Day 1: Røros
Røros was founded in 1644 when copper ore was discovered in the area. Today, Røros is a living museum and a quality-stamped ‘Sustainable Destination’, working systematically to reduce the environmental impact of tourism while preserving the town’s history, character and nature. Last but not least, Røros is known as one of Norway’s leading regions for locally produced foods.
Day 2: A UNESCO Heritage Site
Venture out on a guided food safari, where the finest farm produce – cheese, meat, beer, etc. – will be on the menu. You will experience the genuine flavours of the Røros region, while visiting food producers on farms and at restaurants.
Day 3: The Golden Detour
The Golden Road is a detour filled with experiences themed around sustainable foods (and beer!) and handicrafts. Have lunch in an old storehouse and make sure you don’t miss places such as Øyna.
Day 4-5: A Costal Pearl
A three hour drive from Inderøy to Stokkøya Sjøsenter. Enjoy a signature mussel lunch. The next day you will venture out on a kayak excursion followed by an outstanding seafood dinner in the evening.
Day 6: Farm to Table
Drive to Trondheim, the culinary center of Norway, and on the way visit the farm Skjølberg Søndre to learn about biodynamic farming and unique Norwegian produce. Follow the food from the farm to the table with dinner at restaurant Credo, one of Norway’s best restaurants. Credo is run by chef and co-owner Heidi Bjerkan, who champions more knowledge of sustainable food, better farming and for greater interest in traditions.
In 2019 Heidi Bjerkan won the first ever Michelin Nordic Guide Sustainability Award and restaurant Credo got their first Michelin star!
Stay at the newly renovated Britannia Hotel – a hotel with more than 148 years of history which was awarded its first Michelin star in 2020 (Speilsalen restaurant).
Day 7-8: Home of Nordic Flavours
Surrounded by countless small and large scale food producers, Trondheim is the city in Norway with the strongest focus on local food. Experience the delicious use of local produce when eating breakfast in beautiful Palmehaven at Britannia Hotel.
Arrangements to suit your tastes and interests will be made on your behalf; tea tasting at Sellanraa, kayaking down the Nidelven River, or maybe a massage in the Britannia spa?
For dinner you get to visit a charming local, Bjørn. Bjørn has two passions in life: food and music. In his tiny red house in Ila he will serve you a well prepared meal made from the best local produce, whilst keeping you entertained with his stories and songs.
