ITINERARY

The thrill of going truffle hunting in the uncontaminated forest of the splendid Valsamoggia

Going truffle hunting means loving contact with the uncontaminated forest and its smells; breathe the clean air deeply, and discover the small populations that inhabit it, among autumn-dressed leaves, mushrooms and truffles, and the most intense and sparkling scents and colors in spring and summer, always in the name of green tourism and in the open air.

Savigno  is known as Land of the prized white truffle which grows in the famous 90 days between mid/late September and December, and for the presence of the Starred Chef Alberto Bettini of the historic Trattoria Amerigo</ a>

If you want to fully enjoy truffles at 360°, don’t miss the International White Truffle Festival, Tartofla, which normally takes place on weekends between October and November.

Right in Savigno, in the heart of Valsamoggia we will go truffle hunting, to learn about the thousand facets of the “Truffle World”, the varieties present in nature, touch the passion of the truffle hunter, the deep bond with his faithful companion legs, last but not least, the thrill of seeing this sweet lagotto from Romagna wagging its tail while it digs with excitement because – if we’re lucky – it has found the truffle. WOW!

A real immersion in a hobby that few really cultivate. The climate and seasons change; if on the one hand it is true that for our truffle hunter, doing it is a “head emptyer” it took many years to understand how, where to find truffles, train the dog, and perseverance and passion are the essential ingredients to dedicate to this activity.

If we find it, we will be able to touch it, hold it in our hands even if it is very small and smell its unmistakable scent.

LUNCH WITH A TRUFFLE-BASED MENU?

If you wish to combine a truffle-based lunch with this activity, we will be happy to recommend a series of nearby restaurants / trattorias / taverns where you can enjoy truffle-based dishes, according to seasonality.

Since it is an exclusive experience and in high demand, booking in advance is recommended.
