World’s Tallest Wooden Hotel – Sustainability in Swedish Lapland
The world’s tallest wooden hotel is made almost exclusively from wood and is now open for guests everywhere. The Wood Hotel can be found at the birthplace of cross-country skiing, Skelleftea in Swedish Lapland. The new hotel is part of a five-day and four-night Wood Hotel Experience from Off the Map Travel adventure travel specialists. The VIP experience is a mix of sustainability and nature in a beautiful setting.
The world’s tallest wooden hotel is designed for enjoyment in the forested area of northern Sweden. Welcome are both couples and families. They will experience the hotel along with local adventure and gastronomy. Available from December to March, the Wood Hotel Experience begins with an overnight stay in Stockholm. Next, take a flight to Skelleftea. Once there, guests will be transferred by electric car to the Wood Hotel.
Alex Minnis from Off the Map Travel states, “This is an opportunity for sustainability-minded visitors who search out ‘neo luxury’ looking for culture and escapism all wrapped into one comfortable, climate-sensitive package. Being made out of wood contributes to the building’s being climate-positive as the structure absorbs more CO2 than it uses. It also contributes to comfort and personal well-being, reducing stress and improving sleep.”
The new Wood Hotel stands 75 meters tall. In addition, it has 20 stories and is made almost entirely from spruce and pine sourced from the neighboring forests. Also, it dominates the local skyline. But it seamlessly fits into the town’s natural beauty with its wood construction. The world’s tallest wooden hotel has 205 contemporary rooms. Each is filled with the rich, warm smell of the trees they are built from. In addition to a rooftop spa, the hotel has three stunning restaurants. For example, dine at an Italian café, an Asian restaurant and one with locally sourced, Sami-inspired food.
As part of the experience, guests will create their own gin at Skelleftea’s award-winning distillery. Thus, you will use locally foraged ingredients. Guests can also choose to go snowshoeing to take in the sights of this beautiful part of Swedish Lapland. Later, relax in the hotel’s Vana Spa with its saunas and outdoor pool. Enjoy panoramic views over Skelleftea and its forests. In winter, the new itinerary is perfect for guests to experience the Northern Lights. Take a self-guided walk with well-marked trails that depart directly from the hotel.
