Do you know that Abruzzo is the land of truffles? Do you want to learn secrets of truffle hunting in Abruzzo and feast on the fragrant tubers at a local family’s home?
You will go on a truffle hunt with a local forager and his adorable truffle-sniffing dogs in a forested area near Capestrano or Pacentro. We will watch the dogs digging for fragrant tubers and learn secrets of the trade.
At the end of the truffle hunt you will have a delicious meal with fresh truffles, local cured meats, cheeses etc.
Truffle hunting in Abruzzo can be organised for most of the year as there are different types of tubers growing: 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.
