Mushroom Hunting

7 h
Hunt your own mushrooms in a national park and enjoy a Finnish-style lunch over a campfire!
Finland is one of the world’s best places for foraging wild foods. From the end of summer until late autumn, Liesjärvi National Park is a forager's paradise. Our guide will take you to the best mushroom hunting spots in the national park. Hunting for mushrooms is a peaceful and unique pastime. 

• Fresh flavourful mushrooms handpicked by you
• Learn about wild edible foods picked from the forest
• Look and taste foraged food
• Finnish-style lunch and coffee by the campfire

However, as the name suggests, it is a hunt! We cannot always find what we are looking for, and although most of the mushrooms are harmless, there are many poisonous ones too. But not to worry, for your guide will accurately advise and direct you to edible mushrooms and will always be available to explain about the ones you have found. 

Our group will be on the lookout for trumpet chanterelles, golden chanterelles, and penny buns, three prized fungi of the forest. If we can collect enough for a meal, we will be able to cook them over the campfire for lunch. Fortunately for us, if there are no edible mushrooms to be found, we will still have plenty to scavenge and talk about!

Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a bubbly, edgy and intriguing city by the sea. Helsinki is such a green city with verdant parks, forests (yes), the beautiful coastline and countless islands both big and tiny. Nature is always very close by here. It’s almost like you are wrapped in a green and soothing hug.
