Explore a forest full of delicious surprisesThe Cellar in the Forest takes you on a journey into the kitchen of Mother Nature. A kitchen that is ever-growing and always organic. The forests in Finland supply families with a wide variety of ingredients that are changing with each season. You will walk in a national park with a professional wilderness guide who has studied edible herbs, berries, and mushrooms.
This nature day tour from Helsinki takes us to the famous Nuuksio national park. This national park is known for its spectacular landscapes created during the Ice Age. Valleys and ravines among a forest full of delicious surprises.
• Learn about nature and wild foods with a professional wilderness guide
• Visit a pristine Finnish national park
• Forage for wild foods in peace
• Cook and use your foraged foods in the national park
Every story is unique when it begins in the wildOur story will be directed by the season and what wild foods we can find in its cellar. From spring to autumn, we will be in search of wild herbs such as wood sorrels and nettle or wild berries like blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries, and some of nature’s finest fungi, the golden chanterelle and picturesque porcini.
Our foraged bounty will be enjoyed in the same way a Finn might use them. This can include sprucing up a salad, creating a creamy mushroom sauce, or even making our lingonberry jam!
