Flavours of the North

Culinary Creativity

Jávri restaurant is a private restaurant for hotel guests only.

When your days are spent exploring Mother Nature’s bounty some 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, it’s only fitting that meals be as hearty and sustaining as possible. And while Jávri Lodge’s culinary team will ensure that you’re satiated, it also promises an exceptional and creative menu. Changing daily, it reflects both seasonality and availability, and is determined by the organic ingredients delivered by our local trusted and reliable gatherers, fishermen, reindeer herders and hunters.

Indeed, the provenance of our produce is key: our fisherman delivers king crab from Northern Norway, we get wild fresh fish from nearby lakes, and our reindeer and game products are from a small neighbourhood family business.

Dishes only limited by the chef’s imagination

Dinner is a five- to seven-course extravaganza, showcasing wild fish, matsutake and other local mushrooms, berries and other local organic delicacies, paired with exquisite wines from small European vineyards. Maybe a matsutake gnocchi and king crab tortellini one night; reindeer tartar, lamb filet and cloudberry sorbet another. Dining is always a creative and tasty surprise, depending on the season and availability, and otherwise only limited by the chef’s imagination.

Here, you get to share the passion for our environment and love of good food – and, most importantly, to enjoy all of this without hurry and at peace.
