Finland is one of the best places in the world for foraging wild foods, and this authentic nature experience will enable you to escape the city for a day to walk through a national park and pick your own wild berries.
Upon arriving to Liesjärvi national park, a hidden gem of Southern Finland, you will begin your walk through the forest to some of the best berry picking spots. Your guide will explain which berries are edible and will provide information about the forest and wildlife around you. You will also be provided with a paper bag to collect your berries along the way.
Some of the superfoods you will pick on the day include blueberries, lingonberries and, with some extra luck, you may even find some sweet wild strawberries. These wild berries are all rich in vitamins and nutrients and sweeter than any of their store-bought counterparts.
Once you have picked enough berries, you will make your 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.
After lunch you will continue to explore the natural beauty of Liesjärvi while making your way back to the starting point. You will get to the end of the day with a full stomach and feeling fully rejuvenated from this experience in nature.
Whether you are here to experience the Finnish culture of berry picking or simply taste the most natural organic fresh fruits nature can provide, you will treasure this intimate experience in Finland's wilderness, in a small group ensuring you have the opportunity to receive personal instruction from the guide.
