Itinerary

Information

This classic tour experience from Helsinki allows you to search for wild mushrooms across the beautiful national forests of Finland. The tour highlights the importance of wild food and nature-based experiences on how people tend to observe the world.

From the summer’s end to late autumn, the national parks of Finland – especially the famous Liesjärvi National Park – serve to be a paradise for foragers. In addition to hunting the golden chanterelle, this guided group tour will also be aimed at searching for trumpet chanterelles and penny buns. These species of fungi are highly prized among the local Finnish people. Moreover, these are great for beginner-level hunting and will enhance your overall interest in mushroom hunting.

As the name of this guided tour implies, you are going to enjoy a mushroom hunting experience. While there are several harmless species of mushrooms, there are also some wild and poisonous ones. However, you should not be worried about it. Our trained and experienced guide will offer advice as well as directions on how to find the most edible mushrooms in the forest.

Once you are fortunate enough to collect an ample amount of mushrooms, you can indulge in a delicious culinary experience as well. You can cook them by the campfire for a scrumptious lunch. Even if you do not have ample mushrooms, we will still have lots to talk about. Your guide will enlighten you about the different species of mushrooms and their importance in the forests.
