Full description
Experience for yourself why the remarkable underground system at Skocjan Caves was designated a UNESCO natural and cultural World Heritage site — one of only a few underground caves in the world with this distinction.  

Your tour starts with a pickup at your cruise terminal or hotel in Piran or Portoroz. Ride in a comfortable, clean, air-conditioned car or van for the 1-hour drive to Skocjan Caves in Divaca. Your English-speaking driver will explain the history, politics, and interesting facts about Slovenia as you drive through the beautiful countryside.

Upon arrival at the caves, you will be escorted to the entrance and given tickets to join a larger group for a 2-hour, English-speaking tour by a local cave guide. You can explore the passageways of one of the world’s largest underground chambers with a total depth of 200 meters. Later, you will cross the Cerkvenik Bridge for a breathtaking view of the Reka River’s underground canyon.  

After you exit the caves, you can take some time to buy souvenirs or enjoy a coffee or snack. You can then reconvene with your small group and driver to either enjoy an optional lunch at an authentic Slovenian restaurant or return directly to Piran or Portoroz.
