What you'll do

Truffle hunting is a relaxing adventure in the forest: you'll get to know not just how a truffle hunter dog works, but also the specifics of the areas where the different types of truffles grow. We'll have about 2 hours of nice walk in the forest.
The truffle hunting program is available only during the official seasons (between early June and the end of February), in good weather conditions (not stormy or heavily windy/rainy).
Transfer may be available from/to Zamárdi or Siófok (additional fee).

A szarvasgomba vadászat pihentető terepkaland: az erdei program során a szarvasgombász kutya munkáját és a különböző szarvasgomba fajok jellemző élőhelyét is megismerhetjük. Az erdőben 1-2 órán át, egy kellemes séta keretében zajlik a szarvasgomba vadászat.
A program csak megfelelő időjárás esetén kerül megtartásra, gyűjtési időszakban (június elejétől február végéig).
Zamárdiból/Siófokról transzfer kérhető, felár ellenében.

I've been exploring the wild mushrooms of Somogy county's eastern region since 2013 as a certified mushroom expert, and I started to discover the world of truffles in 2016 with my talented four-legged partner, Leeloo. As a side effect/hobby I really enjoy experimenting with wild edible mushrooms in the kitchen too. I'm always happy to share my experience, so join me on a mushroom walk, a truffle hunting walk or a truffle workshop.

Gombaszakellenőrként 2013 óta foglalkozom a Külső-Somogy régió gombavilágával, ezen belül pedig 2016 óta Leeloo kutyám segítségével a szarvasgomba gyűjtéssel is. A vadon termő ehető gombák konyhai felhasználási lehetőségeivel is gyakran kísérletezek. Tapasztalataimat és élményeimet gombaismereti túrák, szarvasgomba vadászatok és workshopok keretében szívesen megosztom az érdeklődőkkel.

Where you'll be

According to hungarian laws a bunch of different licences, certificates, and documents are required for legal truffle hunting; I'm renting all the territories we visit during the programs.

A szarvasgombászat Magyarországon többféle végzettséghez és engedélyhez kötött, így a programok kizárólag olyan erdőterületeken zajlanak, ahol rendelkezem a szükséges gyűjtési engedélyekkel.

It was an absolut special experience! We will never eat truffle the same way again. Now we have a very personal connection and so much more knowledge about truffle! Thank you so much for this! Even the two teenagers were engaged all the time and still talked about everything days later! It was the best decision to book this experience with Tibor, Denise and Leeloo. I can highly recommend this trip! It is really great with kids as well! They get a new insight to nature and food. We will make this experience anytime again!

Tibor was an expert and his dog LILO was so friendly and clever. You could really see the relationship there as Lilo loved the sport of the hunt and Tibor rewards her all the way. Denise spoke excellent English and helped us access Tibor’s knowledge. Special thanks to Denise for helping us connect to this place and all it has to offer. The homemade elderflower drink was a great finish! Can’t wait to try our truffles on pasta tonight!

I cannot recommend this experience more! Tibor (the guide), Denise (his partner - excellent english!) and Leeloo (the pupper) were absolutely wonderful. The tour was excellent, we found many truffles, talked and enjoyed the nice weather while leeloo was doing her thing. It was almost end of the season but it was still a successful day. We even got to try truffle butter :) All in all a really nice family that taught us a lot while we spent the morning in nature. We were their first airbnb guests but they have been doing tours since years so i 10/10 recommend this experience if you are a truffle/dog/nature/relaxing morning lover.
