After meeting the family, and learning all there is about to know about truffles, truffle hunting and truffle delicacies in Croatia and around the world, embark on the adventure of a lifetime: join the family and their specially trained dogs on a hunting spree to find your own truffle - for lunch. In steep Motovun forests, home of that large truffle, open your eyes and ears as dogs roam around sniffing for black or white truffles, and enjoy this unique opportunity to spend time in the beautiful Istrian nature. Irrespective of hunting results, you are up for a rewarding finish: a culinary feast prepared exclusively for our guests, featuring a variety of truffle delicacies such as different types of cheese, truffle honey, pâté, even truffle biscuits, and a hearty, home cooked meal coupled with some wonderful Istrian wines.
Enjoy! And yes – do come prepared: given the occasionally slippery walk terrain in the forest, wear long trousers and comfortable walking shoes! Please note that black truffles are found almost year round but the highly valued white truffle is usually found only in September and October.
Available en route when traveling to or from Istria and can be combined with a wine tasting. Combine our exclusive truffle hunting tour with a tour of magical hilltop towns of Istria. Nighttime truffle hunting also available!
