Day 4: Stockholm - Luleå Airport - Harads

Meet your driver for a private airport transfer. Your driver will be holding a name sign at the arrival gates.

Flight is required, currently not included in the quote. Please contact your Destination Expert if you are interested in adding this service to the itinerary.

Upon arrival in Luleå you will meet your driver for a private transfer from Luleå Aiport to one of the chosen Treehotels in Harads. The Treehotel is located in the boreal forest approximately an hour from Luleå (Kallax) airport.

Check-in is at Britta’s Pensionat and after that you will take a short stroll to your “room” which will be either: The UFO, The Cabin, The Mirrorcube, The Birds Nest, The Blue Cone, The Dragonfly, The 7th Room. Each treeroom is a unique creation by Scandinavia’s leading architects. The modern design combined with the quiet of the forest creates an instant feeling of luxurious relaxation.

The Mirrorcube is an exciting hide-out among the trees, camouflaged by mirrored walls that reflect their surroundings. The dimensions are 4x4x4 metres. The base consists of an aluminum frame around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass. The interior is made from plywood with a birch surface. The six windows provide a stunning panoramic view. A 12-meter-long bridge leads up to the tree room. The Mirrorcube offers excellent accommodation for two people with a double bed, bathroom, lounge and a rooftop terrace.

The Cabin is like a capsule, a foreign body in the trees, overlooking the Lule River valley. You can reach the hut from here via a horizontal bridge among the trees. At the front of the bridge is a large wooden deck. The bridge is a long and interesting structure among the trees. The Cabin hangs slightly off-set, under the deck, partly to visually reduce the size and partly to give the tree room its own custom look. The room is 24m² and accommodates two people, with a double bed, bathroom and terrace.


The UFO - While working on the Bird’s Nest, which is largely in harmony with its surroundings, the idea of creating an entirely different environment was born. And what could be more different than an UFO? The room is cast in durable composite material – all to create the lightest, yet strong and sustainable design possible. The interior gives the room a modern and comfortable feel. The UFO is built for five people, two adults in a double bed and three children, with separate beds, bathroom and living area. 30m² is all you need for a comfortable escape to childhood dreams.

The Blue Cone is based on simplicity and accessibility, both in terms of material and design. The room is a traditional wooden structure with three foundations in the ground to give a sense of height and lightness, but also stability. You access the room via a bridge from the nearby mountain. The bridge is well suited for people with disabilities. The exterior consists of laminated birch wood, the interior of timber. The treeroom is 22m² and has four beds, separate sleeping loft, bathroom and living room.

The Bird’s nest is built on the contrasts between the outside and inside. The treerooms exterior is nothing but a gigantic bird’s nest. It gives a camouflage so you quickly disappear and become part of the surroundings. The interior, on the other hand, is familiar and exclusive. It’s a spacious environment where a family with two children can comfortably spread out. The walls are clad with wood panels and the windows almost disappear in the exterior’s network of branches. The room is 17m² and has separate bedrooms, bathroom, and living area. You enter the Bird’s Nest with the help of a retractable staircase.

The 7th Room is build ten meters up in the pines, with its entire underside covered by a life size photograph of the treetops as they looked before the suite was put in place. Stairs and landings take visitors closer to the clouds, step by step. Scandinavian wood and textiles define the interior of this spacious 100 m² suite, and features two separate bedrooms, bathroom, large living area, and large panoramic windows face north and along with skylights in the bedrooms allowing guests to watch the magnificent northern lights. The suite also features a spectacular patio consisting of a net, where one may lie between earth and heaven, listening to the sounds of the forest while looking up at the starry sky.

Take advantage of their facilities and enjoy a sauna session at the specially designed wooden sauna. A sauna in the woods is both natural and sensible. You also have access to a hot tub as well as their custom-designed relaxation area. Other activities include the Forest spa and the Swedish Classic massage session. Please speak to your Sales Advisor if you are interested in adding this service to your itinerary.

Enjoy a 3-courses meal at the Britta`s Pensionat tonight in an authentic 1930-1950`s setting.

Accommodation: Treehotel - Treeroom (H/B)

Treehotel is located in Harads, near the Lule River, about 100 kilometers from Luleå airport and offers a unique hotel experience: treerooms with contemporary design in the middle of unspoiled nature. The rooms are suspended 4-6 meters above ground - all with spectacular views of the Lule River.

The rooms vary in size between 15-30 m², with the largest rooms accommodating up to four people. The daily operations as well as the tree room’s construction are environmentally friendly, aimed to have minimal impact on nature. That’s why each room has modern, environmentally-friendly combustion toilets and water-efficient sinks.

Day 5: Harads

At Treehotel you can experience the charm of all four seasons, regardless of whether you like speed and adventure, or tranquility and time for reflection. Want to experience the beautiful winter with its stark contrasts of dark skies against glistening white snow? An action-packed dog sled ride through the frozen landscape, or a calm and quiet snowshoe hike in pursuit of the magic and myth of the northern lights? Ice melts and greenery explodes after the long sleep of winter. Why not experience the arrival of summer and its bright nights while on horseback, mountain bike, or peacefully by foot? During the most colorful of seasons, it’s a rare experience to paddle a kayak along the historic Lule River and enjoy the autumn’s fresh, clean air. And, if you like fishing, you have access to good fishing waters all year around.

