Not that kind of magical mushroom experience, but a fun, beautiful excursion to the backwoods of Finland. This is a must for any nature lover who wants to get out of the city for a day. Jeff was a hospitable and knowledgable guide who took us on our journey through Liesjarvi National Park. He taught us about different kinds of mushrooms, and how to identify the edible ones. On top of that, we harvested a variety of berries that were plentiful.
We hiked through the mossy forest until we reached our camp along the lake where we cooked our forage of chantrelles and porcinis over an open fire in a wooden teepee, as Jeff prepared lunch of salmon soup, rye bread, and blueberry juice.
Such a lovely day and special memory of Finland!
Thank you Taiga Times!
