Mushroom picking, mushroom hunting


Mushroom picking is very popular in Latvia. In a short period from the end of August till the middle of October the woods are full of people hunting and gathering fungi with a knife and basket. For those who love Nature and walking in the woods, this is nice experience to see something different. The excursion will start with a short presentation of edible mushrooms and the general rules of what to do in the woods. After the tour, the guide will clean and cook the mushrooms and explain what kind of dishes can be prepared. Before leaving Latvia your mushrooms will be returned to you in a special frozen food pack. The tour takes 3-4 hours in the pine tree woods near Riga and Jurmala.


Mushroom hunting is the time spent not only for a stomack, but also for a mined and spirit. Better to do it with a guide.

It still gives me very much pleasure to think back to these days in Jurmala and especially to your hospitality and helpfulness. Once more thanks a lot!

Armands proved to know the country very well and fulfilled any wish possible. So I don't hesitate to recommend his tours, especially if you want to bring in your own ideas and wishes.
