Detailed program

During our trip to a forest nearby we will collect tasty wild forest herbs and berries, grown under the bright nordic summer light. We will show you how to use herbs, berries and other pure natural ingredients and how they are good for our health and wellbeing. After our forest walk we will prepare together our forest gourmet meal in Saija´s wooden summer kitchen (kota) near to the lake. The ingredients are the collected material and fish from the lakes nearby. And then of course, enjoy our forest gourmet meal in excellent company!
