Linda Fjellheim (Reisa AS) invites guests for a guided tour and tasting at the world’s northernmost syrup factory. Her small factory at Kronebutikken produces syrup and jelly from wild, locally sourced berries.
With its long winter and short but intense summer, the North Norwegian climate contributes to berries with unique flavour and sweetness, making them ideal for processing into various products. Linda will provide an explanation of berry harvesting and syrup production during the tour.
Inger Birkelund, Ihana!, conveys the local culture and history. Enjoy refreshments combined with storytelling, legends and folk songs, either at the historic and artistic venue Kronebutikken or in the great outdoors!
The fertile nature at Ovi Raishiin (Visitors’ Point) at the gateway to Reisa National Park is an exotic setting for such events. You will learn more about the meeting of the three tribes who throughout history have meant so much to North Troms.
