Full description
Take a unique small-group tour (max. 7 participants) in search of truffles with your family and friends. Depart from the meeting point in central Turin and head towards the countryside of Piedmont. After a 45-minute drive, arrive in the town of Alba, located on the hills where the precious truffles grow. Follow the truffle hunter and his companion dog into the woods where you'll learn about the trees, soil composition, and other environmental factors required to grow truffles. The season of white truffles starts in September and ends in January. In the late springtime and summer, it is possible to find black truffles. Regardless of the type of truffles found, the experience doesn’t change. Watch the dog in action and learn everything about the truffles of Alba. 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 and need to be requested at the time of booking.
