US$67.28
Date

Overview
Discover the Slovenian coast and the Karst region. The first stop is the UNESCO listed Skocjan Caves, one of the largest and most fascinating Karstic sites in Europe with the Reka River running 200m below the surface. Next stop in one of the local taverns with the famous Karst air-dried prosciutto tasting, accompanied with the local wine Teran – produced only in the Karst region. Short stop at Lipica, the homeland of the white Lipizzaner. Pass the coastal towns of Koper, Izola and Portoroz to reach everyone’s favourite spot on the Slovenian coast – Piran, where you can get lost in its medieval narrow streets and houses and enjoy some free time.

One last stop at Predjama Castle on the way to Ljubljana. Discover the secrets of the largest cave castle (Guinnes World Records!), located on a 123-meter high cliff, and learn about the local Robin Hood, the legendary knight Erazem.

Return to Ljubljana in early evening hours.

We walked through the caves, saw Lipica horses, tasted Tiran and prušt, explored Piran and visited the castle. Great day trip from Ljubljana! I very much enjoyed talking with my guide about Slovenian history, geography, politics and culture through our travels! Thank you!

I expect the tour company would allow this if they have spare spaces, although if the trip is fully booked there may not be room for the luggage. I found the company very helpful, so I would ask them directly.
