6. Truffle Hunting
The quality and size of Istrian truffles parallel those of Piedmont and Alba, and hunting for this gem is certainly one of the most memorable local experiences. Join a professional truffle hunter and his trained dogs, and roam the mossy hill slopes of Motovun forests in search of this prized delicacy. Then taste an assortment of Istrian flavors - from typical liqueurs like medica or biska, to the truffle-infused charcuterie, cheeses, honey and oil. Toast to your day with Istria's indigenous wines, the white Malvazija and red Teran.
