Portorož & Piran

All the ingredients for a spring picnic are hidden in Portorož & Piran

The spring is slowly waking up and our bodies are starting to crave those active experiences in nature. Diverse sea-side landscape offers numerous possibilities for those active moments, you can share. 

Take a walk on the Piran Wall, discover hidden cultural treasures or indulge yourself to discovering aromas and tastes between olive orchards and vineyards of the diverse Istrian countryside. Discover hidden spots on steep cliffs by the sea or take your bike on a care-free ride around a picturesque landscape, connected by the Parenzana bike trail. Feel the scent, the passion and the warmth of the Mediterranean. 

When hiking around the Šavrin Hills, be sure to take a peek in the bushes, where you can find the tasty asparagus. Picnic with a view of the Piran Bay, in a nicely smelling shade of the olive trees will be made perfect by a basket of Mediterranean goodies. Here you will find artichokes, chard, dandelion, tubers and more. When you find yourself among the vast vineyards, be sure to taste our typical wines: the red Refosco d’Istria and the white Malvasia. 

Do you like the sea? A walk around the coast or yoga by the sea-side are excellent choices, as one can breathe-in around 10 billion curative aerosols in one day by the sea. If you want to experience a closer bond with the sea itself, we can take you to a sea-side adventure with a sail boat or a fishing boat. With any luck, you can catch and prepare your own dinner. European bass with a bit of our special salt flower will get your taste buds going.

Sečovlje is home to hundreds of years of traditional salt production and a unique open-air wellness centre. Immerse yourself into the brine pool to get that bloodstream going and stimulate your body to excrete unwanted substances, all the while enjoying the view of the Sečovlje salt pans. 

At the sunset, take a sip of the special Rosé wine, which tastes of the Portorož Rose. 

Enrich your shared moments with an active and diverse break in our piece of the Mediterranean. A good experience is guaranteed.
