Description

For this hike dedicated to mushroom picking in the Vercors massif, I will find the best for you! On the program: trumpets, chanterelles and a host of other species.

L'll take you to the forest to discover some good spots, and you'll get there blindfolded... I'm kidding 😉.

Then, you will learn how to sort and clean the treasures taken from Mother Nature over a nice glass of wine.
