Food and drink

Delightful local cousine – enjoy the taste

In Swedish Lapland simplicity does not mean plain. We strive to keep as few steps as possible from forest to plate. The local cuisine is diverse with natural ingredients of high quality, grown in a clean environment.

Fish is a local delicacy and a culinary treat. Salmon, grayling, whitefish and roe swimming in our clear waters decorate the gourmet menus. Kalix bleak roe (Kalix löjrom) is an exclusive local treasure not to be missed!

Traditional dishes are reindeer, moose, grouse and capercaillie served with freshly picked berries. Cranberries, blueberries, cloudberries and Arctic raspberries are combined with main dishes, in desserts, in drinks or enjoyed just as they are.

Local cuisine differs from place to place in Northern Sweden and this is something a foodie will notice. Historically speaking our food culture is closely connected to our way of life and to what nature has had to offer us. Often less is more and our use of ingredients are innovative. Honest, natural, diverse and tasteful.
