Underwater hotel in Mälaren lake
A small red lodge on Lake Mälaren, accessible by boat, is the entrance to the underwater hotel. The hotel is not heated, so this property can be booked from April to October. Don't worry about meals - there is a possibility to cook in the part of the hotel above the water. While staying at this hotel you can enjoy a refreshing swim, sunsets and sleep in a room with panoramic windows at a depth of 3 meters. Don’t be surprised when the fish arrive at the window in the morning to say hello.
Kolarbyn ecological hut
Nowadays, when the availability of electricity and water is something we are used to, staying in the Kolarbyn ecological hut can be an interesting experience that enriches everyday life. The forest huts are located in the Skinnskatteberg Forest, which can also be reached by public transport. In each hut you can light a fire and sleep on a sheepskin, and there is a possibility to cook on an open fire. In the morning you will wake up not the phone, but the birdsongs. You can also go swimming, hiking and fishing in the area.
Do you remember those moments from childhood when you were climbing trees and building huts? A hotel in a tree would be like a trip back to childhood. Located in northern Sweden, this hotel has 7 different rooms set in trees 4 to 6 meters above the ground. Here you can stay, for example, on a UFO ship, in a bird's nest or in a cube of mirrored walls. You will be able to enjoy not only a good sleep, but also wonderful views of nature, admire sunrises and sunsets.
Falcon’s Nest (Falknästet)
