Cycling and Truffle Hunting

 Cycling and truffle hunting in Istria

Experience the beautiful Croatian countryside and partake in the local tradition of truffle hunting in Istria 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.

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.

The trip also includes a genuine truffle hunting experience near Motovun. 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. At the end of the trip, you’ll get to enjoy a light lunch with truffle products and other local specialties.
