The hunt usually lasts between 1 to 2 hours depending on the weather and the luck of the hunt! In spring and summer when the dry heat does not allow the dogs to work at their best during the day it is necessary go truffle hunting in the early morning, around 8:30 or to postpone it until the early evening, say 5:30-6:00 pm.
The morning truffle hunt works well with a lunch cooking class to follow, while the afternooon/early evening hunt can be followed by a truffle based dinner at the farm house restaurant.
Naturally both are also available as stand alone activities.
