The trip could have been advertised better. We walked around 2/3Km, so this is not a trip for those interesting in aerobic walking. The clue is in “suitable for all fitness types”. It is also very pricey. To be fair, the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The food (soup, bread, and a pudding) was tasty.

Nice and quiet nature park Liesjarvi. Comfortable trip in mini bus to the start of the hike. Guide/driver/cook Jeff gave us lots of information on trees, mushrooms, berries, the landscape etc. On our way we picked hundreds of wild strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. After about one-and-half hour we reached a picknick place nearby a lake (of course). Jeff served us a delicious mushroom (cantharel)soup, salmonsalad and ryebread, wich he all had carried in his backpack together with a stove, coffee, tea and cake. On the way back we found fresh cantharels. All together a nice experience . Thanks a lot, Jeff and Kiia who made the soup.

Jeff was a wonderful, friendly, and informative guide through the state park. He helped us forage for blueberries and (safe!) mushrooms. Lunch was absolutely delicious!!! Highly recommend if you want to do an easy hike and learn about some of the foraging/camping practices here in Finland. Thanks for a great day, Jeff!
