Mushroom picking

We started out in the middle of a downpour but had the most amazing afternoon searching for mushrooms with Johanna and Riku and ended the walk with some wonderful sunshine filtering through the trees. Johanna and Riki’s passion for mushrooms is apparent and we spent an informative afternoon learning about the different types of mushrooms that we found along the way. Thank you both for a most enjoyable afternoon

Mushroom picking

What a beautiful afternoon to spend in the forest! Fresh air and good company, really nice event even though my basket was still empty when returning to car.

Mushroom picking

Lovely mushroom trip with Johanna and Riku. We learned a lot and found a variety of mushrooms, mainly milk-caps. Very knowledgeable and friendly hosts, so overall a very enjoyable experience!
