Lodging at Urnatur in Sjögetorp, Sweden

SWEDEN

Sjögetorp
Urnatur

Sustainability is the hotel world's catchword of the day, but Urnatur takes this concept one step further into the realm of self-sustainability. Craving a cup of tea? Staff will help you forage for local herbs to make it yourself. A three-hour drive from Stockholm in the Holaved forest, the seasonal (April through October) Urnatur offers accommodation in tree houses and hand-hewn huts. Light comes from kerosene lamps, and heat from solar or wood power, with the wood being gathered from storm-fallen trees whenever possible. Most menu items are procured locally, such as crayfish and berries gathered in the wild, and activities include building nesting boxes for owls. Moss Cabin has a peat roof that is covered with wild strawberries in the summer, and Tin Castle offers one of few concessions to the modern day: electricity to meet event needs.
