Early morning we start by picking you up from Zagreb city centre. We have a bit less than 3 hours transfer, so you can rest and enjoy the views changing while your driver/guide is taking care of your safe drive and explaining the details about Croatia and trip that you want to know.

Around 11 AM, we arrive to our truffle tasting and hunting destination. We are welcomed with strong alcoholic drink typical for Croatia and locally homemade: biska (mistletoe rakija!), medica (honey liqueur), visnjevaca (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!
