Truffle Hunting Experience in the Hills of Bologna

One Day Experiences


Savigno area (BO)


3 Hours

Starting Time:

10:00 am


Wednesday to Sunday

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!

  • N. 1 environmental guide + 1 truffle expert hunter for max 3 hours (English)
  • Tasting lunch at a local Agriturismo*, local wine included
  • Personal insurance in case of accidental injuries
  • Everything not mentioned in the inclusions

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.

Please Note:

  • Program: the described program may undergo minor changes in the timings.
  • Pick-ups: If you add the car+driver supplement from a specific town, you will be picked up at your hotel downtown. If out of town, you could be asked to pay a further supplement.
  • Truffle hunt and truffle-based lunch*: The ideal season for truffles here is from October to November: Since it is a real search and the availability of truffles is totally climate- and weather-bound, we cannot give any 100% guarantee of finding products nor to enjoy a totally truffle-based menu.
  • Guide: the guide will be with you until lunch excluded
  • Our drivers are NOT driver-guides, since this kind of professional profile is forbidden by the Italian law.
