Due to the latitude of 68° north the choice of food products, particularly fruit and vegetables, is limited. Fish is the only food widely available on site.
Wines and spirits are only sold in State shops (Vinmonopol) at prices that seem outrageous compared to other countries. If you want alcohol with your meals you are therefore better off buying from Duty-Free at the airport or in your country. On the other hand, relatively low-alcohol beers are found in all the supermarkets and bars (65 to 70 NOK for a beer in a bar and 25 to 30 NOK in supermarkets). (1 NOK = € 0.13)
