North Norwegian Cuisine

Cod, coley, Atlantic halibut, herring, haddock and red bream from the most bountiful sea in the world, reindeer, elk, sheep and goats from the Northern Norwegian forests, mountains and plateaus. The food in Northern Norway is among the very best. Atlantic cod in February, a festive reindeer stew served in a Sami tent, fresh coley cooked on the shore on a summer evening or some lefse (Norwegian flatbread) with sugar, butter and brown cheese at a ferry café; the food is both varied and entertaining in Northern Norway.
