Mushrooms can be found growing in many of the wild places of Europe – both the edible and not-so-edible varieties – and the proximity with and understanding of nature is one of the most appealing factors about hunting them. The dense, unspoiled forests of Sweden are an excellent place to begin. In Vastmanland, for example, there's a centuries-old tradition of mushrooming and an equally well-honed list of gorgeous recipes to match.

One way of foraging for them is with Nature Travels, who run a residential course out of a restored manor house. The guided mushrooming course will set you on the right track to locating, identifying, gathering and even cooking the edible species in the manor house kitchens, under the guidance of a local chef. The rest of your time can be spent elk-watching, wolf tracking, canoeing or simply enjoying the scenery at your own pace.  Other companies offer similar services.
