Autumn in Val di Sole is season with a thousand colors and facets, which allows you to gratify all your senses: the chromatic nuances of the woods, the scent of mushrooms, the rustle of leaves, apples just gathered. And yet the many fascinating events, with tastings, music and farmers markets, during the traditional return of beasts from summer pasture in the mountains.
Mushrooms are present in abundance in the woods and in many localdishes.
To mushrooming you have to pay a fee, as follows:
Euro 10,00 for 1 day
Euro 18,00 for 3 days
Euro 24,00 for 1 week
Euro 40,00 for 2 weeks
Euro 60,00 for 1 month
The fee mushrooming can be paid at the tourist offices in the valley.
Wear clothes suitable to the environment by attending: covers well the lower limbs and keep at hand a waterproof light. Carry with you a hard and holed basket to put picked mushrooms in. Avoid waterproof basket. Keep a knife, used to clean, not to pisck or cut mushrooms on the ground.
Pick whole mushrooms, without pulling them up or cutting at the base of the stalk. Act gently to leave as much as possible intact all the morphological characters of the mushroom, needed to determine its species.
The mushrooms poisonous and those that are not picked up must be respected, not to be trampled or destroyed. They can serve to experts for study or at least continue to play their role as biological balance of the forest.
