All those nice, clean, old-fashioned, and traditional inns with the same scrambled eggs and orange juices for breakfast are good. But do you get any new experience after staying there? After visiting a few such inns, everything became the same. As a result, you might be looking for something new to broaden your attitude and a list of new experiences. This time we present a list of special, nature-inspired inns where you can rediscover your relationship with nature.
A little house in a tree can be not only a childhood memory, but also a place of staying for a few nights surrounded by nature. That is what Pete Nelson, who lives in the northwestern part of the USA, thought of, and bought a small piece of forest where he founded the Tree House Point Inn. He and his wife Judy currently maintain an inn that consists of a few tree houses where every visitor can climb above their daily worries and relax surrounded by nature.
The Harsh Beauty of the North
The sun, the warm water, the palm trees are the main things when we imagine vacations. North, icebergs, and cliffs of snowy mountains are what the northernmost 4-star Hotel Arctic has to offer. And it turns out that such an offer attracts a lot of people from all over the world. Hotel Arctic is located next to the UNESCO-protected Ilulissat Ice Fjord in Greenland. Therefore, icebergs, which sometimes reach a height of even 1 km, are a common part of the landscape in this place.
Zero Star Staying
As the slogan the amazing inn held in Switzerland says, “You are the only star”. The first such hotel is located in a nuclear bunker. If it was not advisable to visit for those who are afraid of closed spaces, then those who are intimidated by open spaces will feel bad in the new hotel. Artists Frank and Patrick Ricklin and hotel business professional Daniel Charbonnier unveiled their new project, a single-bed micro-inn with no walls, no windows, or no ceilings. Instead of walls there are the Alps and instead of the roof you have stars. The night in fresh air of mountains when there no one else is an amazing experience.
Peace Without Electricity
Our ancestors would probably not believe in it if someone told them that in the future their descendants would pay big money for the opportunity to leave their comfortable homes with electricity, water supply, and other amenities and stay in an underground hut heated only by a fireplace. This is exactly what the Kolarbyn resort in Sweden offers. And that is why it attracts a lot of visitors who long for nature, silence, disconnection, and the true Nordic forest.
One thing is obvious, even for those who have not visited the Palacio de Sal Inn in Bolivia, that you will never run out of salt there. The walls, ceilings, and even tables and chairs are made of salt. If being more specifically, everything is made from salt blocks. The Palacio de Sal is located in the largest salt marsh of the world called Ujun. If you are interested in getting to know the salt plains, hurry to reserve a room. It is said that being there feels like you are on the moon.
