How Alba White Truffle Hunting works?

When you participate in Alba white truffle hunting, you’ll be embarking on an unforgettable journey, from identifying the right season to finding the truffle with the help of a trained truffle dog. White truffle season in Alba typically falls between late September to January, with the peak season being October and November. An experienced truffle hunter, known as a “trifolau,” will guide you through this process, armed with a special tool called a “vanga” to carefully unearth the truffle.

Post-hunt, the white truffles found in Alba are meticulously cleaned and prepared either for sale or consumption. Given their highly perishable nature, these truffles are best consumed fresh, ideally within a week of their discovery. Participating in a simulated truffle hunt with Alba Truffle Hunting Experience provides a fascinating, hands-on learning opportunity, where you’ll gain deep insights into the unique ecosystem and the intriguing world of truffles.
