Take a bike tour which offers you the possibility to learn about the attractions that decorate the Mediterranean coastal towns of Koper and Izola which in the past were indelibly influenced by the Middle Ages and the Venetians. These two towns were once islands, but today they represent two important ports and tourist and fishing centres.
We will start our bike tour at the passenger terminal and then cycle past Taverna, which at one time was a salt warehouse, but today it represents a popular centre for musical and cultural events. We will then pass the Koper promenade and cycle towards Škocjanski Zatok Nature Reserve, which is the largest brackish wetland in Slovenia, well-known for its rich fauna and flora. Later on, we will take the road along the sea towards Izola where we will be able to take a look at the shipwreck of the Rex which sunk during the Second World War and was the largest passenger ship sailing under the Italian flag.
After arriving in Izola, we will visit the old town centre and cycle towards the Bay of San Simon where a popular beach is situated. We will then take a ride on the Parenzana trail, a former Istrian narrow gauge railway, which at one time connected 33 Istrian towns from Italy (Trieste) to Croatia (Poreč). At the end of our trip, we will visit a traditional Istrian village and refresh ourselves with the local food and wine.
During our bike tour you will be able to enjoy a beautiful view of the sea, with the Alps in the background, and you will have plenty of time to take some wonderful photos.
For an additional payment of 10 euro you can rent an electric bike.
Pickup location: Hotel, cruise terminal or any other location in Koper, Izola, Piran, Portorož, Ljubljana etc.
