Discover Nordic foods

New ! Our enthusiastic mycology guide will help you to discover Nordic foods and lead you to discover our natural surroundings in a new light. A naturalist guide will accompany the hikers as they familiarise themselves with the ecosystems that surround Le Baluchon and learn to identify various North American Nordic foods.

Their excursion punctuated by various stories and anecdotes, the hikers will come to attain a new perspective on our natural surroundings and the richness of  the wild plants that is ours to enjoy.

« By integrating the way Euro-Canadians and First Nations people look at the land, we will move towards a new perception of natural habitats, paying particular attention to the various woodland flavours available to us. Close to the Rivière du Loup, formerly known as Mahigansipi, a large number of ingredients and aromatic plants have been forgotten by our contemporaries. Come and (re)discover them with us! » - Your mycology guides
