ABOUT
NIKOLA TARANDEK

I was born in 1981. Since I was 12 years old, I have been searching for truffles in Motovun forest in my spare time. I studied civil engineering and worked few years fulfilling my duties. Until one day, 5 years ago, I decided to give up on this stressful and time consuming work to become a truffle hunter.

Why? Simply to enjoy life and nature, and to bring passion and luck with my 4 legged friends.

You can find more information in this Lonely Planet video and I’m looking forward to seeing you soon in our authentic and unique Truffle Hunting Experience.
