ENTERTAINMENT IN KOPER’S SURROUNDINGS

Are you ready for a guided biking tour in the surroundings of the biggest coastal city with a touch of Slovenian Istria countryside? Where does your heart want to go today? Would you love to visit the Škocjan Inlet Nature Reserve, a haven for all kind of birds, or would you prefer to follow the path of a former railroad to Izola, which used to be an Island?

If you book a biking tour you get a free of charge interpretive tour of all the sights and attractions in Koper as well.

During our interpretive guided tour, you will be presented with the main attractions of the former capital of Venetian Istria, its typical Venetian gothic architecture and the city tales and stories.

FLORA AND FAUNA OF THE ŠKOCJANSKI ZATOK

We will take a walk along the edge of a freshwater swamp caught in the midst of an urban area and learn how nature and man can cohabit in harmony.

We will start with a biking tour which will lead us to  the Škocjan Inlet  Nature Reserve and continue with a 2,2 km long walking tour followed by degustation and animation. Afterwards we will bike back to Koper taking another way. Our visit to the Slovenian largest brackish wetland will teach us the immense ecological, botanical and zoological value the Nature Reserve holds.

The Škocjan Inlet offers brackish and freshwater habitats as well as bird habitats, which nest during winter and stop during migration in this inlet in large numbers. You will learn that Škocjan Inlet is one of the most important nesting places for herons, water rails, great reed warblers, Eurasian reed warblers, common terns and black-winged stilts. You will be free to observe them on our walking path. In the wet meadows, the vegetation is balanced by Podolian cattle and Camargue horses grazing. The special infrastructure for the observation will allow us to admire the green heart of Koper, the fauna and flora of the inlet up close. We will take some time to observe and photograph different birds and to regenerate your body and spirit in this natural environment. There, it is also possible to observe the underwater world. Are you ready for this unique experience of nature?

You will be invited for a degustation of local dishes and to partake in an entertaining quiz about the Inlet to repeat the knowledge we gained on the trip.  The whole experience (guided tour, animation and degustation) will last approximately 90 – 120 minutes.
