Berry picking and mushroom hunting in Nuuksio National Park

Forests in Finland are a real treasure if you like foraging berries or mushrooms. Picking berries and mushrooms in tranquil forests is relaxing and fun.

Northern clean nature and  summer with long sunny days and white nights give an incredibly delicious taste to berries and fungi. It is not only the aroma – Finnish wild berries and mushrooms are clean and healthy; they contain huge amounts of important vitamins, flavonoids, fibres, and anti-oxidants. The berry season begins in mid July when blueberries are ripened.
