After we leave the port in Koper, we will head up into the hills above, towards Marezige village. It is just a short 10 km (6 mi) drive away and your guide will keep you entertained introducing you to Slovenia, while you will be able to take in the Mediterranean views of vineyards and olive groves on the way.

One of the best views of the Slovenian Istria and Koper is located right next to the popular “wine fountain”, where you can opt to try local wines from the largest wine cellar in Slovenia – Vina Koper and other renowned local wineries. Marezige is the cradle of “refošk”, the most typical wine from this region which has been around since the Roman times.

Your guide will take you to a local winemaking family, where you will take a walk through the vineyards and see where the magic happens. The winemaker will tell you about their history and introduce you to their wines glass by glass. In order to really experience the Slovenian winemaking hospitality, you will be able to enjoy some lunch there.

After a short drive through the hilly landscape, dotted with vineyards and old villages, we will conclude the tour back in the port, all the merrier and richer in knowledge about Slovenia and Slovenian wine culture.

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.

You have the option of both. We have a time slot reserved for lunch on each tour, always somewhere with (usually local) restaurants handy. That said, you can always pack your own picnic lunch and eat it wherever and whenever you like. This might sometimes even save time in order to fit a bit of extra sightseeing into your day.

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.

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.

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.

Don’t worry. Our day trips are planned with everyone in mind. If you find an entrance fee too expensive, or you are unsure if you are willing to spend so much of your budget on entrance fees, our guides will always have some free alternatives ready for you. From taking a short hike and finding that perfect photo opportunity, to relaxing in a beautiful spot, we have got you covered.

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!
