Tour description
You will be picked up from your accommodation in Trieste at 8.30 a.m. to start an active day out exploring the lovely natural environment of the Carso plateau. We will walk from Duino to Opicina along the old roads and trails that used to link the ancient Carso villages of Ceroglie, Malchina, Prepotto, San Pelagio, Ternova, Samatorza, Sales, Sgonico, Rupingrande and finally Opicina. We'll learn why the Carso (Karst), with its surface and underground phenomena, its extraordinary biodiversity and its unique landscape became the scientific term for similar land formations around the world. It's an easy-doing itinerary where you don't need trekking clothes as it's a long walk through woods, meadows dotted with red sumac, and enchanting karstic pathways with panoramic views over the city, the seafront of Istria and the lagoon of Grado. Frequent stops along the way to visit the enchanting little villages and sample local products are also included in this wonderful tour that fills the eyes and warms the heart!
