Rather than bulldoze the Swedish forest, some very clever architects found a way to build into it. Sweden's Treehotel is made up of uniquely designed separate tree rooms dotted throughout the forest. The growing portfolio includes a Bird's Nest, camouflaged Mirror Cube, and spooky UFO but should you grow tired of serenity, you can mingle with the other guests at the tree sauna!
At the Gibbon Experience for travellers on Laos holidays, rustic shelters in the top-level canopy are connected by a network of zip-lines only; even your food is sent down a zip-wire to you. Be warned though, it’s best to visit in the dry season and this adventure is not for those who are afraid of heights, spiders, leeches, etc. Or for those who are health and safety officers.
However, the toughest travellers don’t let details like not having an actual treehouse get in the way of a night on the twigs. It certainly doesn’t bother companies like the Pacific Tree Climbing Institute in Oregon, or Mighty Oak Tree Climbing in Cornwall. They specialise in tree camping - that's treetop stays where you sleep harnessed into a ‘tree boat’ hammock and enjoy breakfast in the branches the next morning.
