Stockholm is full of great unpopulated expanses just begging to be explored on foot, climbed, rowed or sailed across. Together with Talisker and Fejan Outdoor we went out to the northern part of Stockholm’s archipelago and enjoyed whisky tasting on the cliffs, the glamping site at the small island of Fejan and a delicious dinner made by the Danish chef Mikkel Karstad.
On a sunny Wednesday morning I joined a concept called Scandinavian Detours, a concept were dramatic nature meets delicious food and great drinks. We started off by taking a boat up north to an island called Gisslingö. At the island we met up with Fejan Outdoor, who organize adventurous tours in the northern part of the Stockholm archipelago.
Along some snacks we then hiked the island and met up with Talisker whisky and had a tasting by the cliffs. Definitely the most scenic tasting I’ve ever been to and the Talisker Port Ruighe, Talisker Skye and Talisker 10 suited the windswept surroundings perfect.
After the delightful tasting we took the boat to the next island Fejan, for some dinner prepared over open fire by the talented Danish chef Mikkel Karstad as well as cocktails prepared by Mate Csatlos.
