A design hotel by international standards.

It all started as a visionary idea to create something that has never been done before in Sweden.

It resulted in a hotel at the end of the road 730 metres above sea level designed by one of the world's most prominent architects. The mission to draw the hotel went to the American architect Peter Bohlin and his architectural firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. From the outset, a lot of emphasis was placed on the contrasts between outside and inside. They wanted to bring the astonishing nature into the building while care was that every interior detail would have a modern design. A unique hotel grew full of natural material choices, warm living areas and thoughtful solutions.

The hotel is almost entirely built in wood, making it one of Europe's largest wooden structures and our guests are greeted by a lobby with 22 meters ceiling height, a stove that stretches all the way up to the roof and a copper wall of 230 sqm.

The name Copperhill comes from the time between 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century when they broke copper ore in the area around Fröå about two km. from the hotel. The mining area is well preserved and is today a popular tourist destination both during summer and winter.

The hotel, which is the largest private investment in the history of Åre, was owned until August 2009 by Dutch investors Peter Kat and Frans Scholtes and was bought on August 28, 2009 by Petter Stordalen's real estate company, becoming part of the Strawberry hotel chain.

"What tickled us from the beginning was the challenge of creating an environment on this wonderful mountain top that lots of people could enjoy.
