Full description

The Chef’s Table

Enjoy a memorable evening at the Veranda in the company of talented chefs. Delight in the theatrical performance and superb 12-course menu, designed by Michelin-trained Head Chef Alexander Meier using locally sourced ingredients. While the courses are prepared, the chefs explain the concept behind the dishes, then you enjoy a mouth-watering meal paired with delicious wines.

Wilderness Dinner

Dine on a three-course meal around a crackling fire under the stars, garnished (with luck) by a breathtaking display of the northern lights. Prepared by a wilderness chef using local ingredients, the dinner is a wonderful way to sample the distinct flavours of the north while the dark skies above will hopefully host the dancing colours of the aurora borealis.

Husky Sledding with Swedish Fika

Whoosh through the snowy forest on a husky sled, taking in the beautiful scenery and excitable dogs ahead of you, before arriving at a campfire ready for Swedish fika. This coffee break ritual is part of everyday life in Sweden, a moment to slow down, savour delicious coffee and freshly-baked cakes. Warm up around the fire before heading back through the winter wilderness on your sled.

Arctic Sushi Atelier - Optional

Learn the art of making perfect sushi with an Arctic touch, in the company of our sushi chef using Arctic Char, caught by local fishermen, and salmon. The workshop takes three hours, which includes teaching, practice and degustation as well as an apron per participant to commemorate the experience. Spaces are limited so book early!

Authentic holidays for passionate travellers
The Chef’s Table is utterly mesmerising. I was wowed by the chefs as they brought each course alive by explaining the concept, choice of ingredients and local provenance. The presentation was breathtaking, the food exquisite and the atmosphere and drama made for a truly memorable evening.
