Grilling hut

Grilling hut

Opposite the sheds at the rapids field stands a low timber hut, which is of ancient model. Over the centuries it has been used to cook local traditional dishes like skewered whitefish or whitefish soup that have been available for both the fishermen and other villagers and visitors. In the middle of the building there is a big open fire grill made of stone. Smoke finds its way out through a flue in the middle.


Back in time the fishermen spent their resting hours in the hut during the shift dipnetting season, sleeping on the wide benches lining the walls of the hut.


The grilling hut is one of the central buildings in the area and is actively used by the community.
