The truffles hunting in the Langhe, a magical world to discover!

Alba White Truffle: guided hunt

Langhe, besides the wines, are surely famous for truffles, the renowned and celebrated hypogeal mushrooms which are exalted in the recipes of the greatest chefs of the world.

The experience of the “TRUFFLE HUNT“, far from being a “tourist” experience, will lead you to the discovery of the traditions related to truffles and the knowledge of the various types and seasons of “picking”. You will be accompanied by a real “trifolao” along with his faithful dog and you can witness a real discovery of the precious fungus.

The truffle hunt in the Langhe

will be simulated, just to let you observe the real behavior of the “trifolao” and the dog.

PERIOD OF THE YEAR  All year round – Depending on the season you can take part to the hunt of various types of truffles.

Depending on the needs of the trifolao, the group can also be made up of other people. Groups are always small!

5 star rating Wonderful day of wine tasting! A big thank you to Claudia for arranging a wine tour for us. Fabio was our guide, and he picked us up at our bed and breakfast. He took us to two wineries, one in Barolo and one in Barbaresco. Fabio was delightful and we had a great day with him. He took pictures of us throughout the day and sent them by text, which only added to great memories. The wineries were both family run where we met the owners and could feel their love of what they do. We now have a lot of wine to ship home, but that’s a good problem! Claudia arranged a lunch for us in Barolo at a restaurant where the food was local and fresh, and delicious! She also made sure that we would have time to wander through Barolo, which was the perfect town to spend an afternoon in.
Making arrangements through Claudia was very easy, and made for a great vacation. She also arranged a fabulous day for us with a truffle hunter, but that will be in another review. I highly recommend Slowdays for touring in the Piedmont area! - 30/10/2019

5 star rating Week in heaven made possible by Claudia We just came back to Iceland after a wonderful week in Piedmont. The group consisted of 5 couples. I had researched tour organizers in the area and soon I discovered Slowdays! I contacted Claudia in the spring and the dialogue started and Claudia spent a lot of time and effort trying to understand our needs and expectations. I have to say the trip was perfect for everyone in the group. Claudia was spot on in every aspect, (even the bus was great). The hotels were wonderful, small personal boutique hotels with great views of the vineyards. The restaurants fantastic ranging from local restaurants to the best in Piedmont. We highly recommend the truffle hunt and the truffle fair! Highly recommend the cheese whisperer and the visit to the local farmer. We did bike tours on e-bikes and I have to say it was a good choice to select the e-bikes. You can see so much more by covering more distances and the guide Riccardo was excellent. We also did wine tasting :). And I would recommend smaller wineries, the bigger ones tend to be more commercial. We met Claudia and her mother at the truffle hunt a very likeable person and she is really good at understanding the customers needs and mixing together different activities. For us the trip was like a symphony that started slowly and modestly but during its lifespan it grew stronger, faster, bolder and ended in a big climax in the end 🙂 (for us it was the dinner at La Ciau del Tornavento, beautiful house and wine cellar, great food, in our opinion the best restaurant in the trip). Thank you so much Clauda and hopefully we'll see you soon! - 16/10/2019

5 star rating fuori dal mondo sono i luoghi visitati, di una bellezza commovente, lo sono le cose buone che abbiamo degustato, la lezione di integrazione tra uomo e natura in occasione della ricerca del tartufo e delle visite in vigna, sembrano di un altro mondo la gentilezza e la competenza quasi amorevole di tutte le persone con le quali abbiamo avuto un rapporto. In particolare la gentilissima Sig.ra Claudia di Slowdays che ci ha pazientemente aiutato nella progettazione di questo minitour delle Langhe. Affidatele serenamente il vostro tempo perchè saprà renderlo prezioso. Grazie - 16/10/2019
