One day trip from Helsinki. Porvoo is a smalltown on southern coast and it has a very picturesque old town. really charming, where you can feel the atmosphere of lovely wooden houses of yesterday, now used as apartments, shops, and cafés.
Cloudberries - native to Scandinavia and other arctic regions - popular in Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish deserts. love these - here in canada we have salmon berries which are a close canadian relative of the cloud berries
Lingon berry picking in Finland. I was so lucky to spend a few days in summer in Finland two year ago visiting my sister. We spent a few days berry picking in the forest and staying in a family wooden cottage, near a sauna and a lake.
