Karst wine road

Škocjan caves

Join us on a wonderful cycling tour in the heart of Karst, a stony landscape in the southwest of Slovenia, sculpted by numerous vineyards and it’s branched underground world. In the land of open and curious people who, for centuries, have been cultivating this Karst world with their personal hardiness, and cultivating excellent autochthonous wines whilst, at the same, time ensuring that this world remains natural and intact.

Highlights

  • Wonderfull Karst landscape with vineyards
  • Visit the Pepas garden – a typical Karst woman
  • Wine tasting- autochtonous wine, Teran, orange wines
  • Skocjan Caves- second largest cave treasure in Slovenia

Description

The wine road passes the sprawling, limestone Karst plateau, which is covered in Tera Rossa, and the crucial part of this story the wine cellars, which charm everyone.

The cycling takes place along an asphalt road through the picturesque Karst villages, beautiful vineyards surrounded by stone fences, which protect the settlement and the fields from the powerful Karst bora wind, then onwards through the rare Karst forest.

The cycling is not too long, so you can easily interact with nature, paintings and intermittent stops between places, and in total peace you can cheer with friendly hosts and enjoy the crazed air and the temperatures of Karst land.

At the end of the cycling we will have lunch, take a look at a typical Karst house and hear the story of Pepa (a typical female from Karst).

And finally visit the best local winemakers who will show us their wine cellars and give their best wines to the experiment.

For the end of the excursion, we will take you to the Škocjan Caves where we will see one of the most beautiful Karst and European caves.
