After seven years in the making, Rasmus Lybæk’s dream of bringing people closer to nature has finally been realized with the debut of Løvtag (Danish for "canopy"), a glamping destination near Denmark’s pristine Mariager Fjord on the Als Odde peninsula. The getaway not only offers peaceful respite in a coastal forest, but also a cozy stay in a treetop cabin that positively oozes hygge.
Lybæk appointed Danish architect Sigurd Larsen to design the first of nine cabins planned for Løvtag. Lybæk was particularly impressed by Larsen’s experience with small-space design. No trees will be removed or damaged during the construction process—instead, the cabins are designed so that live trees grow through the middle of each structure.
"The forest is very diverse which makes it interesting to explore," says Larsen, who adds that the first cabin wraps around a pine tree, while the second and third cabins will be built around an oak tree and a beech tree, respectively.
Elevated 26 feet into the air, the 334-square-foot cabin can host up to four guests and it opens up to views of nature and an abundance of natural light via large windows on the south and west sides. The cabin comprises two sleeping areas, a kitchenette, a living and dining space, access to a rooftop terrace, and a bathroom that opens up to an outdoor shower. All of the cabins will be equipped with water, electricity, and indoor plumbing.
Guests are welcome to book online starting at 1,950 Danish Krone ($295 USD) for two people a night.
