This tour is for all those who want something more. We meet at the highest point of Piran and Portorož with outstanding panorama.

Medium-difficult panoramic ascent to Maliji will end with a stop for a snack and some wine tasting. From there the road goes downhill to Strunjan valley and on the Parenzana track. This road then brings you to the Strunjan Nature Reserve across Pacuga and back to the starting point. Piran & the parks tour will be described in detail below.
