Autumn in Sweden for foodies


Autumn is the “cosy season” when Swedes light their homes with many tea lights and meet up for a ‘fika’ at quaint cafés as rain and darkness fall outside.

Foodies are in for a treat. Autumn is the ideal season to join a seafood safari on the west coast of Sweden. The first Monday after 20 September marks the start of the lobster harvesting season, but you can also join a local fishing boat to catch oysters, mussels and crayfish – or learn how to identify, harvest and cook seaweed. If you prefer to stay on land, there is another range of foraging options. The forests of Sweden are berry heaven and you won’t have to go far to find blueberries, lingonberries and raspberries. To find mushrooms, hiring an expert is highly recommended. In mid-October, it’s time for the Gotland Truffle Month. Join a truffle hunt or enjoy special truffle menus at restaurants around the island.
