Captivating Croatia being one of the main one, which leads people on AMAZING vacations to exotic Croatia. Check out an incredible trip I put together below...

In addition to the above, guests will experience numerous other excursions including winery visits and tastings, and much more! Our home base for much of this tour is the Istria area of Croatia, which is in the Northern part of Croatia and is very close to Italy. This peninsula area is known as the Tuscany of Croatia. Istria simply soothes the soul with captivating and compelling scenery which is only enhanced by the amazing food and wines of the area. Truffles, meats, cheese and wine dominate the culinary landscape.

  • Fly Fishing, Wild Foods, Midnight Sun: Northern Sweden

    Luleå Airport

    FLY FISHING AND WILD FOODS IN THE LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN ( http://www.saveurthejourney.com/fly-fishing-and-wild-foods-in-the-land-of-the-midnight-sun/ ) Mountains around Kvikkjokk, Sweden July 15-23, 2018 9 days, 8 Nights A lake in the Swedish Mountains (Fjäll) in July. Join Saveur the Journey (http://www.saveurthejourney.com (http://www.saveurthejourney.com/)) for a Fly Fishing and Wild Food adventure in the Land of the Midnight Sun ( https://www.swedishlapland.com/ ). Sweden North of the Arctic circle is a unique place because of its natural beauty, remoteness, excellent fishing (view this short video from the Kristensson brothers), and access to wild foods such as reindeer, moose, Arctic char, Kalix caviar, Arctic grayling, brown trout, pike, perch, whitefish, sorrel, angelica, lingonberry, cloudberry, blueberry, crowberry, birch, fir, and pine. https://vimeo.com/227240156 Here we will have the opportunity to pursue the three main Salmonidae species of the Arctic, the brown trout, the striking Arctic char, and the beautiful Arctic grayling. Local guides will show us the best places to fish in small streams, lakes, and rivers. Fishing in the mountains can yield some surprisingly large brown trout if you know where to fish! We will travel by boat up a delta, then hike overland to our guide Vidar’s remote private wilderness fishing cabin situated on the Tsielekjåhkkå river that will become our base-camp. We will fish several sections of the Tsielekjåhkkå river for brown trout and Arctic grayling. We will also day hike to a mountain with a magnificent view and fish a small lake for Trout and Arctic Char. For a change we will take a boat out on the Lake Peuraure and fish for the huge Northern pike, delicious perch, and big trout We will eat remarkable food prepared by Sami Chef Kristoffer Åstrom ( http://biancabrandoncox.com/portfolio/akta-mat-magazine/ ) of Hotel Akerlunds, whose approach to traditional wild foods with a blend of ancient and modern techniques sets him apart as one of the best chefs of Northern Sweden. Eva Gunnare, food creator and owner of “Essence of Lapland ( http://eolapland.se/en/ )” will collaborate with Helena Lantta of “Sapmi Ren och Vilt ( http://sapmirenovilt.se/ )” for a unique meal that takes us through the seasons of the Arctic with an emphasis on Eva’s amazing foraged delicacies. Årrenjahka ( http://www.arrenjarka.se/default.aspx)mountain lodge is known for their local cuisine served in a beautiful setting in the Swedish Fjäll (mountains). The Indigenous people, the Sami, have lived here for thousands of years by fishing, herding reindeer, hunting, gathering, and growing crops (it is warmer than similar latitudes thanks to a warm gulf stream current). It remains a wild and remote area, Jokkmokk “kommun” (municipality) is roughly the size of New Jersey with a population of 5000 people. During the winter several weeks pass without the sun breaking the horizon, making for a cold clear winter filled with twilight, northern lights, and blanketed with a thick layer of pure white snow. During the summer the reverse happens and the sun remains continually in the sky providing 24 hours of daylight. This result is rapid growth from flora and fauna. The Fjäll (Swedish mountains) burst into a carpet of edible berries, reindeer calves grow quickly, and the fish bite all the time as they hurry to fortify themselves before the cold of winter returns. Here we can drink the cold pure water straight from the streams. We can tie knots in fly-line at midnight without a flashlight, watch reindeer browse lichens, and eat fish fresh from the river. Vidar’s wilderness fishing cabin has a traditional Swedish Sauna on the river where we can enjoy the heat of the wood stove and the cold of a beer after a day of fishing. We will dine on the abundance of wild foods that can be found all around us: Souvas ( http://en.slowfoodsapmi.com/ark--and-presidia-products.html)(the Sami delicacy of salted and smoked reindeer meat), moose burgers and steaks, whole roasted trout, Arctic char, or grayling, firm filets of perch with parsley and butter, or “quenelles de brochet ( http://www.fishing-in-france.com/french-fishing-guide/fish-dishes/pike-quenelles/ ).” Cloudberries (found only in the far north), as well as lingon and blueberry will garnish our breakfasts and desserts. Locally made sausages, cheeses, and bread will form our lunches and there will be plenty of time to comfortably sit around a crackling fire looking over the Swedish mountains and drink kokkaffe (Swedish boiled coffee) or enjoy a glass of wine or beer with friends back at the cabin. Beginner to expert fly fishers welcome. Our guides will help all levels stalk and catch fish. Price for the trip is $4450 based on double occupancy. Please add $800 for single occupancy. Price includes all accommodations, all food, all transportation during the trip, helicopter transport of luggage to the cabin, fishing guides, equipment, and licenses, beer and wine pairings. Does not include airfare, travel insurance, additional alcoholic drinks purchased at bars or restaurants, or gratuities. Good Eats and Meets members save $300 when booking before January 31!

A stop at the boucherie/charcuterie will show us the traditional craft of making delicious sauccison sec (cured and dried sausages), jambon cru (similar to prosciutto), as well as a plethora of pâtés, terrines, and other meat delicacies. French bakers have been refining their craft over the centuries and we will watch as they explain their special flour mixes, long fermentation, and age-old techniques of mixing, shaping, and baking and how they bake bread in a modern world.

Wine is an important part of everyday life and we will travel up the lake to the beautiful terraced vineyards of the Lavaux region in Switzerland.

The Chasselas grape produces a crisp, dry, easy drinking mineraly white wine. We will walk along the hiking paths through the terraces overlooking Lake Geneva as we sample these hard to find wines. The Alps are fantastic place to hike, with beautiful views, the ringing of cow bells as they graze the lush pastures, and perhaps even a chance to see a chamois or Ibex.
