Flavours of Norway
Flavours of Norway
During your voyage, we invite you to enjoy a variety of Norwegian foods that are sourced from the sun-kissed mountainsides of the fjords, and the cold clean sea along one of the most unspoiled coastlines in the world.
Our location along the coast will determine the menu on board Havila Voyages. This gives great freedom of choice and fosters a closer appreciation of the different parts of the country in which you are sailing.
Havila Voyages has divided the world’s most beautiful sea voyage into four parts, each with its own unique flavours and dishes. This means that the menu changes every three days, so you can also go on a culinary voyage of discovery, with something new and exciting every day. At the same time, we also have some set dishes so that you can enjoy those you like best throughout your trip
Whichever you choose, the flavours are based on the best ingredients from the land as well as the world’s best seafood from the clean, cold waters of the Norwegian Sea.
Flavours of the Fjords
On the Bergen–Trondheim route, we source ingredients from the sun-drenched mountainsides that line the fjords and from the depths of the sea. The flavour of apples and cherries intensifies during the bright summer nights, and our good friends along the coast deliver fresh treats from the sea.
Flavours of the polar region
Between Bodø and Honningsvåg we sail through the Lofoten Islands, so the menu will include Lofoten cod, Norwegian cod roe, dried fish and cloudberries. If you fancy some meat, then why not try our free-range pork from the world heritage site of Vega?
Flavours of the Arctic
The voyage from Kirkenes to Svolvær takes you through the harsh, Arctic northern area. Here, long-legged king crabs crawl about in the cold dark depths of the ocean, and on land, herds of reindeer graze in the tundra. Naturally, crab and reindeer feature on the menu during this part of the voyage as well as cured leg of a lamb, Arctic char and seaweed.
Flavours of the archipelago
From Rørvik and south towards Bergen, the voyage runs through a archipelago where the rich waters have always provided both food and livelihoods. You can try klipfish and herring, both of which have been valuable exports from Norway for centuries, and local treats such as halibut and brown crab.
Add a little extra to your voyage

Norwegian Food Culture
Far north the summer nights are bright and the temperatures low. Everything matures slowly and gathers a lot of flavor. And from the short summer the food is harvested to last for a year.
