An out of this world food experience: Fäviken Magasinet

If you are a food lover, and have always wanted to do "foodie" trip, then read on - I've found something quite unique. Fäviken Magasinet is not simply somewhere to stay - they call it a restaurant with accommodation. If you're a fussy eater, give it a miss but if you're up for a totally different food experience, then this is for you.

It is located in the North of Sweden, and is not easy to get to (it's 80km from Östersund airport, which has daily flights from Stockholm) but those who have been say it's well worth the effort. The dining experience is based on using produce from the region, and from the farm on which the restaurant is situated. 

Chef Magnus Nilsson is one of the hottest names in the food and restaurant world. It's hard to sum up what you should expect, but think pre-dinner gin and locally fermented rhubarb juice followed by around 20 different dishes (some tiny appetisers) such as clams; diced cow's heart; moss chips, and  homemade liqueurs. Not for the faint hearted!

The 12-seater restaurant has made it onto the '50 best restaurants in the world' list, and is becoming legendary among those who travel the world looking for new food experiences. The scenery is stunning in this area, and considering the estate spans almost ten thousand hectares, you can do some seriously exploring here!
