DAY 1
Arrival into Istria, check into your accommodation in the romantic city of Rovinj. (Arriving during the day, from previous destination).
In Rovinj, we get on bikes to work up an appetite by means of a 15 km drive (each way!) to the imposing Dvigrad castle ruins.
Return to Rovinj for dinner and overnight.

DAY 2
Visit to Pazin, an old hilltop city in central Istria, most known for its 10th century castle (now turned museum) rising above the Pazinčica river canyon and a deep cave. The best view is from above, and you are going to check it out while taking an exciting zipline ride above the abyss. It  is so awe inspiring, it even made it into Jules Verne’s novel Mathias Sandorf.

The second part of the day is reserved for renowned Istrian wine. The first stop is Veralda, where excellent rose (and other varieties) is paired with an amazing homemade lunch. From there we make two more stops: to Cattunar – the famous creator of Quattro Terre Malvasia, which combines the most important local variety with the four different soil types of Istria. And then Matošević – whose owner is commonly regarded as the leader of the Istrian wine renaissance of the mid 90’s.
Return to Rovinj.

DAY 3
Check out around 10am. Transfer to Slovenia, with two options, depending on your preferences:

  1. Visit to famous Lipizzaner farm in Lipica. Spend two hours meeting the horses, walking in the farm park, and learning about its history. And then zooming off to Krizna cave, stopping for lunch on the way. Spending 4 hours in the cave by taking a guided underground boat ride with local experts explaining peculiarities of intricate cave life.
  2. Extended visit to famous Lipizzaner farm in Lipica, that would include a horseback riding experience on top of farm activities mentioned in the option A. Lunch and trip to Krizna cave, for one hour tour of the cave, without the aforementioned underground boat ride.

Proceed to accommodation estate Snežnik, a part of the imposing medieval castle.

DAY 4
Transfer to the NW Slovenian region known as river Soča Valley. This region is dominated by six thousand feet mountain tops rising above the emerald river. Rafting, canyoning, paragliding, hiking, mountain biking – the day can be tailored according to your wishes.

Such an active day needs to be complemented with great food, so we will take you to an insatiable dinner at Slovenia’s top rated Hiša Franko outside Kobarid, near Italian border.

Spend the night on the premises, in one of their romantic rooms.
