Truffles are not only found in Italy and France. The soil of northern Vaud, the leading truffle region in Switzerland, is also suitable for this treasure with such a delicate aroma. Discovering this precious mushroom with enthusiastic and captivating guides, this is the experience offered to the curious and the amateurs alike.

In the Bonvillars region, 2 guides, with the participation of the Association Suisse Romande de la Truffe, offer unforgettable walks to discover the Swiss truffle.
