Slovenia is a very diverse country. In the same day, you can go skiing in the morning, have a delicious lunch along Ljubljanica River in the capital Ljubljana and go for a swim to Slovenian coast. The scene seen through the window of your car will be changing every few minutes.
Locals like to go to the south, to reach the sun. Especially popular is South Western part called Istria. Istria is the biggest peninsula on the Adriatic coast. It stretches from Italy, Trieste suburbs on the most North through Slovenia down to the most Southern Part of it, to Croatia, to its crown Pula, well known for the sixth biggest Roman amphitheater in the world.

Along the way, you will be surprised how rocky the terrain is: most of it is a limestone terrain with numerous Karst formations. Cultivating the land was very challenging: there are numerous hills as well as rocks everywhere. A special architecture was designed by locals, so called dry walls - walls you are going to see around fields. The calcium and other minerals in the rocks, red soil and gentle sun are the best for wine and olive growing. Would you like to have some hands on experience? Would you like to join locals at their daily activities, like grape harvesting, picking by hand olives or even olive oil pressing? Do you prefer more extravagant experience like truffle hunting? This is a real authentic way of living in Istria.
