The tastes of Nordlys


Flavours inspired by the mountains, seas and aurora thrive throughout Nordlys

Take your taste buds on a culinary journey as vivid as the Northern Lights are bright. From traditional Nordic dining to modern haute cuisine, the flavours of Nordlys are vibrant, varied and distinctly different.

Begin your exploration of flavour on the frozen fjords of Kirkenes aboard a king crab safari. With a claw to claw span of up to two metres, the impressive king crab was only introduced to Norwegian waters in the 1960s, but has since become a huge national delicacy. Once you catch and feast upon its succulent spoils, you’ll soon understand why.

Returning to land, you’ll discover the ancient fishing villages of Lofoten. These finely-preserved settlements date back to the 1800s and sit alongside shimmering fjords and towering snow-capped mountains. The fresh flavours of the sea have dominated menus on these islands for centuries, so expect a distinctly rustic taste of Nordlys here.

Venture far north to Longyearbyen on the remote islands of Svalbard and you’ll discover delicious ice-cold refreshment at the northernmost brewery on earth. Using only the very best ingredients, the Svalbard Bryggeri proudly lays claim to the world’s only Polar Beer and there’s simply no better brew to raise a toast to Nordlys.

But for the ultimate taste of Nordlys, luxury chocolatier Craig Alibone serves up a selection of northern lights inspired chocolates which are – like the aurora itself – visually stunning. Not to mention delicious!
