Truffle hunting

Do you know that Abruzzo is  the land of truffles? Do you want to learn secrets of truffle hunting and take home a few fragrant tubers?

You will go on a truffle hunt with a local forager and his adorable truffle-sniffing dogs in a forested area near Tocco da Casauria or Capestrano. We will watch the dogs digging for fragrant tubers and learn secrets of the trade. You will take home the truffles we find during the hunt.

At the end of the truffle hunt you will have a delicious snack of local cheeses, jams and honey or truffle lunch (see the pricing below).

Truffle hunting can be organised for most of the year as there are different types of tubers growing in Abruzzo: in summer – burgundy truffles, in autumn – black truffles, in winter – black and white truffles (please note, white truffles are not included in the price but available for sale).

Please wear suitable clothes and comfortable shoes.

Duration: 1 1/2 – 3 hours
