For an authentic truffle hunting experience deep in the Piedmont countryside join this fun, half-day, small group tour.
Depart from central Turin and drive to the Langhe and Roero hills where the white truffle of Alba and the black summer truffles grow.
After a 40-45 minutes drive, meet the truffle hunter and his specialist dog who has been trained to hunt out the truffles. Follow them on a walk in the woods, learning about the local trees, soil composition and other facts about the environment of the Piedmont region and understand how truffles grow.
The truffle hunt can be arranged in the season of the white truffle of Alba (from end of September until January), as well as in summer for the black truffle. Regardless of the type of truffles found, the experience doesn’t change and the aim is to show how truffles can be found by the dog in action.
The walk in the woods requires appropriate footwear as the path can be slippery, uneven and occasionally muddy. A limited number of rubber boots are available, please enquire at time of booking.
