Truffle hunting near Alba



  • private experience with the hunter and his dog!
  • add-on the truffle food tasting in the wood;
  • upgrade to our 4-hour tour Truffle hunt and Barolo


Truffle hunting can be arranged in the surrounding countryside of Alba, about ten minutes drive from the town centre. Alternatively it could take place in the area of production of Barolo wine or in the Roero hill-district, both within 20 minutes drive from Alba.


The experience is private, with the truffle hunter and the dog and it lasts about 1 hour and a half.


After parking your vehicle, we take you for a walk in the wood with poplar, oak and wild hazelnut trees. No particular physical training or strength is required, however, you may occasionally be walking on slipperymuddy,  uneven or steep paths; therefore, it is highly recommended to wear trekking boots or sporty shoes. A limited number of rubber boots are available, please ask at time of booking.
