Fäviken Magasinet

For the ultimate in locavore, freshly foraged Nordic food, head north to the wilderness region of Jämtland. Although it’s in the middle of nowhere—roughly seven hours north from Stockholm, in the most sparsely populated part of mainland Sweden—chef Magnus Nilsson has created a restaurant that is regularly listed among the best in the world. There are only 16 seats, and guests overnight in cabins on the 20,000-acre estate. Despite its location and the fact that dinner (food only) costs around $350, which must be paid in full at the time of reservation, it’s still a challenge to book a table as the experience is so remarkable.
