You can try truffle-hunting yourself with the Karlić family in Paladini, 13km (8 miles) between Buzet and Livade. From April through November, the family arranges tours with their 12 trained dogs in the oak woods surrounding their home. Tours take 2 to 3 hrs. and begin with truffle tasting. Note that black truffles can be harvested for most of the year, but white truffle season runs exclusively from September through November.
