The truffle hunting experience in Zagreb is a delight! You can find gourmet treasures and appreciate time with nature and the thrill of the hunt. During your vacation in Zagreb, take time to go truffle hunting, and have a fun time exploring the dreamy city. 

What are truffles

They are a type of fungi that grow underground near the roots of certain trees, such as oak and hazelnut trees. They are highly prized in culinary circles for their unique and intense flavour, often described as earthy, musky, and sometimes garlicky. Zagreb is a habitat for some of the highest-quality black truffles. They are difficult to find and are in high demand. The good news is that the woods around Zagreb are ideal spots to hunt for truffles.

Plan a private truffle hunt

Gourmets and food enthusiasts must partake in truffle hunting experiences where they can join truffle hunters and their trained dogs in the search for these precious fungi. Truffle hunting in Zagreb includes exploring some exciting nature sites and hunting and learning about truffles.

A great way to enjoy the adventure is to book a private truffle hunt, which includes searching for buried treasure in the city’s forests and green spaces. What's more: one can enjoy a gourmet tasting of fresh black truffles, truffle cheese, and truffle-infused 'medica,' a special Croatian spirit.

Outdoor nature trail

The unique tours include sightseeing at the most incredible nature sites, where guests can immerse themselves in nature. It is an amazing way to escape from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the surroundings.
