About Trakt Forest Hotel
Trakt Forest Hotel is a destination to experience Swedish nature and architecture. Leave the everyday stress behind and enjoy the silence, the solitude, and the unique forest. Disconnect and enter our forest suites, and explore the surrounding wilderness. Our timber house is the reception and the kitchen, or just a place to sit down and think. Welcome to Trakt Forest Hotel, this is a place for all of your senses. This is where the landscape, the view, and the stillness counts.
From Sällegården to Trakt
For many years Sandra and Mattias Sälleteg have had a dream of developing Sällegården, the place where Mattias grew up. After extensive research and thinking, they decided to create something that would take the family farm to another level, by building Trakt Forest Hotel.
With many years of experience from the forest industry, tourism, construction, creation, and rehabilitation the work with the hotel started in 2017. The ambition since the start has been to use the resources within the neighboring areas to create new experiences in nature and to develop the local tourism business.
A sustainable experience
To be able to offer an environmentally friendly and sustainable experience in Swedish nature, the work with Trakt Forest Hotel is based on carefully selected materials, to minimize the footprint. Locally grown and produced food, the use of wood damaged by fire, and isolation with wood wool. The forest suites are placed on pillars to have a minimal impact on the surrounding nature.
The couple behind Trakt Forest Hotel
Sandra and Mattias Sälleteg live on the Sällehägnad farm, with their three children. They are the fourth and fifth-generation, and they are maintaining and developing the family heritage. On the farm there are several houses, rented with holiday guests for over 10 years, creating a deep understanding of hospitality; this was a part of forming the ideas for Trakt Forest Hotel. Sandra and Mattias have many years of experience in nature and farming and hope that more people will see and explore the Swedish forests.
