A dining experience to remember forever is guaranteed when you join us for this 3-course dinner in “kota” - a traditional lappish hut located on a private island surrounded by northern wilderness and free flowing river.

It might be freezing and snowing outside, but the fire and candles inside Kota will keep both your body and mind warm. You’ll get to witness the main course of the night, glow-fried salmon, being prepared on the open fire. After your taste buds have been tickled and your hunger satisfied, you can take a after-meal stroll around the atmospheric island – remember to keep an eye on the sky for the possible northern lights! Please see an example menu below:

​​Hors d’oeuvre: Taste of Lapland amuse bouche

Starter: Creamy seasonal vegetable soup

Main course: Glow-fried salmon from the fire, smooth mashed potatoes and fresh coleslaw  

Dessert: Pancakes made on fire with local berry jam

Please note: Dietary restrictions and allergies will be taken into account when informed in advance. This is a great alternative to a special dinner in a city center restaurant but not an alternative for fine dining as the wilderness dinner is meant as a simple, but hearty winter meal made with local fresh produce. The menu may vary depending on seasonality or availability of products.
