Foodie Mountain Retreat

Foodie Mountain Retreat

Experience true Swedish wilderness living, including the art of 'fika', in the mountains of Jämtland

Unwind and unplug from daily life and get back to basics on this foodie mountain retreat in Sweden. You'll discover that, if you know how to live in tune with nature, 'basic' can be luxury!

Go snow-shoeing or hiking and fishing with our local guide before retiring to our remote, off-grid cabin for a feast of local produce prepared for you by a private chef.

Relax, soak up the silence, and immerse yourself in traditional mountain life.

Where is the adventure based?

Storlien, Jämtland county, is on the border between Sweden and Norway. It is a mountain village with a lot of history and traditions. This area is known for wild nature, three different cultures (Norwegian, Sami and Swedish), and a life in harmony with nature.

Are you able to cater for specific diets?

Please let us know if you have any food allergies or require a specific diet when you make your reservation and we will do our best to give you a great foodie experience.

What will the weather be like?

The weather in the mountains can change rapidly, and there can be snow even during summer. Winter season is November to late April, depending on whether conditions. During March the evenings are bright and days are warmer. We can expect temperatures down to -15 degrees celsius, with an average of +0 degrees

How many people will there be in the group?

We only operate small group tours in order to minimise our impact on the landscapes and communities we visit.

We take a minimum of 6 and maximum of 10 people in each group to ensure that everyone gets the most from their Foodie Mountain Retreat experience.

Private trips also available.

YOUR LOCAL PARTNER

Ellen

the local members BEHIND

Foodie Mountain Retreat

Ellen, Sofie and Lena have worked closely together to create this rejuvenating, off-grid adventure in the north of Jamtland Harjedalen. Ellen, our in-destination local partner, moved to Funasdalen in the west of Harjedalen six years ago and describes her local area as a place full of wonderful people, good food and never-ending adventure. Sofie, your hiking guide, has been exploring these mountains her whole life. They are her home, and she wants you to feel home here too. Lena is driven by her passion for sustainability and the relationship between Jamtland’s food and its people. Lena’s cooking celebrates the mountains, forests and lakes you will be exploring.

We are proud to work with local partners and members who share our passion for slow adventure, sustainability and regeneration. With help and recommendations from Ellen, Sofie & Lena, we have a number of conservation projects in Jamtland Harjedalen that you can support by booking with Slow Adventure.
