Koper & Izola Biking Tour

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.

A highlight of our 3 week European vacation. The team at Koper Izola Biking Tour were fabulous, setting us up with new bikes, our young guide Marko,was intuitive, allowing us space and time to savor the sights and find our own pace, while also giving us plenty of details on the history and nature of Slovenia. Following our ride we were delighted with tastings of local wines, olive oils and a platter of local olives and breads. Thoroughly recommend.

Reviewer: pam
this was a fun tour for my husband and I, we met the boat in a small park, where our ship docked, we went on a boat ride along the sea to the lady of the rock, stopped for a brief visit and met at the bike shop and they sent us on our away along a rode/path along the water back to the park, it was very enjoyable and left us plenty of time to explore the walled city
