Lappische Leckerbissen vom Feuer
Geniesse ein landestypisch zubereitetes Essen auf dem Feuer. Ich begrüsse dich in meinem Garten, wo ein Tipi Zelt steht. Diese Art Zelte werden auch heute noch von Rentierzüchtern benutzt. In der heimeligen Lavvo am Lagerfeuer schmecken die lappischen Pfannkuchen mit geräuchertem Rentierfleisch gleich doppelt so gut. Zur Nachspeise serviere ich lappischen Kaffee vom Feuer & lappischen Käse mit Beerensauce. Für Vegetarier / Veganer bereite ich die Pfannkuchen vegetarisch / vegan zu. Wir bewegen uns gerne in der Natur in Lappland, deshalb ist Kochen und Grillen auf dem offenen Feuer hier fester Bestandteil der Kultur. Die Einheimischen wissen ein gutes Lagerfeuer sehr zu schätzen. In gemütlicher Runde erzähle ich euch von meinem Leben in Lappland, der Kultur des Nordens, Natur und Tierwelt, Geschichten und Sagen zu den Nordlichtern, und alles, was ihr schon immer wissen wolltet. Falls ihr euch für Nordlichtfotografie interessiert, gebe ich euch auch gerne meine Tipps und Tricks dazu preis. Im Sommer gebe ich Auskunft über die besten Plätze, wo man die Mitternachtssonne ausgiebig geniessen kann. Bitte beachten: - Informationen zu einer speziellen Diät / Allergien bitte bei Buchung angeben; ich kann alle Wünsche berücksichtigen - Diese Aktivität ist nicht geeignet für Kinder unter 14 Jahren Ich bin flexibel mit den Daten. Andere Daten und Zeiten auf Anfrage möglich.

Blueberry Grown under the 24/7 sun, full of a taste of life – totally a different breed than the cultivated push blueberries. Lingonberry A bit bitter and sharp in taste, this opinion divider might be the healthiest of the set.
