Mushrooming and Foraging in the Rhodopes
Are you an outdoor enthusiast? Do you enjoy the adventurous feeling of being out in the wilderness, exploring lush forests and gathering the fruits of nature? Then this is just the right experience for you! Come with us on a quest to the Rhodope mountains and forage for mushrooms and wild berries near Chepelare.
• Field mushroom (Agaricus campestris)
• Porcino/cep (Boletus edulis)
• Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)
• Parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota procera)
• Wild strawberries
Few activities allow us to connect with nature the way foraging does. The tranquility of the environment, the rejuvenating Rhodope air, the way we focus our attention entirely on identifying and carefully gathering edible mushrooms and berries – it allows us to feel a certain closeness to the land.
With the help of an experienced local mushroom forager, forage and fill your basket with the widespread field mushroom, the popular in the culinary arts porcino or cep, the delicious chanterelle, and the widely sought-after parasol mushroom. In the summer, you will also have the opportunity to gather wild strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, and enjoy the rich flavor of these all-natural berries, untouched by human interference.
Whether you’re a culinary enthusiast looking for all-natural ingredients for your next cooking endeavor, nature lover with an affinity for plants and fungi, or simply someone who finds peace in the act of achieving harmony with nature, this is certainly an experience worth trying.
