Excursions - Portorož & Piran


Within a few kilometres in any direction you can discover beautiful landscapes and astonishing cultural heritage. The many vantage points are especially attractive. You can enjoy a view of the neighbouring bays in Slovenia, Croatia and Italy, and the Gulf of Trieste framed by the peaks of the Alps.

From the comfortable city of Portorož with its relaxed holiday atmosphere you can go for a stroll along the coast to the unforgettable Piran. You can continue along the coast or choose a picturesque road and in a short while reach Strunjan Nature Park. A few minutes’ drive south of Portorož you enter the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park. Only a minute more and you will find yourself in Istrian villages in the midst of vineyards and hillside olive groves.

If you like sea adventures, we recommend a boat trip along the Slovenian coast with lunch on deck. You can also go on a trip with a fisherman from Piran, who can teach you how to fish.

In Sečovlje Salina you can see how the salt is traditionally harvested. You can extend your trip with a visit to the Fonda fish farm that is situated nearby. Fonda is  no ordinary fish farm, it's a real tourist attraction, where visitors learn many interesting facts about sea life and the culinary arts. You can visit the fish farm by the sea on the SUP!

If you like outdoor activities, we recommend a bicycle trip to the countryside beyond Piran with a help of a free guide “Enjoy the Hinterland”.

Of course you can ask for help from one of the many tourist agencies. Excursions include wine and olive oil tastings and opportunities to sample the excellent Istrian cuisine.

For families we recommend a slightly different sightseeing tour of Piran with the help of the quiz Embrace Piran.  If you answer correctly, you can win nice prizes.

Children are always keen to see the Aquarium Piran and the Magical World of Shells. For the end of the day we recommend an excursion with Subaquatic, the glass bottomed boat, which enables rather  different views - from the sea to the land and under the sea's surface.
