What are we going to do

We walk in the nature for few kilometers on a relatively easy terrain.

We taste delicious natural products which are there right now to be found. It depends on the time of summer or autumn, are our products wild herbs, berries or mushrooms. We taste several species and pick at least one so much that you can take the goodies home with you. The products we pick to take home are for example bilberry, lingonberry, porcini, nettle or raspberry leaves or berries.

During the walk you learn to recognize and you get to taste several natural products. You learn about the qualities, use and conservation of different plants or mushrooms.

The price includes:
- Guidance on the route and of the natural products we find
- Loaning of the equipment needed for picking
- Paper bag or other package for you to take home the products you've picked
- The possibility to taste and pick by yourself healthy natural products to eat!

About Marjikko - the Doer

Hey! I am Anna, a guide to Marjikko excursions.

My home region Ouluriver-valley has many diverse and beautiful natural sites: rapids, trails, berry bogs, old forests. Nature’s treasures can be found right here and I think THAT is awesome.

I am currently studying the nature-based services: collecting and processing natural products and working as a bird and nature guide. I am excited to be able to introduce this wonderful area to others as well.

As a guide, I’m still a novice, so everything is new and amazing for me too. Welcome aboard to experience the local wonders: tastes of the natural products and to be enchanted by the beauty of nature.
