the archipelago

Welcome to taste the archipelago with all your senses!

Salty seawater, smoked fish, squeaking seagulls and sun-warmed cliffs. This is the archipelago in a nutshell, but there is so much more! Here you will find locally produced meat, locally grown vegetables, apple orchards and fields full of cereals and potatoes. Here we live all year round, many on what nature has to offer, and now we want to share this with you. A weekend filled with flavour and experiences for your senses, not just the sense of taste. Welcome!
