Welcome to foraging! Finnish forests are full of tasteful and super healthy berries, mushrooms and wild herbs that are in the core of Finnish food culture. With the “every man’s right” 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 for example 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 foraging trek to Finnish forest. We will forage according to the seasons. Seasons are roughly:
1.5-30.7: Wild herbs, best season is in May
The seasons will vary, even within the year so we cannot guarantee that we will find a specific mushroom for example. But we will always find something interesting.
After picking we will sit down around open fire and have a small snack that is included in the price.
- Berry picking baskets for borrow
- Guide service
- Small snack at fireplace
