TRUFFLE SEARCH IN LANGHE AND ROERO
In the search for truffles with “Andar per Tartufi” you will be accompanied by our seeker and his inseparable dog in search of this treasure hidden in the bush, in our marly and calcareous land.
The research will start with a small general explanation about the vast world of truffles: its different types, the different types of research with the dog or the pig, the training methods and the regulations in force.
Then we will go into the woods (we have several places to look for: some more challenging, suitable for people who like to walk and are equipped appropriately, others easier and comfortable, for children and the elderly so that everyone can enjoy this wonderful adventure!) Where, if we are lucky , we will find a nice prey!
