Autumnal Foraging Adventure

Autumnal Foraging Adventure

Do as the locals do. Go berry picking. Find the best mushrooms. Make jam. Enjoy the 'friluftsliv' way of life.

Join in with your local hosts as they prepare and stock up for winter. Hike, canoe, and cycle your way around the valley as you pick and forage wild food in beautiful autumnal colours.

Learn about the various food producing communities, cultures, and traditions in the region while you join your chef at the lodge to prepare the ingredients.

Canoe down rivers of crystal clear waters, spend time with your friends around a fire, and enjoy outdoor lunches in the region's best lunch spots. If you love the idea of foraging in Sweden, then this is the adventure for you!

Ellen

the local members BEHIND

Autumnal Foraging Adventure

Ellen and Jon have worked together to create this breathtaking adventure in Jamtland, Harjedalen. Ellen, our in-destination local partner, moved to Funasdalen in the west of Harjedalen six years ago and considers it the best move she has ever made! In her own words, Ellen describes her local area as a place full of wonderful people, good food and never-ending adventure. Jon, a native of Funasfjallen, is who will be taking you hiking, biking and paddling whenever he isn’t cooking over the campfire. Jon is a mountain professional, a fantastic chef and one of the few local activity providers who speaks the traditional Jamt folk language Harjedalska.

We are proud to work with local partners and members who share our passion for slow adventure, sustainability and regeneration. With help and recommendations from Ellen and Jon, we have a number of conservation projects in Jamtland Harjedalen that you can support by booking with Slow Adventure.
