During autumn, you can use the berry mounds as a guide and pick your way through the cloudberry marshes. The most important thing about the trip is not where you go, but the pleasure and the experiences you have on the way. Take a cooling plunge in a still mountain lake, enjoy the view from a soft mossy rock, have a picnic on a blueberry picking trip and enjoy the peace, the colours and the fresh air.
