For nature lovers, the Treehotel in Luela, Sweden is a “must-visit” travel destination. Designed by Scandinavian architects, the concept behind the five uniquely designed ‘treerooms’ is to offer top class accommodation to visitors whilst ensuring that the hotel maintains a minimal ecological footprint. Open year round, guests can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities within a private and tranquil setting. The rooms all sleep two people and the price varies according to which room you choose to stay in, with the most expensive costing $650 per night for double occupancy.
The Concordia research station is located on the Antarctic Plateau and operates year round. It is over 500 kilometres from the nearest civilisation and is considered the most isolated human outpost on the planet. 3233 metres above sea level, Concordia is built atop a naturally occurring summit on the Antarctic Ice Sheet and experiences dry conditions with temperatures well below freezing. These conditions are ideal for the study of astronomy, which is one project conducted here along with the investigation into climate change.
