Mushroom picking

Soon, we will be back to mushroom-picking season! Come with us and look for delicious mushrooms and autumn delicacies in the Latvian forests.

It is easy to find mushrooms in areas that are gently sloped, covered with moss and small plants, and have fallen leaves. You will also learn how to identify mushrooms as edible or not. The hotel restaurant offers dishes that include forest mushrooms. This allows visitors to experience the flavours of Latvia in autumn.
