What you'll do

We will have one day of searching for black truffles (Tuber Uncinatum) in the nearby forests with two special trained dogs and we will make some special food based on the truffles that we found. The place is in a very remote location so the easiest way to get here for the quests is to make a booking in a hotel in the nearby city of Aiud. In the next morning we will be meeting at 8 a clock in the morning. It is a 1.5 hour of driving on dirt mountain road to the place. We offer fetching for the quests with 4x4 car. There we go down on a valley to a very nice hut in the middle of the forest. There will be the starting point for the hunting. Breakfast with local products, because we can do hunting on an empty stomach. The duration of the hunting is about three hours in a very beatyfull, movie like places, with abandoned straw roofs wooden houses and huts, free cows and horses. Then we turn back to the hut make some food to taste the truffles. A lot of fun, a lot of talking about truffles, local stories, good and organic food in the middle of the nature. Then back to the city another 1.5 hour of driving.

More tips

The hunting place is situated 30 km away from the city of Alba Iulia in the middle of the wilderness in the middle of nowhere in an abandoned old village. Keep in mind that is a 1.5 hours drive there and 1.5 back because of the bad roads. We offer transportation from the city with a 4x4 car
