Mushroom Foraging in Wales


Mushroom Foraging 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.

Check the Fungi Forays website for available dates

10am-3pm during September and October

After meeting and driving to designated location, then follows a three-hour walk to collect a range of edible species before returning to a lovingly-restored Welsh longhouse for a wild mushroom-based meal with drinks.  Guests get either a special mushroom knife or field guide. Lunch is followed by tasting session and preserving demonstration. Children and dogs are welcome.

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.
