WINTER DESCRIPTION:
We will discover the mysterious beauty, secret underground waters and caves at the Regional Park of the Škocjan caves, famous for natural wonders above and below ground. Over millions of years the waters have created an underground wonderland of mysterious passages, spacious halls and an enormous, probably the biggest, subterranean canyon in the world.
A scenic road will later lead us to the charming little village of Štanjel. A sleeping beauty in which time stopped long ago. The unconventional bell tower of St. Daniels' gothic church has become the symbol of the village, which is guarded by walls and an impressive castle. We will stroll down its cobbled streets lined with stone houses and walk through the elegant Ferrari's Garden which extends over the sunny slopes just outside the walls.

SUMMER DESCRIPTION:
We will discover the mysterious beauty, secret underground waters and caves at the Regional Park of the Škocjan caves, famous for natural wonders above and below ground. Over millions of years the waters have created an underground wonderland of mysterious passages, spacious halls and an enormous, probably the biggest, subterranean canyon in the world.
A scenic road will later lead us to the Lipica stud farm. Some 400 years ago the indigenous Karst horse was refined with other breeds to meet the court and military demands of the Habsburgs. A local guide (by your own expenses) will show you around the estate- the stables, serene pastures and, of course, the marvelous horses.