Here are a few suggestions that you may be interested in:

Sami Culture: Guided tour to Flakaberg, a village about 80 km from Harads. Here you’ll visit the family of Lars Eriksson who will show his reindeer pastures and talk about the Sami culture.

Horseback Riding: Experience the unique nature and the wonderful views while riding calm horses.

Fishing: Try fishing for perch, bleak, roach, ide, bream, trout, pike and more.

Sea Kayaking: Head down to the river and accompanied by an experienced guide you`ll paddle at a leisurely pace up the historic Lule River.

Snowshoe tour: Your guide will equip you with warm clothes, boots, snowshoes and poles. During the tour they’ll share their knowledge of animals and nature, and the art of surviving in the wild – including how to start a fire in the winter. The hike will go up to a mountain peak where you’ll have a magnificent view of the river valley’s winter landscape.

Snowmobile tour: Riding a snowmobile through a beautiful winter landscape is a liberating feeling, just like surfing or riding a motorbike.

Husky Dog sled tour: A tour with dog and sled through the pristine forest and over the frozen river provides a dream-like feeling.

Other activities: Hiking in Korgen Nature Reserve, Pine Tree Forest Walk, Mountain Biking, White Water Paddle Adventure in Inflatable Canoe, Moose Safari, Zip Lining, Northern Light Photography, Day Trip to Storforsen Nature Reserve, Bear Dinner with Sami Story, Horse-pulled skiing, Ice Dining, Explore the taiga forest by Fat bike, Segway Tour and Ski touring.

  • Sandra S — August 11, 2019 — Europe

    Fantastic tour that met all our special requests! Our anniversary celebration was perfect! Our grandchildren made so many memories from playing in the fields of the farm to sailing through the fjords and eating desserts at all the bakeries! A marvellous intergenerational experience!

  • Julie S — July 05, 2019 — Europe

    Thank you to Daniel for making our family’s trip to Greece so enjoyable and memorable. We asked him for an “Instagram” worthy trip, and he delivered! The hotels on the islands were stunning, and our private tour guides at each stop easily accommodated our individual wishes. Our trip was the perfect mix of relaxation and exploration.

  • Elizabeth B — July 20, 2019 — Europe

    I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your services. Everything from the drivers to the hotels to guides was five stars! We never had to wait in line and were treated like royalty. I highly recommend the private boat ride/tour to Capri. It was fabulous! We had never been to Italy and left feeling like we learned so much. We fell in love with the people and culture. We cannot wait to have Kensington book our next adventure.

  • Kimberly E — July 14, 2019 — Europe

    It was the first time we have used a company of this nature to manage our bookings. Most often I book my rooms, and tours, but after this experience, I would definetely use Kensington again for a trip of this type. Our Destination truly supported us and allowed us to make changes until the plan was just perfect for us. This truly showed when we were in country and everthing went off perfectly. I was worried to have other book items on my families behalf seeing as we were traveling with kids (age 8 and 10), but I feel our destination Expert did take that into account and it was perfect.

  • Keith M — July 13, 2019 — Europe

    There is so much to say about this amazing family trip to northern Spain we just came home from, but in short, the trip was even more than we could have hoped for - From the planning to the tour guides, drivers and accommodations our needs were met and in most cases surpassed. There is no way the trip could have been as successful without the help of Maryanne from Kensington Tours and her team.

  • Sara L — June 29, 2019 — Europe

    Our Iceland trip was fantastic. From planning with Melissa (many times over until we had it right) to being greeted in Iceland and all of the wonderful tours we took, we had a fabulous time. Our guide, Sigga, was excellent. She guided us, told us tales of Iceland, was extremely accommodating with my elderly mom. We enjoyed being with her very much. Inke, our guide to the glacier, was also wonderful. We had a great time and felt Kensington did a fabulous job. Thanks!

  • Dawn K — July 18, 2019 — Europe

    The trip overall was amazing and all the activities and travel plans went so very smoothly. Our whole familiy really enjoyed every day of the trip. Patrick McCallion, the expert from your agency who helped us, was awesome! He not only set up everything perfectly for us but helped us with reservations for dinners at fine dining places and answered many questions we had in advance. We did leave our glasses in the van at one point in Barcelona and had to contact the local agent who quickly retrieved the glasses for us without any problem. We highly recommend this agency given the quality of the experience, the smoothness of the itinerary, and the flexibility to tailored the experience to our needs. Thank

  • Diana B — June 23, 2019 — Europe

    This was our 6th Kensington tour. We have gone as a couple on trips and taken our children sometimes to destinations all over the world. We have never been disappointed and have had the most personal and professional service. We would not even consider using anyone else. Thank you Alania for everything! Our most recent trip to Russia and Scandinavia was fabulous and perfectly planned!
