Overview

Join a truffle hunting in the woods with the hunter and his dog, followed by a food tasting which includes a selection of truffle products such as spreads on bruschetta, truffle oil and honey, salami, cheese, breadsticks, wine and other local specialties. This is not a lunch but a generous food tasting which will satisfy your mid-morning or mid-afternoon appetite.
Please note that white truffle season goes from the end of September until January while in the rest of the year only black truffles or other less precious types of truffles might be found.
The tour takes place in a real wood located about 25-minute drive from the city centre of Alba. Trekking boots and appropriate wear is required as well as the capacity to walk on steep, slippery and uneven paths. A limited number of rubber boots are available, please request one at time of booking.

Highlights

  • Led by a local guide
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
