Theme Food


You slow down your pace and start observing the surroundings more closely. The colours around you are full and vivid. The ground covered in green, with shy berries peeking through the leafage. You can feel someone watching you in the woods from afar. And wasn’t that a fish jumping in the stream? The Arctic is a pantry full of natural delicacies. Game, fish, birds and livestock, berries and herbs, all brought up on clean water and natures goodness in unique habitats. From the Atlantic Ocean to the brackish water in the Bay of Bothnia, through generous streams and rivers, across mountains and forests to rich farmlands you can literally taste your way through the Arctic.
