Finnish forests are full of tasteful and super healthy berries that are in the core of Finnish food culture. With the “every man’s right” berry picking is easy because you don’t need any permissions from land owners. Because of this, there are very few people in Finland that have not been berry picking in their life time. Every Finn remembers the when they went berry picking with their grandparents and made a delicious blueberry pie afterwards.
We welcome you to this guided berry picking trek to Finnish forest. The berries that we pick are wild grown in the forest. Your guide will tell you about the vitamin rich berries and traditional Finnish ways to use them. You can also take berries with you after the trek is completed. At the end of the berry picking we will make an open fire pancakes and enjoy coffee and tea.
