Explore a forest full of delicious surprises in this tour which takes you on a journey into the kitchen of Mother Nature, a kitchen that is ever-growing and always organic. The forests in Finland supply families with a wide variety of ingredients that change with each season, which you will discover in this walk with a professional wilderness guide.
This nature day tour leaves from Helsinki and takes you to the famous Nuuksio national park. This national park is known for its spectacular landscapes created during the Ice Age, as well as valleys and ravines among a forest full of delicious surprises.
Your tour will be directed by the season and the wild foods that you can find in nature's cellar. From spring to autumn you will be in search of wild herbs such as wood sorrels and nettle, wild berries like blueberries and lingonberries, as well as some of nature’s finest fungi such as the golden chanterelle and picturesque porcini.
Your foraged bounty will be enjoyed in the same way a Finn might use them. This can include sprucing up a salad, creating a creamy mushroom sauce, or even making your own lingonberry jam!
