Food & drinks in Scandinavia

Were you expecting a Viking feast with ale served in goat horns? Well, the food and drinks in Scandinavia are a little different these days. Luckily, we’re here to drag you out of medieval times and into the flourishing modern flavours of the Nordic capitals.

What will I eat and drink in Scandinavia?

Three cities mean three delightfully different and equally delicious destinations to get the taste buds tantalised.

In Stockholm, you’ll discover the Swedish taste for Fika – a coffee and a little something to eat, usually a pastry or a cake. Fika is a state-of-mind, and one clearly so important that they have a national Cinnamon Bun Day (October 4th in case you were wondering!). It’s not all sweet stuff – and it’s not all about the delicious famous meatballs either…though they are delicious – and you can discover the diversity of flavours in Södermalm. This working-class area is now a treasure trove of vibrant bohemian restaurants, which you can discover with us on our Culinary Södermalm Food Tour.

In Oslo, you’ll find that the Norwegian’s delight in food and drinks is not just restricted to fish and beer. There are many other foods to enjoy…and beer. Yeah, the beer is important and with a rich tradition of brewing in Norway, Oslo’s microbreweries are the places to visit, offering a range of flavours to go with traditional Norwegian food. With the country’s Atlantic coastline it’s easy to see Norwegians love seafood, yet meat, root vegetables and the curious and surprisingly delicious brunost (a sweet brown cheese) provides the perfect compliment. Our tour Oslo’s Craft Beer & Bites will give you a flavour of what’s on offer.

We can’t talk about food and drinks in Scandinavia without mentioning the Danes’ love for a potbelly full of pork! A sight-seeing snack of a classic red pølse – a hot dog served with ketchup, fried onions and gherkins – is a beloved national institution while their dish of Stegtflæsk, being crispy pork with parsley sauce and potatoes, cannot be ignored. Just looking for a small break to seeing the sights? Then the capital of one of the happiest countries in the world offers a multitude of cosy cafes to get a sip of that famous ‘hygge’ and snug vibe the Danes are famous for. If you’ll let us we’ll happily show you with our tour Copenhagen’s Beer, Bites & Blasts from the Past.
