Picking Wild Berries

Roam the hills, bogs, and marshes with a local guide to pick a bucket full of berries.

Late July - October

At least 20 different varieties of sweet and succulent edible berries and plants grace our island. Learn about the historical and contemporary uses of this local bounty and forage for marshberries, crowberries, whorts, or bakeapples, while keeping an eye out for rare lichen, caribou herds, or skittish partridges along the way. The cooler winds of Berry Season lend to optimal conditions for a traditional boil-up; salt fish roasted on an open fire, berry tarts, and a cup of strong tea is perhaps the simplest and most satisfying of feasts.
