Tour Details

Take a bike ride down the Mediterranean coast to explore two notable towns, Koper and Izola. During your biking excursion, you'll see how the towns have evolved since the Middle Ages; these ports now serve as important fishing and tourism centers for the area. Book your biking tour now and take a trip back in time.

Your bike tour starts at the passenger terminal. From there, you'll pass by the famous cultural center, Taverna, which was once a salt warehouse. As you cycle toward the largest brackish wetland in Slovenia - kocjanski Zatok Nature Reserve - you'll be treated to the sight of some colorful flora and notable wildlife. One of the most impressive attractions on this tour is the Rex shipwreck. En route to Izola, you'll get to see the remains of this vessel that was sunk during World War II; it was the biggest Italian passenger ship at the time.

Upon your arrival at Izola, you'll enjoy more attractions, like the historic Parenzana Trail, which was once home to a railway that connected 33 different towns. By the end of this biking expedition, you're bound to be hungry. Don't worry: there is a final stop at a traditional Istrian village for some refreshments, including some delicious wine. Prefer an electric bike? You can rent one for an additional 10 euro.

Forgo the usual walking tours and hop on a bike instead. Ready to ride through history? Make your reservation today.
