TOUR DAY BY DAY

Day 1 – The great chamber of cave secrets!

Start your tour with some great italian coffee on the main square of historical Trieste. Take the mediteranean road past the remains of a roman theatre and marvelous Miramare Castle which rises just up from the sea reefs. Amaze yourself with cycling through the tunnels of the former railway to the hills, embraced by panoramic views of the sea on the one handside and mountains to the other. Enrich yourself with stories from the Austro-Hungarian and Napoleon eras and finally get to the majestic beauty of the Grotta Gigante, inscribed in The Guiness World of Records as one with the biggest underground chamber in the world.

Day 2 – Real treatment!

Cycle through the picturesque small villages like Dutovlje, Štanjel and Štorje, and stop at the butique wine cellars for the unique experience! Listen to the local people's old stories from their vineyards and share a glass of an exquisite slovenian wine with them. And before treating yourself with the slovenian finest poetry, treat your taste buds with some homemade bread, local prosciutto and other mediteranean flavours.

Day 3 - The Slovenian pride!

Take a walk through the history of Slovenian pride, dating back to 1580 and meet the cradle of Lipizzaners, the glorious and elegant white horses. Indulge in stories of Slovenian soldiers of the First World War in the defence tower encompassing the quarters of the Millitary Museum. And at the end of the day, get completely stunned by the inspiring Škocjan caves, Slovenian and UNESCO world heritage.

Day 4 – The biggest cave castle in the world

Put your fitness to the test and enjoy the landscape changing fast. From the sea to the hills and down to the lowlands. On the way, get amused by anecdotes of the »karst windy friend« called burja that overturns even trucks. Explore the biggest cave castle in the world, built up in the stone walls at the entrance of the Postojna cave. Take the train for the unforgettable journey to the branching undergrounds full of legends

and mysteries.

Day 5 – The Green Capital of Europe, Ljubljana

Pass through the green boulevard of Napoleon to find treasures of Ljubljana, the old Roman Emona. Travel 5200 years to the past and learn how the pile dwellers once built their houses in the Ljubljana Marsh lands. Enriched with precious experience, park your bike in the charming streets of the green capital and enjoy the famous architecture and its lively surroundings!

Day 6 – Wave a Dragon Goodbye
