Stars du Nord is an annual gastronomic festival held in natural wonders of the north. The purpose of the festival is to promote the Nordic food concept on a global scale – and give our leading chefs, winemakers, producers, and regions international visibility.

For the 2022 edition Stars du Nord teamed up with Swedish Lapland, Treehotel and Arctic Bath to embark on a green evolution. For two evenings the unique forest of Lapland will be transformed into a transgressive wildwood restaurant – MATERIA as the northern countries’ most progressive star chefs from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland join forces for a never-before collaboration. The challenge? Creating a 10-star Michelin tasting menu using ingredients sourced within a 200-kilometer radius prepared with our natural elements; fire, water, fermentation, and of course, imagination.
