Mushroom hunting

2 reviews
During this guided tour you might find one of Finland's most delicious and prized edible mushrooms, the chanterelle. This day trip starts from Helsinki and we will take you to Liesjärvi national park. From the end of summer until late autumn, Liesjärvi National Park is a foragers paradise. Our guide will take you to the best mushroom hunting spots in the national park, hunting for mushrooms as a peaceful and unique pastime. <br><br>However, as the name suggests, it is a hunt! We cannot always find what we are looking for, and although most of the mushrooms are harmless, there are many poisonous ones too. But not to worry, for your guide will accurately advise and direct you to edible mushrooms and will always be available to explain about the ones you have found. <br><br>Highlights:<br><br>• Fresh flavourful mushrooms handpicked by you<br>• Learn about wild edible foods from the forest<br>• Look and taste foraged food<br>• Finnish-style lunch and coffee by the campfire

The very heart of central Helsinki and a very evocative park it is. I live nearby and often pass through it on my way to the shops, or just walk down it when the weather is good. Very clean, well manicured, with lots of benches as well as frequent free musical exhibitions on the covered stage at one end.

Simply pretty 😍 Good for picnic, walk, an ice cream, watching birds and people 😀 Normally crowded during the summer time when its not too cold to seat on the ground.

I lived in Hki for the last 18 months and whenever I need to go out and distress Esplanadi park was the choice, with its silent trees, as well as people enjoying meditation or outdoor yoga practice, in there you breath the real Finns way of living.

We were just walking around when stumbled upon it, and since it was on the way to the place we headed on, walked though whole it's lengths. I have to say it was quite pleasant walk, and some interesting things were there apart walk itself. Park is not crowded (we were there on Friday afternoon) but amount of people were substantial, so keep in mind that this will not be super- serene park but rather onebustling with city energy.
