Wild Blueberry Picking 

 

tbd

 

Some of the best local wild blueberry picking lies just a short drive from Luzern outside of the little village of Schoried/Alpnach. These berries freeze very well so you may be eating them clear into 2021! Come along for a breath of fresh air and your daily dose of antioxidants.

 

 

What to bring:

  • Containers for your blueberries (plastic buckets or tupperware containers)
  • Appropriate clothing (long pants are not a bad idea given the underbrush but you'll be fine in shorts as well)
  • Good walking shoes (if they are waterproof even better!)
  • A picnic lunch, drinks and whatever else you will need for an enjoyable day in the woodland glades.
  • Sausage or other meat for the grill: We will be making a fire and you can grill up what you bring

 

What you should know:

This is a remote & rustic location. Toilets are only available in Schoried.

 

 

Your Blueberry Spirit Guide: Luke Bragg will be leading this expedition and can be contacted at +41 79 175 7011 or by email at lucasbragg@gmail.com

Please sign up and let Luke know, who is coming and how many people (plus ages of children) by email.
