Talking Smak: First-ever Svalbard food festival offers locally-produced and internationally acclaimed food, lessons


You can revisit Svalbard’s cuisine of the 1600s with a meal of seal prepared four ways – including dessert. Be part of the über-hipster one percent for a day by “drinking icebergs” and ultra-premium bottled water from five other countries. Drink and dine on famous chef cuisine for hours late into the night, and then get up very early for hours more of food, ginger shots and a requirement to “dance yourself morning-happy.”

And if food for the mind and soul is your thing, there’s everything from gardening to history lectures to sushi lessons.
