Please Your Tummy with Exclusive Lappish Delicacies

Winter temperatures are high and rigid in Lapland. From December to February, you may experience between 16 and 3 degrees below zero! Thus, if you plan to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Lapland, you should have a sweet tooth of warm and lip-smacking plates from Lappish cuisine like these: 

  • Reindeer meat

Visiting Lapland without savoring its iconic reindeer meat is like being in Rome and forget about taking nice photos of the old-age Colosseum. Sautéed and served with mashed potatoes or loganberries – edible Arctic fruits, this divine-tasting dish has mild and pleasant tastes.

Paired with cloudberries and fruity jam, it’s usually served as a sweet dessert in restaurants. So, when you sail across arctic waters onboard Ragnar, ask your master chef to prep delightful leipäjuusto for your breakfast.
