From $15 to $90
Come on a 30 – 45 minute guided tour into the forest away from the traffic of the self-guided trail. You will learn some facts about the Ghost Mushroom and have time to let your eyes adjust to the dark so you can see the mushrooms glow in all their glory. Maximum group of 15 people.
The green glow (seen in photo above) can only be picked up by the long exposure of a camera not the naked eye.
This experience is suited to people with an average level of fitness. Warm clothes, closed-toe footwear and a torch are a must. The ground is irregular and uneven, with loose surfaces. As the glow of the Ghost Mushroom can only be seen after dark, visibility is also poor.
Please ensure you are clothed appropriately as no refunds are available after booking, if you arrive under prepared you may be asked to not accompany the walk for safety reasons.
