Trips and excursions

It is strongly recommended to wear suitable footwear for all excursions (comfortable walking shoes, sneakers).

FT 3 – Mushroom picking trip (field mycology)

Field mycology is a traditional mycological area in the Czech Republic and mushroom picking in the country is a very popular hobby. We are offering a whole-day mushroom picking trip. As mushroom growth much depends on weather conditions, we will try to find a promising destination. In any case, be prepared for a probably long travel by bus and some hiking at one or more places. Preferably, we would like to show you pond banks and forests in South Bohemia. Summer time is a time of Boletes. The Nature Reserve at the pond Luční, protected since 1988, is the most famous mushroom reservation in the Czech Republic. More than 400 mushroom species have been reported from the pond bank, including rare Boletes like Rubroboletus legaliae, Imperator rhodopurpureus, Butyriboletus fuscoroseus, and Aureoboletus gentilis. The mushroom samples are thoroughly monitored at the site and usually marked with name indicating labels.

Changing the program and destination depends on weather conditions and mushroom growth at the preferred sites.
