Fika is an everyday tradition in Sweden. It’s more than just a coffee break, it is about slowing down — a social phenomenon and a reason to set aside quality time. The Arctic lifestyle is also about that quality time, enjoying the moment and embracing slow travel. Swedish fika usually consists of coffee paired with a sweet pastry. The wonderful Brännvalls café in central Överkalix offers homemade baked goods and lighter lunching options. Visit Brännvalls for the tastiest fika around and a moment of contemplation in cosy surroundings.
