Siena Truffle Hunting Experience

StartingThe meeting with the truffle hunter

The beginning of the truffle hunting experience begins by wearing the rubber boots that we will give you, and after a brief introduction by your truffle hunter and the presentation of his entrusted dog you can begin the hunt.

The HuntIn Siena Woods

The dog, is the fundamental figure during the truffle hunting, in fact, following the instructions of the trifolaio you will have to accompany your dog near the plants that can hide the truffles between the roots.

The DiscoveryTruffles

Sniffing the ground around the plants, the dog will soon show you the exact spot where the truffle is hiding. At that point it’s up to you to dig with your hands or with some small tools to find the truffle. A lot of attention must be paid during the excavation and also during the extraction, in fact the truffles are very fragile and must be handled with care to keep them intact.

The endThe return

After finding several truffles, after about two hours you will come back, in order to continue your tours in Tuscany.
