In private cars from Rauðhólar.
Many fungi are delicious but it is vital to distinguish the good ones from the bad and the poisonous ones! The guide will teach participants to recognise edible mushrooms and how to process them and cook, during this interesting hike in Heiðmörk.
Rendez-vous at 11 am in private cars at Rauðhólar from where we drive to into Heiðmörk. The hike takes about 2 hours.
The tour is a collaboration between the Icelandic Touring Association and the University of Iceland and combines the experience and knowledge of the tour guides with the knowledge of academics at the University of Iceland. The aim is to create interest in science and outdoor activities with this welcome alternative.
Participation is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
