Truffles not only grow in Italy and France. The soil in the "Nord vaudois", the main Swiss truffle area, is also suitable for this treasure of such delicate aroma. Heading out to discover this precious mushroom accompanied by keen and interesting guides is an experience offered to interested individuals and amateur truffle hunters.

In the area of Bonvillars, two accompanying guides in conjunction with the Truffle Association of Western Switzerland, offer unforgettable foraging walks to discover Swiss truffles. The programme includes explanatory animation and truffle dog demonstrations along the path. The stroll ends in a relaxed atmosphere taking refreshments based on a truffle tasting accompanied by regional wines.

2022 dates :
• Saturday 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd October
• Saturday 5th, 12th and 19th November

The walks are in French and English only.

Other dates on request for groups for eight persons and more during the truffle season from September to January.
