Our season menu

Experience the wilderness with all your senses

In season right now

We craft our menus using in-season northern flora and fauna, and constantly try fresh ways to bring traditional northern ingredients into contemporary cooking.

Nothing tastes better than a locally sourced dinner with the midsummer sun flickering in the splashes of the river. In the winter, a crackling fire in the hearth keeps you warm and cozy as the polar night outside reaches subzero temperatures.

Let us take you on a journey through the pure northern landscape through our dishes.
