Wild Food Master Class in Pyhä-Häkki National Park, group

Wild Food Master Class in Pyhä-Häkki National Park, group

Learn to use wild food! Get on a wild food master class in middle of a Finnish forest, where  pure berries, mushrooms and herbs depending on the season are next to you. Saturday night dinner will be prepared together using the ingredients you found from nature.

Lakomäki wilderness lodge  was built by botanista Alfred Oswald Kihlman in 1885 as the main building surrounded by his 6 500 hectare forest property. His legacy can still be seen in Lakomäki. He planted there f.ex. Abies alba, a fir tree with cones growing upwards. Lakomäki is built of pine logs, which can be felt as cozy athmosphere indoors.

Lakomäki is located next to Pyhä-Häkki National Park. The large forest areas give home to many animals such as rabbits, foxes, bears and elks. In summer time you will wake up to hear birds singing.

Wild Food Master Class will make you familiar with herbs, wild vegetables, musrooms and berries. You will get on a fishing tour on a lake to catch part of the ingredients for the evening dinner. Your hostess Minna will help you with missing ingredients as she conserving wild food all year round. If the weather is good, the Saturday night dinner will be prepared outside in the summer kitchen.

Wildfood seasons:

  • May: young wild herbs and brain mushrooms
  • August: berries (blueberries, cloudberries, wild raspberries) and chanterelles
  • September: mushrooms and berries (cranberries)

Saunas  are the passion of the host couple. There are three different saunas in Lakomäki: a smoke sauna with mild steam, a grandmother's traditional sauna heated with wood and a brand-new electrical sauna. There is a chilling room, where you can sit long in the evening and chill out.

Pyhä-Häkki National Park  is one of the smallest national parks in Finland located very close to Lakomäki.  You will find very old trees, old forests and svamp areas. On your instructed berry-picking and mushroom-picking walks you will also see parts of the national park.
