Norway for Foodies News from Up Norway

Up Norway announces a new culinary tour of Trondheim-Trøndelag, Norway — the 2022 European Region of Gastronomy. The eight-day self-guided road trip includes daily food and beverage tastings, food foraging, workshops on sustainable food production plus Norwegian Food Heritage combined with scenic views and UNESCO World Heritage Sites/

Celebrating its distinction as this year’s European Region of Gastronomy, Up Norway is now offering a journey through the culinary region of Trøndelag. Highlights of the eight-day/seven-night Norway for Foodies offering include high-quality local food; daily culinary experiences like microbrew tastings and food foraging; insight on biodynamic farming, sustainable food production, and the history of Norwegian food heritage.

Additionally, raw nature on the coast and in the mountains, charming farm and boutique hotel stays, and visits to historical sites are on tap.

Norwegian food heritage is a part of the country’s cultural identity and a valuable factor in empowering and enabling participation in Norwegian society for a sustainable economy. The first area in Norway to be assigned the honor, Trondheim-Trøndelag was named as the European Region of Gastronomy for 2022 by the International Institute of Gastronomy, Culture, Arts and Tourism. The city will also play host to the European semi-final of the biennial world chef championship Bocuse d’Or in 2024.

Up Norway’s Norway for Foodies starts in Trondheim, the “Home of Nordic Flavors”. Here, travelers start their culinary journey with a local resident who hosts a stellar dinner party of homemade dishes served in harmony with local entertainment. The next day, a historical walking tour of the city, including a ‘Hidden Rooms’ tour of the Nidaros Cathedral, is included before dining at one of the city’s three Michelin star restaurants. Before heading out into the country, Up Norway can also arrange for a tea tasting with Norway’s most experienced tea blender, wine tasting with a five-time winner of the Norwegian Wine Championship or a private guide at the modern K-U-K art gallery. Accommodations while in Trondheim are at the renowned Britannia Hotel.

Norway for FoodiesNext up on the Journey is heading out to the countryside to forage for, and then enjoy, edible wild herbs, vegetables and mushrooms harvested from land and sea. Post-lunch, travelers will head North towards The Golden Road, a detour filled with activities and attractions themed around food, beer and spirits. Dinner and accommodations are at Øyna Culture Landscape Hotel, with panoramic views of the idyllic rural countryside and the Trondheimsfjord, and dinner is a true showcase of the region’s very best local food and beverage producers – from just down the road.

The next few days, it’s on to the coast to Stokkøya island. Here travelers can enjoy matauk (foraging produce from the sea) and a signature mussel lunch with beer produced at the local island brewery before relaxing at their accommodations at Stokkøya Beach Hotel, whose philosophy is to combine the elements of nature, architecture, food, and activity. One can spend their days and evenings at leisure, walking or cycling to admire the urban architecture and coastal landscape, kayaking along the sandy beach, or simply lazing by the sea.

As the Journey comes to an end, travelers will head back towards Trondheim, but not without a stop to one of the region’s standout biodynamic farms. A meal complete with products from the farm and the nearby Orkanger area, full of talented dairy producers and one of Norway’s best salmon rivers, rounds out the Norway for Foodies Journey.

Available year-round, pricing for Norway for Foodies starts at $4,006 USD per person based on two guests traveling together.

Established in 2016, Up Norway’s vision is to introduce quality-conscious international travelers to truly unique Norwegian experiences.
