Mushroom hunting


The woods of Valsugana and Lagorai are popular because of the many mushroom species you can find.

Finferli (Chanterelle), Porcini (Boletus), Chiodini (Honey fungus), Funghi dal Sangue (Lactarius Sanguifluus) and many other species can be found during summer and autumn, in the woods and in the meadows.

Mushroom hunting requires that you walk in the mountain: you should never walk alone, always inform your friends and family of the route you will follow, dress adequately (mountain shoes, raincoat and sweater) and never forget to take something to drink.
