ENJOY EVERYTHING FROM BURGERS TO FINE DININGLocal game and fish dishes, wild berries and herbs
ORGANIC, HOME-MADE AND LOCAL SPECIALTIES
The finest organic ingredients are an important part of our kitchen in Muonio. Allow yourself to indulge in northern flavours.
NATURAL, FRESH FLAVOURS
We cherish our local wild ingredients here in Muonio. Reindeer and game especially from elk and forest birds are the backbone of our kitchen. For dessert we recommend that you taste our local pastry called mettäkakko. It’s a combination of a biscuit and a sweet bun. Double your indulgence!
CLEAN RIVERS, LAKES AND FELL CREEKS ARE FULL OF FISH
Pike, whitefish, vendace, burbot, perch, and ruffe are some of the fish found in our lakes. In the rivers, you’ll catch wild salmon and grayling.
Pick vitamin-rich foods in the forests and marshes. There are plenty of berries to choose from: cloudberries, cranberries, lingonberries and blueberries. Sample our delicious mushrooms: ceps, chanterelles, and milkcaps. Go wild with wild herbs, such as stinging nettle, spruce, rosebay willowherb and hierochloe, not forgetting Angelica, a medicinal herb growing under the midnight sun. Take your pick.
SHORT AND BRIGHT GROWING SEASON MAKES EVERYTHING MORE AROMATIC
Thanks to the midnight sun and white nights, our berries, herbs and vegetables are particularly aromatic and flavoursome. In the Finnish Lapland, the Golf Stream warms the air unlike in some other Arctic areas thus giving the plants a unique scent and taste. One of Lapland’s specialties is puikulaperuna, a small, almond-shaped potato that was granted the Protected Designation of Origin by the EU, the first in Finland.
