Wild, unbridled, surprising: On this trip, you’ll get to know the full-blooded creative brewers of the Swedish craft beer movement. We’ll also take you to the hippest representatives of natural and regional Nordic cuisine … fantastic sensations for your pallet guaranteed! Welcome to northern Sweden – welcome to a top-notch culinary road trip.
Enjoy food and drink together, discover new flavours and spend an eventful time in one of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. The best way to learn about a region in an authentic way is to eat your way through the regional cuisine; experience flavours and aromas. Gourmets especially will be delighted with Nordic cuisine. The best of the region will be served; nature’s treasures – berries, herbs, mushrooms, fish and game specialities – play a leading role in much of the cuisine.
Right now, Umeå is still a hidden gem. Seven restaurants in this Nordic mini metropolis have won a place in the renowned “White Guide”. “Umeå is a destination for gourmets,” the Lonely Planet aptly concludes. The top address is “Rex Brasserie”, whose kitchen crew is renowned for their extravagant menus. We also visit the most creative heads of the northern Swedish craft beer scene. Twenty years ago, the Swedish state brewery “Pripps Blå” dominated the local market with its consistently unspectacular beers. Nowadays, innovative microbreweries delight beer connoisseurs with carefully brewed creations full of character. They experiment with new recipes and special kinds of malt and hops; they brew Nordic beers without additives and artificial flavourings.
You’ll whet your appetite on strolls through the magnificent nature along the route. With a bit of luck you might even see a first class light show during your stay (from September to the end of March): the northern lights, aurora borealis. If the northern lights are out, we start an “aurora call”, i.e. we ensure that all the participants are informed.
