Burrowed deep within the forests of Dalsland, four glass houses designed to bring you in tune with nature nest. Surrounded by the Swedish wilderness, the secluded cabins are a sanctuary for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Designed by Jeanna Berger, the glass houses were integral to the 72 Hour experiment in enhancing their connectivity to nature. A family affair, her design was realised by her brother-in-law on Henriksholm Island, owned by her parents. Open from April to November, the glass houses are available at the Dalsland Aktiviteter Centre.

Perched on the shores of the Lake Iväg, totally secluded, there is only a bed in the cabins with the Experience Centre nearby for other facilities. Crafted by an on site chef, meals are cooked with local produce. Essentials for self catering will be provided on arrival in a backpack, lockable storage for added security is available.

The Dalslands Aktiviteter Centre nearby offers unparalleled access to the Swedish woodlands. From kayaking to horse riding, there are numerous activities to bring you closer to nature. Combine your stay with the teepee huts or the lake-house nearby to maximise your stay in the Swedish wilderness. 

"From the very beginning, I decided that the house would stand on pillars so that it did not leave a permanent footprint on the environment...the people who will live in them share the same approach to nature. We want to live in natural settings but leave as small a footprint as possible."

Jeanna Berger | The 72 Hour Cabin Designer

Living in a digital age, the 72 Hour Cabin experiment proposes an alternative way of living, the Swedish way. Illustrating the unique relationship Swedes have with nature, they placed 5 individuals in the wilderness for 72 hours to rekindle their relationship with nature. The benefits of immersing yourself in Swedish nature was clear, their stress levels had decreased by 70% and creativity levels soared.
