Trip Details

Pack your windstopper, we’re going to the blustery Karst. After a drive to Sežana, we’ll hop on our bikes and ride on a remote road, away from the busy city-life and through a beautiful landscape to the Vilenica Cave, that welcomed first tourist as early as the 17th century.

From one natural wonder to another; our next stop will take place in the village of Lokev, which may at first appear to be just another settlement, but soon turns out to be so much more. An early Renaissnce defense tower in the village and a prehistoric fort nearby show this area’s rich history, which we will have a chance to discuss when we stop to try Karst’s most mouth-watering delicacy – prosciutto. With its distinct taste of salty pork meat, dried in this windswept area for many months, it encompasses everything this area is; strong, intense and full of character. The same can be said of Lipizzaner horses, which we will see on our walk through the stud farm of Lipica.

Back  on our bikes and we’ll be cycling over the border to Italy and to a slightly darker side. We will stop in Bazovica, a center of national community of Slovenians in Italy, a historical mark of battling fascism. A plunge into history, a stroll through the battles of World Wars, and moments later we will be pleasantly distracted by an impresive view of Trieste Gulf. Slowly, our adventure will be approaching its end. Another calm ride through the forests, a few more unique Karst phenomena to observe on the way, and we’ll be back where we started, in Sežana.

What to Expect

We try to offer unique trips and tours to all the main tourist sites but not only that. We would like you to feel like guests, not like tourist. So private trips or small friendly groups (up to 8) are just right group size for a relaxed trip where everything is flexible. Trying to host you not just like guides, but like lokal friends. Join us on our rides around Slovenia. Or main tourist atractions or those hidden places that only locals know.
