What you'll do
After you have arrived in Adventure Apes Lodge you will get a short introduction to the area. You can leave your personal belongings in a safe and then we are ready to go to collect some berries! We will walk to the forest nearby and slowly walk around the best berry spots. I will tell you about the flora and fauna and everyone will have their own bucket to collect some berries. The type of berries varies during the season but most common ones are blueberries and lingonberries. After we have found plenty enough we will return back to the Lodge where we will together cook a delicious berry pie. You will also get to taste different berry juices and homemade jams to get deeper understanding of this super food.
I am a certified wilderness and outdoor sports guide living in the area and taking visitors constantly to different kinds of tours and activities. I love nature and I love sharing my knowledge about it. I prefer guiding small groups of friends and families and this is why I am offering this tour for individuals as well. I am also a big fan of homemade traditional food and I love to use pure local ingredients and take you to the forest to collect Finnish super food: wild berries and cook a delicious pie from them.
Berry pie which we will bake together and tastings of different wild berries.
We will of course make some coffee and tea but you may also taste different tastes of berry juices and jams.
All the special tools for berry picking and baking will be included.
