Walking tour: a taste of the Arctic

Date: Saturday 20 jul 2019 - Monday 30 Sep 2019

Learn about the local food traditions during this culinary walking tour of Honningsvåg.

As a result of its proximity to the Barents Sea, North Cape has developed a flourishing fishing industry. Cod, saithe, salmon, halibut, haddock and king crab are just a few examples of what our superior fishing grounds have to offer.
On top of the exquisite seafood, the north has many other delicacies to offer. The main purpose of reindeer husbandry is the meat industry and reindeer meat has a very high nutritious value. As the demand exceeds the offer, prices stay relatively high and make reindeer meat a very exclusive product.
And for those of you with a strong craving for sweets, of course there is the illustrious cloudberry. This arctic berry is very popular for use in preserves, tarts and other confections, but is quite hard to come by as each female plant only produces a few berries.
