Cycling and Truffle Hunting
Istria bike tour and truffle hunting
Experience the beautiful Istrian countryside and partake in the local tradition of truffle hunting on this exciting cycling tour. The trip is perfect for those looking to explore inland Istria in a fun and active way while also getting a taste of the local way of life.
In the morning on our Istria bike tour, we will meet in Porec at the Terra Magica Adventures office (next to Valamar Diamant Hotel) and have about a 40-minute drive to the starting point for cycling. We’ll have the chance to cycle through the forests surrounding the picturesque town of Motovun and take in views of Istria’s medieval hilltop villages, vineyards, olive groves and meadows dotting the rolling hills and valleys.
After enjoying a lunch filled with truffles, we will embark on a genuine truffle hunting experience. With the help of a local truffle hunter and trained dogs, we will learn about the art of finding truffles and the history of this delicacy.
