With the stress caused by the city, work, routines, sometimes you have to take a break and what better than in the middle of nature.

For that there is the phenomenon of glamping or glamorous camping, a booming global movement that combines camping in the great outdoors with luxury and comfort. Previously, at Horse we had seen different glamping options, but this time we offer closer options.

It is not about staying in a hotel or in a rural tourism house, but in the trees. There are different proposals such as the Hotel Artic TreeHouse in Rovaniemi (Finland), The Woods Maine (Norway), Chewton Glen (England) or  Cabañitas del Bosque (Galicia).

Arctic TreeHouse Hotel, a privileged place to contemplate the Northern Lights

The first of these is the Arctic TreeHouse Hotel (Tarvantie 3 96930 Arctic Circle, Finland) which is located in Rovaniemi, on the Arctic Circle in Finland. This hotel blends luxury comfort with local traditions and modern Scandinavian design. In 2020 they have been nominated in the World Luxury Hotel Awards in the Luxury Architecture Design Hotel and Luxury Eco categories.

Treehotel, a new concept of tree-houses

Treehotel is located in Kallax in northern Sweden. Your stay allows you to observe the pine forests from its various cabins. From September to March there is also the possibility to see how the northern light illuminates the sky. In addition, this environment allows you to go fishing or pick berries.

Among its tree houses is the mirrorcube, a cube-shaped construction covered with glass that creates a mirror effect. On the other hand, there is the “bird’s nest” which simulates a large bird’s nest or the UFO which simulates a UFO.

One of the main novelties is the “7th floor”, a suite designed to offer “levels of experience”. In the room there are different windows with panoramic views. In the center of the room is a terrace, where the floor is a net with a pine tree in the middle. This suite has two bedrooms and five beds, and also has a bathroom, shower, and incinerator toilets, all with ecological elements.

The Woods Maine, refined and redefined

The Woods is located in beautiful Norway (Maine). Tucked away from the coast in a rustic, wooded setting, it immerses its guests in the fresh mountain air. The local town surrounding the cabin is only 25 minutes away with activities such as hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

The house can accommodate up to four people and is perfect for families, as it has a double room (king bed) and a single room with two beds.

It has been designed and built by Pete Nelson, the master of tree houses, together with Nelson Treehouse & Supply, and it shows in every detail. For one of the features that the Luxury Tree house has are the shafts of natural cedar branches that line the terraces and staircases of The Woods. Each branch is carefully designed to fit its new home among the trees.
