Searching for an outdoor experience far away from the beaten tracks? What about a truffle hunting tour in the enchanted woods of the so-called Land od Truffles in the Bologna and Imola hills!


This experience is a true dive into the locals’ habits and obsessions when it comes to exploring the woods underground!

10:00 am: Our expert environmental guide will meet you at one of the hill towns of the mythical Truffle Land and first of all teach you about the different varieties growing up there from season to season. Then, once reached the woods area, a senior local truffle hunter and his dog will show you how to literally spot these precious jewels all around …and you will hopefully come out with a “Found one!” yell in the middle of the uncontaminated silence of the woods 😊.

At the end of the tour (max 3 hours) you will enjoy a lunch with a truffle-based menu* at a local agriturismo.

03:00 pm: (About) End of activities.
