The Edible Country at Salthamn

Visit Sweden has placed culinary tables in some of the most beautiful places in Sweden. We want to share our passion and curiosity about nature experience and genuine Swedish tastes, in combination and harmony. Guests are invited to cook a meal with tastes of raw produce they can gather themselves in nature. One of the tables is here at Salthamn, a magical place located on the largest island in Sweden, Gotland.

Salthamn – Harvested from the wild

Salthamn is slightly secretive place where we want the wild to embrace you and let you connect with nature. Is an oasis where we want to offer you the taste of the things we harvest and process from the wild. We find our treasures in the forest, at the sea and the meadows around us at Salthamn.

At the table at Salthamn you will find yourself sitting in the fields of ramson close the gnarled pines and right next to the glittering Baltic and enjoying in a scenic setting. Welcome into the wild.

We want you to experience the tastes of Gotland

The calcareous soil and the mild maritime climate with many hours of sun makes Gotland produces amazing produce and the larder of natural produces are rich. You can find things at the pantry of Gotland that you normally find in the Mediterranean region- such as figs, asparagus and Bourgogne truffle. 

Depending on the time of the year and season, we pick and prepare food from the larder around us and from farms close by us. Herbs, wild garlic, spruce shoots, nettles, berries – the list of eatable things we can forage is long and we promise an unique culinary nature experience.
