For overgrown schoolboys or outdoorsy types with fat wallets, nothing beats a treetop hotel. (Yes, you read that right, and no, we’re not talking about Avatar: The Theme Park.) Owned by Britta and Kent Lindvall, this new Lapland guesthouse is still a work in progress, as the couple is building two dozen custom suites ranged through the trees of a forest 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle (bring thermals in winter—temperatures hover around 0 degrees). Each of the rooms will be unique—they range in appearance from a birds’ nest to a spaceship—and the pick of the seven completed so far is a mirrored cube on a stick that looks like a shiny lollipop that effectively vanishes into the canopy.
