Berry picking

Pick berries and collect the unpretentious flavors and authentic natural vitamins of the summer of Lapland. The berries can be frozen or cooked into juice or delicious jams. Berry picking not only fills up your winter storages but it’s also surprisingly good exercise. Picking berries is part of everyone’s rights.
You can start picking berries from the end of July in the Nuorgam area. Cloudberry is one of the most valuable natural berries in Finland and it ripens in July-August. Blueberries, on the other hand, ripen in August. Lingonberries typically ripen later in August.
