truffle foraging

Staying in Buzet a few days to experience cuisine and forage truffles. Anyone have recommendations for day trips to do this? Thanks

When are you travelling? The truffle season is September and October.

One thing to be aware of - in the Balkans, esp Croatia and Bosnia-Herzogovenia, wandering in the woods can be a problem. There are still mines from the war. Be cautious in planning such excursions. I'd get a local guide who is VERY familiar with locations that are and are not safe.

I believe you should find a guide and understand that truffle hunting is highly regulated in Croatia. We heard a lot from a local in Motovun about truffles.

Looking for similar info. We'll be there the first week in October and would like to find a guide to take us hunting for truffles. If anyone has experience with a specific guide or tour company or location, we'd love to hear it. Thanks!

Thank you folks. Wouldn't dream of going out by myself. Found a Buzet tour and travel company with several solutions to make my truffle dreams come true! Maybe others can use the info: www.istrianatravel.hr
