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 foraging hike in the Doubs Natural Regional Park with our wild plant expert Nina Fischer.

What’s the plan?

Foraging Hike with Edible Wild Plant Expert & Wilderness Cooking 1

Meet Nina at St-Ursanne train station at 09:30 (we will wait for the train to arrive at 09:37). 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. Wild plant lunch followed by a flowery herbal tea.

Return to St-Ursanne at the end of the day for everyone to catch their train and go home, having learned about so many plants.
