You will enjoy the trip to the forest selected by guide according weather conditions and seasons. On the way You will be introduced to edible and non-edible and poisonous mushrooms. In Latvia we have more than 4000 mushroom species, edible more than one hundred, but in fact we are collecting about 10 species. I will explain how to collect them correctly and what is usually cooked of them. In the forest I will help to check the mushroom basket and the good ones will be packed for future preparation. After tour guests will be delivered back to hotel. The best time for mushroom hunting is end of summer and autumn, but some mushrooms like chanterelles and boletus are ready in June.
