What’s included

  • Transportation
  • Professional guide
  • Berry picking bag
  • Finnish-style lunch and coffee by the fire

We will explore the tranquil mossy woodlands of Liesjärvi National Park on this guided excursion departing from Helsinki. 

We may fill our baskets with Finnish superfoods such as blueberries, lingonberries, and, with luck, some sweet wild strawberries, while searching for berries. These superfoods are high in vitamins and nutrients, yet they're sweeter than any store-bought fruit! 

Your guide will take you to a lakeside campsite for a Finnish-style lunch cooked over an open fire after you've visited a few of the good picking spots. You will have free time to explore the area, take photos, talk with your guide, or find your own tranquil spot to appreciate the forest while lunch is being served.
