Scandinavian countries have a tasty heritage of foraging. In a land where long winters mean commercial farming isn’t very viable, the people have devised ingenious ways to eat well by scrounging around for nature's bounty during the spring and summer when the ice melts and nature erupts in a flurry of green. You will find foraged herbs, greens and mushrooms on dinner tables at home and restaurant menus at some of the best restaurants. You too can try your hand at foraging by going Mushroom Picking when you stay at our Holiday Club resorts in Finland. It is also a great way to explore the beautiful Finnish forests surrounding the resort.

Mushroom Picking in Finland is a popular hobby and even an income for some. It is allowed by Everyman’s Rights, the Finnish law that states nature is to be enjoyed by everyone irrespective of land ownership. Also, Finland is a mushroom picker’s paradise. There are thousands of types of mushroom and few hundred of those are edible. Most of the edible mushrooms are collected from the end of August to October.

Just because they grow wild doesn’t mean they are to be taken for granted. During Mushroom Picking in Finland you will come across highly prized mushrooms such as False Morels, Chanterelles, Funnel Chanterelles Bolettes and Milk Caps all of which are delicious. Plus, when you stay at our resorts in Finland such as Holiday Club Hannunkivi and Holiday Club Ähtäri, you have your own kitchen which means you can toss up a tasty mushroom stir fry or some creamy mushroom pasta for dinner after a day well spent on this edible treasure hunt. Not all mushrooms are inedible and fit for human consumption, so be sure to grab a guidebook with pictures of edible mushrooms or enlist the services of a guide before you set out with your basket.

With Club Mahindra, you can witness many such magnificent experiences across 100+ resorts in India and abroad! To know more about Mushroom Picking at our Holiday Club resorts in Finland, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
