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.

The program includes educational activities and truffle dog demonstrations on foot. The walk ends in a relaxed atmosphere with a truffle-based snack served with local wines.

Dates for 2024 will be announced shortly.

Tours are also available on request for groups of 8 or more during the truffle season, from September to January.
