In summer and fall, locals rush to their favorite swamps and forests with baskets and buckets to pick vitamin-rich berries. It's a great way to spend time with your friends or family, collect the healthy berries, and put them in the freezer to enjoy during the long winter. On this tour, our guide teaches you about berry picking and finding ingredients from nature.
Follow our guide to the path deep into the woods where Lappish nature's stunning silence and beauty await. The guide's stories will take you on a journey to the past as you hear about the old way of living and learn about the traditional way of using ingredients found from nature. The slow pace allows you to notice little details and take your time with photos.
We will have a break by the campfire where you can relax while your guide prepares traditional Finnish pancakes, topped with freshly picked berries and served with coffee or tea.
Early fall, we take a boat and row across the Olkkajärvi to find untouched nature. Later on, when the water is frozen, we drive to the trekking area by car.
This tour is family-friendly.
