Self Guided Truffle Hunt Istria

Self-guided Truffle hunt Istria

Start early morning from Zagreb. You have a bit less than 3 hours drive, so plan your trip accordingly. Around 11 AM you arrive to truffle tasting and hunting destination. You will be welcomed with strong alcoholic drink – typical for Croatia – and locally homemade: biska (mistletoe rakija!), medica (honey liqueur), višnja (sour cherry liqueur). The certified expert truffle hunter will explain you everything about truffles, their history, how they are traditionally in Istria, how do you search for truffles and you will meet the dogs that are trained for searching truffles. After the explanation you will try all kind of specialities made of truffles: 3 kinds of Istria truffle cheese, truffle sausages, truffle spread, truffle honey, truffle oil and you will be able to observe – and if you wold like – to be part of making big egg omelette full of fresh truffles “fritaja”. With this, you can taste locally made wine Teran and Malvazija. After tasting all this – there is of course chance for shopping! Then follow dog specially trained for truffle hunt to the nearby forest – good luck in searching! After exploring truffle-hunting techniques, it is time to move on to next small city in Istria – Hum – famous as “the smallest city in the world”! On your way you can visit also the Glagolitic alley, telling you a bit more about Croatian history. After a short walk to, and through Hum, go to local restaurant for late lunch / dinner and try some more Istrian culinary specialities, before heading back to Zagreb!
