Good to know
The footbridge to Skeppsholmen is wide enough for wheelchairs, but the last few meters to the table is a path with natural occurrence of roots and rocks. We recommend that guests in wheelchairs have someone assisting them along the way.
The foraging activity is adaptable, so that you follow a walkway and a smaller road in the area to forage for plants and try fishing from a jetty.
There is a privy at Skeppsholmen. A toilet for the disabled can be found at the hotel in the marina, close to Skeppsholmen.
We recommend clothes adapted to the weather, along with comfortable walking shoes.
In case of bad weather
There is a large wooden kåta – tipi – located on Skeppsholmen close to the table, which can be used in case of heavy rain or fire restrictions due to dry weather. The tipi has an indoor fireplace and a cosy atmosphere.
Here we are!
We are Pernilla and Ingemar,
both born and raised in Arjeplog and run A-events.
We will be your guides for your Edible Country experience.
Equipped with knowledge of our local flora, we are happy to spend the day with you to gather all the ingredients you need.
We also know the best places to catch fresh fish that can be put on your plate.
If the fish would not bite, or if you prefer a more convenient approach, we are happy to provide you with a basket of ingredients or even cook the food for you so that you can focus on enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
Welcome to us in Arjeplog!
