About
Finland is one of the best places in the world for foraging wild foods. As spring transitions into summer, the forest flourishes new vegetation and the aroma of fresh berries fills the air. Whether you are here to experience the Finnish culture of berry picking or simply taste these natural and organic berries, you will treasure this intimate experience in Finland's wilderness. Highlights: • Forage and learn about the wild foods of Finland • Experience an off the beaten path national park • Enjoy a fresh Finnish-style lunch cooked over a fire • Take home your extra berries and snack on your bounty On this guided tour from Helsinki, we will explore the serene mossy forests of Liesjärvi National Park. While looking for berries, we may fill our baskets with Finnish superfoods such as blueberries, lingonberries and, with some extra luck, some sweet wild strawberries. These superfoods are rich in vitamins and nutrients and sweeter than any berry you could buy from the stores!

Great day in the outdoors
Jul 2021 • Solo
Had a blast spending the day picking berries in the national park, lunch was delicious, and our guide Jeff was very knowledgeable about the local plants and animals. It was very fun comparing stories of our travels in the wilderness, and this was definitely the highlight of our trip to Finland.
