Guided mushroom picking

“I would love to pick edible mushrooms in Finland, but I am not able to identify them”. If this sounds familiar, do not worry, we can help you. We organize tailor-made trips on the spot, in “mushroom habitats”, where you can learn about edible Finnish mushrooms. Our trips are aimed for both beginners and for more advanced clients. You can request for a private training session or join a small group for personnel attention.

We concentrate on common edible mushrooms, especially if you are a beginner. We will remind also about the poisonous mushrooms.
