Mushroom Safari Break in Wales
Join a local mushroom expert on a day of fungi foraging. The morning safari starts hunting for wild and free mushrooms with your guide, Daniel Butler.
While roaming the Welsh woodlands (hunting camouflage not required) throughout the morning, learn the various edible friendly or non-edible mushrooms you encounter and the deadly poisonous mushrooms to avoid. A midday interval to recoup and discuss the day’s findings, learn facts and ask questions before a hearty buffet lunch. The afternoon is spent learning the art of preserving and drying mushrooms before a mouth-watering mushroom tasting session to end the day.
*NOTE – We will update this page when we have some new dates available for these unique packages.
