In the winter, northern lights, wild storms, and cod fishing, and in summer the beauty of the midnight sun. The weather changes are as fascinating as nature itself. Life up here challenging and beautiful.

 

But Lofoten’s beauty goes far deeper, deep into the sea. Our ocean is unique, because the warm gulf stream flows under the cold arctic waters and creates a huge amount of movement of nutrients and provides the basis for a unique and diverse under water life. Here you will find among other things the world’s largest cold water coral reefs and the largest cod population in the world. Nappstraumen has one of the world’s strongest tidal currents and this fast-flowing, nutrient-rich water provides optimal growth conditions for seaweed and kelp. It is here that we harvest, sustainably whilst closely monitoring the ecosystem to ensure minimal impact.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” background_color=”#b2cad0″ padding_top=”35″ padding_bottom=”40″ z_index=”” el_id=”desktop-view”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Lofoten Traditions

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text]In Lofoten, we have lived by and off the sea for thousands of years and marine life has been the basis for our survival on these harsh islands.
Every winter, the Arctic cod embark on a journey from the far north to spawn in Lofoten. A journey that provides the basis for life for an entire region. The cod fish or ´skrei´ is hung on large drying racks to dry in the sun and wind. This natural process is what produces the famous dried fish called stock fish.

The mild winter unique to Lofoten provides the ideal conditions for drying and gives Lofoten´s stockfish the highest quality, so good that it has the honor of being able to achieve the EU’s protected geographical indication (PGI) logo, just like champagne from the Champagne region in France.

There has also been a historical tradition for seaweed. Back in the day, the Vikings had extensive knowledge of the nutritious and healing properties of seaweed, and søl (dulse) along with stockfish, were used as nutritious food sources on their long journeys. Due to its meaty and rich taste, Søl was also a popular snack next to a glass of mead. However, with plentiful access to fish, the seaweed traditions that were oncebecame lost along the way.

Lofoten Traditions

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text]For the traditional fishing families, the ocean is like a family member. We have lived off the ocean for thousands of years and marine life has been the foundation of our existence in harsh and precarious conditions. This is especially true for the seasonal winter fishing.

 

Every winter, the Arctic cod travel down from the far north to breed in Lofoten. This incredible migration has created a lifeline in the islands and has made the region thrive for millenniums. The cod is dried on racks and becomes known as stockfish, a well-known ingredient not just for local food, but also for many European countries such as Italy, Spain and Portugal. The climate here is excellent for drying fish and makes stockfish from Lofoten a high quality product that holds EU’s Logo of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), just like champagne from the Champagne region in France. How cool is that?!With plentiful access to fish, the seaweed traditions became lost along the way, leaving only the local sheep to enjoy the oceanic superfood all by themselves! Back in the day, the Vikings had extensive knowledge of the nutritious and healing properties of seaweed, and søl (dulse) along with stockfish, were used as nutritious food sources on their long journeys. Dulse was also used as a beer snack – just for it’s meaty and full-flavoured taste. A real viking treat!
Using both of these local food sources with a splash of Japanese cuisine as inspiration, our products get the best of two very different worlds.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
