In the afternoon you get to the wine hills in the Vipava Tal. At the evening you can taste the best wine from the host (that’s not included).
Through sleepy villages and beautiful wine hills you get to Lipica. It is the home of the world famous Lipizzaner hourses. For historical fans is the possibility to visit the impressive military gallery in the fortified tower in Lokey.
On the way to Adria it goes downhill today with a beautiful coast panorama till to the border to Italy. You have the possibility to make a tour to Triest with the boat. Today the tour ends in Muggia where you can enjoy a tasty Gelato in the evening.
Along the coast to Izola enjoy your biking tour because you cycle on the new bike route from the former rail road track “Patenzana”, the conection from Triest to Porec.

Departure or extension
After the breakfast the tour ends additional nights are possible.
You cycle mainly on side roads with less traffic. In parts also on main roads and country roads. The tour from Ljubljana to Vrhinka is easy to cycle. Afterwards it is more exhausting, because you have to manage some hilly passages. The last two stages via Lipica and Trieste are easy again.
