We will take you by car to good berry-picking grounds in the forest. You will learn to distinguish between the berries, where to find them and show you how to pick them. Once you have filled your buckets, we will go back to the kitchen, and you will have the chance to prepare jam, juice or perhaps muffins or pies out of your newly foraged fruit of the forest. Jam and juice will be put in jars/bottles, and you get to bring it back home with you.

Every year by the end of summer, the boreal forests give us berries in abundance. As soon as we get a bit deeper into the forest or even just close to the highway we can find blueberries and lingonberries everywhere. Since ancient times the locals have gone to the forest armed by a bucket to collect berries and assure the jam supply for the rest of the year. It is common people bake cakes and muffins using the collected berries by this period of the year. The constant sun of the Nordic summer –which never sets during the night- will make these berries the sweetest you’ve ever tried before. We invite you to immerse yourself in the simplicity of collecting berries freely in the forest to make later your own jam, juice or muffin!
