Truffle hunting in Piedmont consists of a walk in the woods for about two hours, during which you will accompany the dog to sniff near the bushes or plant roots. It will be him to show you where the truffles are.
When the dog finally begins to sniff eagerly and dig in the ground, you can continue digging to extract the truffle from the ground, very carefully and gently.
At the end of the two hours of hunting you can return to the starting point with a nice booty and with a wide knowledge of truffle hunting. Furthermore, your “trifolao” will be happy to advise you on how to eat truffles.
After the first truffle hunting experience in La Morra, you can head to the helicopter departure base a few kilometers from the woods. Here you can get on the helicopter, where an expert pilot will take you hundreds of meters above the ground to see the whole area of Barolo. From there you can see the majestic hills, a UNESCO World Heritage site, expanses of vineyards, fields of hazelnuts and mysterious woods where the prized truffles are hidden.

We spent a whole day at La Morra and practiced all three activities, the most interesting and fun truffle hunting. It was great to look for truffles with Marco, our trifolao and his beautiful dog! After the hunt, we took the helicopter a short distance from the woods. We flew over magnificent territories, with breathtaking views !! Finally during the visit to the winery they explained how Barolo is produced and we tasted it together with exquisite products of Italian and Piedmontese cuisine.
