Mycotours offers guided foraging with expert guides in beautiful locations across the United States. On these tours, guests learn to identify and use wild mushrooms and plants, all while exploring outdoor locations. These hikes usually range from a walk in town, to a strenuous hike through the mountains, with an emphasis on the ecosystem’s flora. We also offer cook and tastes and lunch on a private chef basis.
Mycotours’ expert guides are known by many as the most extreme mushroom hunters anywhere, and have an obsession with anything fungi. With many years experience between us, we have traversed many different places. From the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, to the Cascades in Washington, or the deciduous forests of the Midwest, we are always in search of choice edible mushrooms. Although mushrooms and fungi are our main interest, we also are knowledgeable about many of the edible or medicinal plants. Many of us are avid fishermen as well. All of us have learned much in the way of mushroom identification; through our many opportunities to work with top mycologists in North America. We share a passion for food with culinary skills to match, as many of us have worked in the food service industry. We also have knowledge of local organic ingredients that we integrate into our dishes. Click on the links below to learn more about each expert guide.
