Bydalen

Show on google maps Famous for its accessible nature, this landscape in the north west of Sweden boasts breathtaking mountain sceneries and infinite fir forests. Here, the seasons are clearly defined and the countryside gracefully accommodates the waters. In the rippling streams you can fish for char and other game fish, and in the valleys you can search for generous servings of the edible gold known as the cloudberry. Used to make a delicious jam, as well as a variety of food and beverages, the cloudberry is also boosts your immune system. Reserve spots at this table and enjoy the beautiful surroundings together with friends and family. The table is located in Bydalen about 85 minutes by car from Östersund.
The table is bookable every Thursday between July to September.

How it works

1. Book your seats at the table for free. Please note that the booking is for seats at the table and DIY recipes – no meals are included in the booking. The table is bookable every Thursday between July to September.

2.Once you’ve made a reservation you will receive an email from your local contact about the experience and how to book add-ons like a cooking kit with basic supplies, a local chef or a foraging guide, accommodation and more

Why book add-ons? Foraging and cooking in nature is a fun and rewarding experience, but can also be a bit of a challenge. Why not book an add-on like a cooking kit or a local foraging guide? It makes it more relaxed and gives you the chance to learn more about the region and its cuisine.

Jämtland

Besides the fine do-it-yourself dining at The Edible Country, you won’t be short of adventure in Jämtland. The summer time offers canoeing, wild game watching and horse riding, and the winter provides opportunities for alpine skiing, ice climbing, reindeer sleigh rides and much more.  Some of Sweden’s best streaming waters and a great spot for fly fishing can be found just around 30 minutes from the table by car at Kvissleströmmarna

If you are into walking and hiking Jämtland has plenty on offer. In the mountain resort Åre you can take the cable car up to Åreskutan. At 1,274 metres above sea level this makes it the highest most accessible mountain in Sweden. For a longer hike try the thousand-year-old St Olavsleden, a pilgrim path from the Swedish to the Norwegian coast, through villages, forests and over mountains. Read more about the activities in Jämtland
