Mushroom, berry and wild herb picking

Please note: This is a guarantee departure program

Mushroom and berry picking. The very Finnish thing to do. It probably is not exaggerating to say that almost every Finn has has picked berries or mushrooms at some point of their life. Usually the first encounter with picking comes when parents or grand parents take children to pick blueberries from the forest. After the trek freshly Baked blueberry pie makes the day! 

Our foraging treks lead to local forest that are full of delicious berries and mushrooms. Our guide will explain what is safe to pick and what exactly should you look for depending on the season. After picking everyone deserves a small snack at the fire place.
