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.

  • LAKE INARI FISH, kyeli

    Fishing has always been the main economy of local Inarisaami. The red trout that breeds in Juutua River, has always been the best catch. Whitefish must be the best in Finland. It is a cornerstone of local life. Even in the Inarisami language the name for whitefish is simply kyeli, meaning also ‘fish’ in general. Also pike has been an important fish for us and airdried pike, koškepuško can be considered the symbol of our culture.

  • ANGELICA, puurrâmrääsi

    is a traditional Saami herbal plant that was used for preventing illnesses. Now we use it in cooking, in drinks and we also make a nice herbal vodka schnapps with it.

  • KAMCHATKA CRAB, konagâsrapu

    We consider Varangerfjord to be our neighbourhood, as we have historical connections to the area. From the fjord we get a real Arctic delicacy, Kamtschatka crab.

  • LAPPISH POTATO, pottáák

    is a protected EU trademark similar to Parma ham. The fine aroma of this potato comes from the special arctic growth conditions and our endless summer light.
