Day hike with wild plant foraging & cooking

Looking for something to do on Ascension Day?

Spring hikes are amazing. So many flowers, so much green around us… Nature at its best! If only we knew what all these flowers, leaves, roots… can be used for! If you want to learn about it and spend a day outside hiking, picking plants and cooking with what you find, join us for this day hike in the Doubs Natural Regional Park with our wild plant specialist Nina Fischer.

What’s the plan?

We meet Nina at St-Ursanne train station at 09:00 (we will wait for the train arriving at 09:07). After a short introduction of the day, we will start our hike and forage for wild plants while walking.

Once we’ve gathered enough plants for our lunch, we will find a nice spot to make a fire and cook together on our campfire.

After a yummy natural lunch, we will carry on hiking and continue picking some plants for our afternoon tea after the hike.

Return to St-Ursanne at the end of the day for everyone to catch their train to go home.
