Where To Eat

It’s a small town so there are limited places to eat. However you will still get a flavor for the different foods of the region such as Elk and Reindeer. I ate at two places, one of which is the Björk Restaurant which sits in the middle of the slope. The view is amazing and the food is just as good.
