Lipica Stud Farm & Karst Treasures private day tour

8h Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun Easy EN

Journey through Slovenia's majestic Karst region, from the graceful steps of the Lipizzaner horses to ancient villages and delicious local delicacies.

Dive deep into the hidden corners of Slovenia in the Karst region. Starting with the charming village of Štanjel, the Karst plateau unfolds its limestone mysteries with every step. Here, history mixes with nature: the castle and Ferrari Garden in Štanjel tell tales of the past, while the unique topography gives rise to underground caves and springs. 

Try good local cuisine, experience local tradition, visit Lipica Stud Farm and discover the Karst treasures.

While you hike, you can enjoy the gastronomic heart of the Karst. Pršut kissed by the bora wind, known as the best ham in Slovenia, and Teran wine aged in red earth offers an authentic culinary journey. Finally, the elegance of Lipizzaner horses — icons of the Spanish Riding School and Slovenia's pride and joy of equestrianism — awaits you in the peaceful pastures of Lipica Stud Farm. Founded in 1580, the stud farm is a testament to beauty, tradition, and the enduring bond between man and horse.
