Let’s take a walk across the woods and stay in close contact with nature while looking for delicious mushrooms. It will be a moment of freedom and excitement. Going to the mountains has never been so "delicious." Just the smell of mushrooms will remind you of some of our delicious local dishes.

Val di Pejo offers a variety of mushrooms. Porcini mushrooms and chanterelles are just few of the species present in the area; now it's up to you to get permission, take the wicker basket and have a walk across woods. Enjoy finding them and obviously tasting them!

Mushroom picking in the Autonomous Province of Trento is regulated by the L.P. (Provincial Law) of 23 May 2007, n. 11 and subsequent amendments implemented on 26 October 2009, n. 23-25. Here, we cite the main articles (the complete text is available from Valley Information Offices).

Art. 1 0 - Picking methods

- Within the Province the picking of wild mushrooms, whether edible or not, is limited to 2 kg per day per person over the age of 10 years.
- The maximum limit does not apply if a single specimen exceeds, on its own, the aforementioned limit.
- Mushroom pickers are required to give the mushrooms a brief clean at the harvesting site and must only transport them in perforated, rigid containers.
- It is forbidden to damage mushrooms on the ground. Do not use rakes, hooks or any other tools that might damage the topsoil.
