Gävleborg is made up of two provinces; Hälsingland to the north and Gästrikland in the south. Come and indulge in the unique food culture of Hälsingland and turn back the clock to a time when farming and fishing were thriving industries in this county.

Today, the sea, the forests and the small farms and crofts produce mouth-watering local ingredients. From classic fish delicacies and dairy specialities, to a colourful littering of berries and mushrooms from the fairy-tale forests, you’re guaranteed a tasty natural treat. The table is located in the rolling hills of Hälsingland, above the village of Orbaden. Witness mesmerising views that stretch along the Ljusnan River Valley below, and out across the neighbouring meadows to the dense forests beyond.

Booking will open soon.

Eating in Swedish nature. Swedish forests are filled with edible treats such as berries, mushroom, nettles and other greens, and they are of course best enjoyed in the outdoors.
