The purpose would be to take a journey ecologically and responsibly, respecting nature and creatures. The Journy start from the city center coming by bus to the direction of Vantaa/Sipoonkorpi National Park and walk about 5 minutes from the bus stop to the destination until we reach the forest trails. Then we walk/hike for about an hour or two to discover some wild mushrooms and to find out a small lake in the park, collecting edible mushrooms and learning about super quality mushrooms and those that are toxic, the founded edible mushrooms are possibly grilled and the rest distributed among the guests.

We will have a break at the fire place with the beautiful view of Bisa lake to eat home made organic wild mushroom soup and pie/slice of pizza, also we grill at the fire place, i usually bring brown bread sandwich and sweetcorns, but upon the request of the guests we can BBQ food containing meat for instance sausage.

I am flexible with the schedule in the afternoon, and we are as long as guests enjoy the nature and the park.

Please consider at least two hours of walking from the bus stop to the national park and back to the bus stop.

November is the harvest time for Suppilovahvero/Brown Chanterelle and few other mushrooms that could come up even winter time.

I have also another experience/adventure on Airbnb cooking class "nicolas´s kitchen"

In Finland, it is customary to get acquainted with the forests and nature from childhood and at the same time collect berries and mushrooms. After my first visit in 1993 have become fond of forests and nature. Going to the woods and being in a quiet forest gives energy and calms the mind.

We have a variety of edible, bitter and toxic fungus in Finland. They are identified according to their growth environment, appearance, smell, composition and chemical reaction of the fungus. One must be very careful and skillful in distinguishing between edible and poisonous mushrooms and how to handle toxic and bitter mushrooms. However, there are bad tastes and poisons that can easily be mistaken with good one and could have serious consequences, should be 100% sure about a wild fungus before eating it.

This experience was my favorites art of my trip to Finland. My host was incredible he and I became fast friends and got to laugh and talk as we explored the national park. We found many mushrooms and I learned a great deal. The meal at the end of our journey was amazing!

Awesome trip! As a woodsman/mountaineer I don’t prefer to hire a guide. But for the mushrooms…I decided it was a good idea. Nicolas did an outstanding job. Finding the bus outta Helsinki from platform 3 was easy and Nicolas found me even after the bus passed the stop and i was dropped at the second one. I apparently hit the button to slow. He raced my way on his bike. Then he was patient and knowledgeable with my 50 million questions about the mushrooms. And if i asked a question, that he did not know he was honest about it, instead of making something up. Great conversation and great trip. Make sure to dress appropriately so you can enjoy it.

I was really looking forward to this experience, but was unable to attend because the actual start and end times were different than the ones listed on the site. When I had to cancel, Nicolas became rude and refused to refund me. He said that he had taken time to answer my questions, and therefore wouldn’t give me my money back. I had asked him questions about the pick up location because it is also listed incorrectly on the site. Communication was confusing and I was shocked by the rudeness.

This was such a unique experience. Going in late November was great because there were still plenty of mushrooms to find, and we were lucky enough to go when there was a fresh layer of snow on the ground (the mushrooms don't mind). It was a wonderful way to experience Finland's natural beauty and get out of the city. Nicolas really knows his mushrooms and was very thoughtful during the hike, offering to slow down if necessary. He was also very flexible about the start and end time since we were the only ones signed up: we wanted a little bit of a later start time and wanted to be back in Helsinki by a certain time, both of which we accomplished. Nicolas's eagle eyes spotted many mushrooms under the light snowfall, and we had a great feast around a fire atop a scenic lookout. I give this experience my strongest recommendation!

That was great experience. Nicolas taught us many things about mushroom and forrest. He prepared a lot of special food for lunch and we could eat mushrooms which we picked up just before in the forrest. It was fantastic. I came with my 3 years old kid. Once she was tired, I have to carry her in my arm. The stroller didn’t work on the route. It was hard. I recommend to join this activity without strollers.

We had a brilliant mushroom hunt with Nicolas. Very straightforward meeting instructions, à friendly meditative atmosphere during the hike in one of the most beutiful locations. If you love becoming part of the forest, this is highly recommended. The experience ended with a delicious lunch by the fire curated magically!! Thank you
