Day 01| ABSOLUT HOME
Old town wander ⋅ Vodka-themed dinner
Our journey of new friends and Nordic influences begins in the charming fishing village of Åhus. As the boats make their way out towards Hanö Bay we walk the harbor and explore the old town, where cobblestoned streets meet sandy beaches flanked with colorful wooden houses.
This fascinating corner of southern Sweden is home to Absolut Vodka. As the sun sets, we head to Absolut Home for cocktails and a vodka-paired dinner featuring local producers. We toast the start of our adventure with a heartfelt skål!
Day 02| FORAGING WITH FRIENDS
Deep nature ⋅ Wetlands kayaking ⋅ Vodka masterclass
After a hearty Swedish breakfast, we head into the forest and an area known for beech and apple orchards for a foraging walk and an unforgettable wilderness lunch cooked over an open fire. Continuing in the deep nature theme, we make our way to Kristianstad Vattensrike wetlands, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where kayaks await for a fun and friendly paddle on the stunning waterways.
Returning to Åhus, we meet some of the world’s most experienced vodka makers who lead the Absolut team, many of whom have been practicing their craft for over 25 years. This evening we choose our own adventure for dinner. Options range from casual beer hall to fine dining overlooking the water – your Tastemaker guides the way.
Day 03| MOUTHWATERING MALMÖ
Malmö discovery tour ⋅ Farewell dinner ⋅ Cocktail bar crawl
This morning we head out for a walk that takes us from deep green forest to the rolling waves of a dramatic stretch of coastline along the Baltic Sea, past traditional eel houses. Afterwards, we head west to hip Malmö. While exploring the historic city, we stop in at the legendary Malmö Saluhall food market to taste the wares of local artisans.
After some downtime to enjoy the city your own way, we come together for a fabulous final dinner in one of our favorite eateries. Then it’s time to explore the city’s nightlife, bar-hopping to beloved spots like Grand Malmö, famous for its unusual cocktails using classic Nordic ingredients, served with a side of cool musical vibes.
