Taiga – borealis forest
Borealis Forest – Taiga – extends in Eurasia from Fennoscandia to Eastern Siberia and in America from Alaska to Labrador. Thus Scandinavia and Finland are part of Taiga. This coniferous forest is resistant to hard winters. In the Southeastern part of Finland, where we operate, the climate is continental: pleasant gentle summers and winters with quantities of snow. Continental climate enables varied nature with plenty of flora and wildlife.
Under the traditional Finnish legal concept known as everyman’s right people of all nationalities have versatile rights to enjoy Finnish nature. People can for example walk around freely in nature and also collect berries and mushrooms as much as they want.
From midsummer to late fall Finnish clean forests are full of healthy berries. You can freely pick blueberries, lingonberries, cranberries as an example. But you have to be careful because there are also toxic berries among. It is important to be informed which berries are edible and which ones are not.
