   Day 1 - Arrival Day


Let your "Istria Wine and Walk" experience begin...

Fly to Ljubljana (Easy Jet),Trieste (RyanAir)or Venice**(Easy Jet)& (RyanAir). On arrival enjoy a meet and greet transfer and be accompanied to a charming hotel in Koper. If necessary we'll be happy to arrange an optional private transfer for you from other airport/train stations (not specified earlier) to the meeting point in Koper.

In the afternoon/evening, you'll meet the Alfredo TOURS crew and the other fellow travelers you’ll spend this amazing experience with. You’ll receive all the information you need about the event and our schedule as well as receive your Welcome Pack.

Later tonight, you are invited to get together with the rest of the tour group to the winery restaurant for a typical dinner consisting of delicious local cold cuts (prosciutto, salami etc.), some lovely home-made bred and finally finish off with cheese - all accompanied by a wine tasting of the winery's wonderful selection of great wines.

** PLEASE NOTE: We arrange the transfer from/to Venice (Marco Polo airport) only in case there are 4 or more passengers in your party.





   Day 2 - The Event


Do you like to walk and relax in nature? Do you love wine? (Duh, who doesn’t?) If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are ready to start the "Istria Wine and Walk" experience. We’re challenging you to a unique biathlon that raises your heart rate and your blood sugar for a good cause.

After breakfast, we'll pick you up from your hotel and head for Istria (Croatia - 30 min. ride from Koper) for the famous 'Istria Wine and Walk' event!

The event starts in Buje where you'll get your tasting glass and a map of the trail and board a minibus. It will take us to the first stop, the amazing, half a century old Santa Lucia vineyard, the starting point of your wine and walk tour of the vineyards and olive groves.

Istrian winemakers and other local producers will greet you with their luscious culinary treats and divine wines at every 2 km. Enjoy the straw-yellow shades of Istrian Malvasia and ruby red colours of wine. The secret of their enjoyable, potable flavour is in the white soil you will be walking on, the sunny vineyard slopes you will be passing by and the pleasant breeze that will follow you on your way.

Your adventure will also take you to a lookout from which you can zoom in on the Ćićarija tops and the sea in the distance, as well as to the Škarline Nature Park and its unique creeks and small lakes, the "Tigor's friends" exhibition in the Tigor Gallery and 2 wine cellars nearby Brtonigla.

On your way back to Buje, you will stop at a small fair featuring a party that will last until late in the evening. There you will be able to buy the wines that you were thrilled by, as well as some other products to make sure that you will remember this walk in all the colours of wine.

After the event we'll return back to our Hotel in Koper.

Spend the last night of the tour in the town of Piran and Portoroz where you'll have wine tasting and dinner. Here you will taste wines from the region and Istrian cuisine in elegant surroundings. Overnight - Koper.



   Day 3 - Departure Day


Slowly start the day with a cup of coffee and breakfast. Today you have some free time to explore more of Istria or perhaps head out on a short local tour (not included in the tour package). Check-out of the hotel no latter than 12 noon. Transfer from your hotel to the airport (Ljubljana, Trieste or Venice**) for your flight home after your Week-end experience.
