This is a unique nature trip to the forest at the Happy Fox forest farm or its nearby surroundings, in the exotic, one of a kind Lappish landscapes.
On this tour, you will get to taste berries and pick – depending on the season – either natural berries or forest mushrooms. Maybe we`ll make delicious snack out of them.
We’ll learn about the pure natural goods of Lapland, as well as the health benefits of berries and herbs. Traditional Lappish instructions for preparing or conserving berries and mushrooms are also given.
On this tour, we’ll enjoy a berry pie, coffee and tea.
At the Happy Fox we have only local guides with a real knowledge of the arctic nature, so the nature trip with us is a genuine experience.
