Truffle hunting in Istria
Istria is a beautiful region in Croatia, equally abundant in untouched natural beauties and cultural heritage, certainly one of the fascinating Mediterranean areas. Istria is proof that nature presents us with premium fruits if we safeguard the treasures entrusted to us for use.
You can discover for yourself how the search for truffles is fun, but at the same time demanding work, and why truffles reach such a high price.
Guided truffle search is organized in the Motovun forest and led by experienced truffle hunters with specially trained hunting dogs. Motovun forest is the most significant rounded habitat of three black truffle varieties (Tuber Aestivum, Tuber Brumale and Tuber Uncinatum) and the famous Istrian white truffle (Tuber Magnatum Pico).
You will learn the basics of truffle hunting, and the truffle hunters sometimes reveal some of the secret locations abundant with truffles. The happy truffle finders can keep all their truffles or enjoy their intensive fresh aroma in a frittata dish or a pasta-prepared by Zigante restaurant.
