Walk through the woods in the Langhe

Edmondo, who holds a degree in Natural Sciences, will lead you during the walk.

He will explain to you the ecosystem of the Langhe woods, their origins, fauna and flora; he will also give you more information on truffle-generating plants and on truffles.

This type of experience is suitable for walking enthusiasts and for people who like being in contact with nature. It is a walk which alternates slightly uphill and downhill stretches, crossing small flat areas.

For 1 person or groups over 3 people, ask for a customized experience.


The Expert Carlo: our common project is the result of a casual meeting between a truffle hunter (Carlo) and a naturalist (Edmondo) on the beautiful hills of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In our renewed vision, the “Trifulau” (truffle hunter in Piedmontese language) is an ecologist who respects the woods and the rules of research; on the other hand, the naturalist can make his tangible contribution to the maintenance of biodiversity and natural environments, which are increasingly threatened by human activities.

Our common project is the result of a casual meeting between a truffle hunter (Carlo) and a naturalist (Edmondo) on the beautiful hills of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our talk takes place on a Sunday in the spring of 2015 in one of the rare woods still present in the lower Langa: Carlo was with his two dogs Emi and Buk to check the condition of the woods after the long winter, while Edmondo was there to identify some plants and analyse the soil to recreate a truffle bed.

We immediately discover to share ideas and thoughts on truffle, especially on how to protect and enhance it. In our renewed vision, which we like to define as “truffle era 2.0”, the “Trifulau” (truffle hunter in Piedmontese language) is an ecologist who respects the woods and the rules of research; on the other hand, the naturalist can make his tangible contribution to the maintenance of biodiversity and natural environments, which are increasingly threatened by human activities.

We have been carrying out new projects to understand truffle, its culture and tradition: teaching, recovering old truffle beds and growing new truffle-generating plants.
