Berry Picking in a National Park
Enter into a forest filled with wild berries and serene lakeside views. Come and join us on a full-day berry picking tour with a Finnish-style lunch cooked over a fire.
The forests of Finland are packed with wild foods! As spring transitions into summer, the forest flourishes new vegetation and the aroma of fresh berries fills the air. Whether you are here to experience the Finnish culture of berry picking or simply taste these natural and organic berries, you will treasure this intimate experience in Finland's wilderness.
• Forage and learn about the wild foods of Finland
• Experience an off the beaten path national park
• Enjoy a fresh Finnish-style lunch cooked over a fire
• Take home your extra berries and snack on your bounty
On this guided tour from Helsinki, we will explore the serene mossy forests of Liesjärvi National Park. While looking for berries, we may fill our baskets with Finnish superfoods such as blueberries, lingonberries and, with some extra luck, some sweet wild strawberries. These superfoods are rich in vitamins and nutrients and sweeter than any berry you could buy from the stores!
Pick-up time: 9 A.M.
Drop-off time: 4 P.M.
Let the berry picking begin!
Once we arrive at the national park, we will begin our walk through the
forest to some of our favorite berry picking spots. Our guide will
explain which berries are edible as well as provide information about
the forest and wildlife around you.
Lunch by the lake
Once we pick enough berries, we will make our way to the campfire by the
lakeside. While your guide starts the fire and cooks a traditional
Finnish style lunch and coffee, there will be plenty of time to take
photos, snack on the berries, socialize, and experience the tranquility
of the Taiga forest. The group size never exceeds 8 guests. This ensures
that everyone will receive personal instruction and the opportunity to
have their questions answered by our guide.
A little more exploration before returning home
After lunch we will continue to explore the natural beauty of Liesjärvi
while making our way back to the starting point. The day will be
complete with your stomach full of berries and you will be fully charged
from this wonderful nature experience.
