White Truffle Hunting
There is nothing more ubiquitously Italian than truffle.
It goes hand in hand with the country’s great wine.
Just as Barolo is the King of Wine, the Alba White Truffle reigns supreme over the fungi kingdom. This is the most famous truffle in the world.
It even has its own annual festival each fall that draws an international crowd interested in the gastronomic delicacies of Piedmont.
Spend a few hours
hunting for this grand prize with a local trifulau, a truffle hunter, and his canine sidekick in the fields and woods of the Langhe.
You will be accompanied by the seeker and by the sense of smell of his reliable dog to discover completely new places and scents. The search for the truffle consists in an adventure to discover everything that revolves around the world “truffle”: from myths to legends,
and then again the training of the dog and the little secrets of the “trifulau” - which in dialect means “seeker of truffles”.
This activity has a very precise periodicity that runs from October to December and requires more sporty clothing, since the hunting grounds are
more impervious and the walk is longer.
DURATION: 2h / 2h and 30 min
CLOTHING: we suggest you to wear sneakers or trekking shoes. We can put rubber boots and poles at your disposal to assist you in walking.
