Slovenia is a country famous for its rich wine-making tradition and has been recognised as one of the top wine-growing countries in the world. There are three major wine regions in the country, with Primorska regions being the most developed and consequently the most well-known of all of them. 

We will start our Koper trip with a short drive to the hilly Marezige village, the home of the famous Refoscco wine and the first wine fountain in Slovenia. You will be able to enjoy it with stunning panoramic views of the Slovenian Coast. All the wine lovers can also taste a wide selection of exquisite domestic wines from the largest wine cellar in the entire country. 

On our shore excursion from Koper, we will also visit a local winemaker and experience the Slovenian wine-making history in a truly authentic way. We follow our host on a tour of his vineyards while he will share with us the rich history of this region and some of the secrets of the astounding wines that we will be tasting.

You will also have the opportunity to have lunch at the winery and enjoy organic and locally grown Slovenian delicacies. With fresh knowledge of the region’s rich wine-making history and an expanded taste palate, we will return in good spirits back to Koper.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am traveling alone, how can I book my trip?

The process is the same — Contact us and we will find you a group to go on the trip with. It’s also much easier if you have some flexibility in your travel dates, so let us know. And if you wish, we can also arrange a private shore excursion for you..

Where is the pickup point of the excursions?

The pickup point for our trips is at the Koper Port, but if you want us to pick you up at a different location, we can arrange that for an additional charge of 9€ per booking. Because the drivers will be driving between multiple pick-up locations, there is a possibility of being late up to 20 minutes. We will try to be as on time as possible, but we kindly ask you to be patient.

What clothes should I wear for the trip? Do I have to bring anything extra?

Your clothes should reflect the season and the daily forecasted weather. That’s why you should check the forecast one day before, and take clothes accordingly. For trips closer to the Alps, remember to take an extra layer of clothing, because the temperatures and the weather can change much quicker than elsewhere. In caves, the temperature is constant throughout the year, around 10 degrees celsius at most, so take warmer clothes if you are going there in summer.

Is lunch in a restaurant scheduled as part of the excursion, or do I have to bring my own food?

Yes, mostly we have a time slot free to stop at a nearby local restaurant for lunch. But of course, if you prefer, pack some food with you and you can eat whenever and wherever you want. That might save some time, so you can then do more sightseeing on the excursion.

Are there any restaurants for those with food restrictions?

In general, yes. But it depends on the severity of your restrictions. Vegetarians can find something almost everywhere, but vegans and others can find it difficult, especially in rural areas and smaller towns. It is best to call in advance and check if they are able to accommodate you.

How fit do I need to be?

Most trips are fairly easy and can also be adapted to your level of fitness. For specific answers about certain trips, note their difficulty level and check the trip-specific FAQ.

What do “extras” mean?

There are many different things to do at every destination you’ll visit during our trips. Because not all are possible to do in one go, we decided to give you the option of choosing between them, listing them as extras. For example, on a trip to Lake Bled, you can choose to visit the Bled Castle, go for a traditional “pletna” boat ride to the church island, or just take a scenic walk along the lake. You can choose the activities beforehand, so we contact the local provider and book your spot. Everyone has a chance to enjoy their shore excursion in their own unique way and love it.

I am traveling on a short budget and cannot afford the extras. Is the trip still worth it?

Of course! Even if you find the entrance tickets to certain places too expensive, our guides will make sure you’ll leave our trip fully satisfied. Slovenia is full of options, and a lot of them are hidden to the foreigner. That’s why our guides can always recommend some hidden spots and beautiful viewpoints, or different interesting activities you can do for free. Not only that it’s gonna be cheaper, you’ll also probably have much more space for yourself, without any other tourists.

Can I have some alone time?

Our goal is to accommodate every type of traveler. That’s why there’s always time for you to explore on your own, or just chill at some beautiful spot the guide can recommend to you. There are no limitations if it doesn’t interfere with being on time when we have the guide that wants you to regroup. On our shore excursions, everyone can have their own exciting adventure.

I really wanted to take a trip to the Slovene countryside because I was told the southern part was particularly beautiful. The wine tour sort of corresponded with this. They took us to this super cute village and vineyards, where a family of winemakers lives. I got to taste some very flavoury wines and the company was incredible. You can see how the wine tradition in Slovenia is so special. I recommend this trip. I went alone and had an amazing time!

I was in Koper with a couple of friends and we wanted to see the rural side of Slovenia. This offer was perfect for us: wine and relaxation! And no need to drive:) But it in the end it was so much more. Our guide was fantastic and we learned a great deal about Slovenian culture and why the wine is so special. It was a great day out and we’re taking a few bottles home with us!:)
