Karst region, well known for its vast underground cave world, is among the Slovenian regions, that kept their traditional spirit very much alive and you can see it in the pristine landscape as well as the traditional old villages with stone architecture.

In the heart of Karst, lies a special European heritage gem, the original Lipica stud farm, where horses have been bred since 1580 for the Hapsburgs royals. The Lipizzaner horses are best known for their incredible performances in Vienna and their grace is admired around the world.

Visit the stud farm estate, which stretches over 300 hectares (750 acres), and spot some of the herds out on the green meadows, surrounded by white wooden fences with alleys of trees and pathways. Visit the oldest part, the old stables, the manor and learn about the history of the place on a guided tour. Meet the horses, the best of breeding stallions in the stables, as well as the mares and foals roaming the grazing grounds. On certain days* you can opt to see the training for the Spanish riding school performance, or take a carriage ride around the estate.

We will head to a traditional Karst village, where you will learn about the production of traditional prosciutto style ham  – Kraški pršut and a special local wine – teranBoth are protected under the EU with the European designation of originYou will be able to try both of these regional specialties along with other traditional cured meats and cheeses on a food tasting at a local farm.

Location

Things to know

Our pickup and drop-off location that we use in Koper is the port area. In case you would like to be picked up / dropped off at a different location, we can accommodate that with a surcharge of 9€/booking.

Your driver will be driving between multiple pickup locations, so we kindly ask you to allow a 20-minute window for your pickup, although we will do our best to be there on time.

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in. If you are visiting caves, please remember that the caves are cold in the summer, as the cave temperature is constant throughout the year.

The best thing about our day trips is that they can be tailored to your own level of fitness. Most of the tours are designed with different activities available, so the choice is entirely yours. Please consult the difficulty section under a specific day trip to see what the difficulty level of the tour and particular activity is.

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note, that the places where we stop off at for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

Don’t worry. Our day trips are planned with everyone in mind.

From taking a short hike and finding that perfect photo opportunity, to relaxing in a beautiful spot, we have got you covered.

There is so much to do in Slovenia, so we wanted to give you the option of choosing exactly how you would like to spend your time here. Which is why we have compiled a list of popular activities in the areas of your visit and categorized them as extras. Therefore, the choice of which and how many you would like to experience is entirely up to you. We set up some of the most popular activities in the areas of your visit and listed them as extras. The choice of how many and which you would like to do is entirely yours. When you arrive to a destination, such as Lake Bled, the itinerary always allows for any additional activities you might want to do, like visiting Bled Castle or taking a traditional boat ride to the island. You can book all of your chosen extras in advance. Your guide will confirm the bookings with you on the tour and make sure you know everything you need to know. It is always exciting when people come away from the same trip enriched by different adventures and can share and compare their experiences along with the tons of photos they have taken.

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!
