Berry picking and foraging tours

Arctic superfoods ripened under the Midnight Sun

Several tasty and healthy wild berries ripen during the nightless nights of Lapland – cloudberries, lingonberries, blueberries, crowberries and cranberries. Same goes for the mushrooms since delicacies such as porcini and matsutake can be found from the pure arctic forests. Anyone can freely pick wild berries and forest mushrooms in Lapland and elsewhere in Finland thanks to the Everyman’s Right. But how do you know when to pick what and from where?

Fun, educational and also cultural activity during the summer is to join a foraging tour held by a local nature guide. Berry picking is as Finnish as it gets when you look at summertime pastimes and is an essential part of Finn’s love of nature and way of living of the land. On top of gathering healthy vitamins and flavonoids, on a foraging excursion, you will also learn more of the arctic nature, its flora and fauna, and work on your nature connection. Truly healthy in many ways!

There are many local foraging enthusiasts to take you out to the forest. See the different excursions and nature experts below, and fill up your basket with wild superfoods!
