Mushroom hunting excursions are available from September 15 until November 15 (weather permitting). We will use knives and baskets (provided) so as not to not damage the mushrooms. During your time in the Provence forests you will learn how to distinguish between edible and poisonous mushrooms.
We will hunt for about 10 different varieties, including: cepes, chanterelle, golden chanterelle, hedgehog mushroom, blue stalk mushroom, Tricholoma myomyces, Saffron milk cap, white saddle, elfin saddle, and black trumpet. You'll discover the quiet, unspoiled forests of the area and enjoy the bucolic and relaxed atmosphere of Provence. You will need to be equipped with sturdy, comfortable shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy.
There are two options available, hunting mushrooms in the Luberon or the Alps of Haute Provence.
