The Smak Food Festival highlights the very best of local food production, along with some of the unique cuisine available in Northern Norway.
Tromsø has long been a fishing city, and ‘Smak’ (the Norwegian word for ‘taste’) will provide plenty of opportunities to taste a whole host of seafood dishes prepared entirely with locally-sourced ingredients.
The center of the festival is Storgata, Tromsø’s main street, which will be lined with more than 60 tents with exhibitors selling fresh food from regional farmers and fishermen, plus good drinks and a wide variety of prepared dishes for you to try.
Join the ‘Food & Wine Tour’, which runs several times a day, for a guided excursion around the various booths. Several cooking courses and a cocktail-mixing course will be available as well.
Each night there are also ‘After-Smak’ events, where the festive mood moves to a local pub. Expect good eats paired with great drinks.
