now Jenny Osuldsen at Snøhetta has added a seventh room, reaching a new level of grand design.

Facing an open landscape, you can sit in the comfort of your room and admire the view as well as the northern lights. The 7th room is of the same height as the balcony on The Cabin that used to be the highest point, ten meters above ground. Staying here is truly staying amongst the tree tops.

– And in summer, you can actually sleep on the balcony, under the sky, says Kent Lindvall at Treehotel.
– There are no mosquitoes ten meters up in the air, you know.
