4 days of kayaklng, foraging and cooking in the wild
Wilderness cooking at its best
Learn to cook advanced meals on an open fire, using local and foraged ingredients. There is something so special about sharing a meal around the fire, it connects us – to nature, to the past, to each other. This unique tour is all about making that connection stronger.
Foraging by kayak
Islands with pine, spruce, deciduous trees, sea meadows, rocky outcrops, long-since abandoned settlements. They’re all different habitats that offer a variety of ingredients to forage. Your kayaking guide leads the way through the maze of islands.
Do the culinary north
We cook Swedish and archipelago cuisine, appreciating what the season and the surrounding landscape has to offer. Your wilderness chef will meet you at predetermined camp spots, already preparing for an evening and morning full of wild cooking as a team.
As local as it gets
When we say local ingredients, we really mean it. We slow-cook lamb from one of the islands, and wild boar and venison from a hunter nearby. We use vegetables and eggs from a farm on the mainland, and for our last feast the fisherman arrives with his catch of the day.
Mother nature's pantry
June and September are the best months for foraging in Saint Anna. We’ll find greens, shoots, berries, mushrooms, roots & nuts, and find creative ways to use our wild harvest.
Master of the embers
Perfecting a skill with subtle variations that demands a keen sense of the elements – that’s a very fun challenge to take on. We learn how to use a cast-iron pan, Dutch Oven and waffle-iron on the fire.
