Private Country Home Visit with Berry Picking

Private Country Home Visit with Berry Picking

Make a relaxing day tour to the countryside 80 km from Helsinki and spend a Finnish summer day with us. Get into a Finnish forest for a walk, feel the silence and pick up berries with your local hostess. Visit an old-style sauna and cook together with your host family a simple meal from seasonal ingredients.

Erkkilä  is the country home of the Skafur-Tour owner Riitta and her husband located in Tervakoski, 80km from Helsinki surrounded by large forest areas. From mid-July to mid-August the berry season is at its best. We offer you a chance to spend a Finnish summer day with us. We'll go to the forest to pick up berries. In August we mights also find some chantarelles. If the weather is hot, we can go to the lake for a swim. Otherwise we'll just have sauna and cook some food together out of the fresh vegetables growing in our garden. 

You can arrive to our home by a rental car or by train to Riihimäki railway station, from where you can take a taxi.
