Jämtland is a real hub for some of the best food of the whole Nordic region. Locally produced, organic, local game, artisinal, foraged and prepared with great skill and care, Jämtland is a truly gastronomic delight of a region to taste your way through. This is reflected in the food that will be served to you on your adventure with us. Whether at our collaborating hotel restaurants and destillery or out by the camp fire, these local foods form the basis of all the meals that are served to you along the journey.
When not out in the wilderness exploring, we house our guests at two of the most authentic and unique hotels and lodges in the region.
Buustamons Fjällgård is a mountain lodge in a nature reserve off the beaten track but with one of the region`s best restaurants (selected Best in the White Guide 2017). Here you will find yourself in a true genuine Swedish historic ski lodge setting with nicely decorated no frills rooms, outside hot tub, traditional sauna and a magnificent restaurant serving local delicacies in a space where even the walls breathe cultural history and Swedish traditions. Buustamon also has its own distillery on site which produces bespoke Swedish Brännvin, a Swedish snaps, using locally sourced and foraged ingredients. In the bar, even the ice is made from a mountain spring.
Hotel Åregården is the oldest hotel in Åre Village and has been lovingly looked after ever since its inauguration as a ski sports hotel in 1895. The rooms here provide great comfort with carefully selected designs and décor. They have two restaurants and their own wine bar as well as a lobby bar & restaurant popular with the locals. Right next door to the hotel sits one of the region`s best Swedish and Sami crafts stores and there is walking distance to ski lifts, several other restaurants & bars.
At The 8 Seasons Sami village, you will stay in newly furbished yet traditionally shaped cottages right in the camp and right next to a river.
Here everything is done in the indigenous Sami way and as the family on site are traditional reindeer herders, it is the natural pace of the reindeer that ultimately guides life here. Read more about the Sami and the 8 seasons.
