The Aurora Safari camp gives you the perfect opportunity to experience the silence of Swedish Lapland. Away from artificial light which means you will experience the full effect of the northern lights in the star glittered sky. These cosy tents offer a luxury wilderness experience deep inside the Boreal Forest. With warm clothing, thick sleeping bags and a log burning stove you are sure to sleep well the temperature inside the tents was around 17C, even at -20C outside.

They are passionate about the fragile environment they grew up in and want to show you their home.

Treehotel - Swedish Lapland

**The 7th Room - NEW FOR JANUARY 2017**
A luxururious, spacious room with space for 5 people, 10 meters high in the trees with an impressive view across the Lule River Valley.

Treehotel has taken the lead by using innovative building techniques to secure the cabins in the trees. By using securing brackets and by closely monitoring the growth rate of the trees, Treehotel has successfully built a hotel in the tree tops without using nails. Luleå university has also been closely involved as international companies and organisations look to use and adapt this innovative process. Your meals are served at Britta's pensionat (part of Treehotel) and with a full range of winter activities you will find plenty to keep you occupied.

Warm outer clothing is included during your stay from December to March.

See the gallerey for more photos.
