A luxury hotel in Sweden’s treetops
Many hotels around the world offer guests the chance to get closer to nature, but only this one, in the forests of Swedish Lapland, lets them disappear within it. It’s 3am and, rather than sleep, I’m standing watching the early morning sun play on the branches outside my suite – a self-contained, mirror-clad cube, clamped to the trees four metres above ground. I’m utterly isolated, and from the ground outside, the cube is almost invisible. The silence is intoxicating.
