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.
We have a range of accommodation packages available. (Does not include your mushroom day experience package)
Fungi Forays | Experience Mushroom Safari
Wild mushrooms are some of the most prized and expensive ingredients on Michelin-starred menus yet they are here for free is you know where to look!
And we can show you with two new foray packages this August.
On Wednesdays there are two-hour family-friendly wanders through the woods, followed by a tasting session and preserving demonstration. Lunch is a BYO picnic.
10am-2pm, £20 for adults, £50 for family of four.
Tuesday forays are for food-lovers. The aim is to find as many porcini (and any other delicious species) as possible. We will provide a very simple al fresco lunch of wild mushroom soup, homemade bread and simple buffet of meat, cheese and salad). Guests get either a special mushroom knife or field guide. There will be a short tasting
session and preserving demonstration.
10am-3pm, £40 for adults, £15 for 5-16.
Bookings need 50% deposits for confirmation. To be viable Fungi Forays require minimum numbers so they are subject to cancellation two days beforehand. In the event of very bad weather, deposits will be returned or the date rescheduled.
