Boundless Hiking and Biking Pleasures

Up hill and down dale, the narrow road winds through the idyllic landscape that got its nickname from the gentle vineyards and slender cypresses: the “Styrian Tuscany”. It is not Italy, however, but northern Slovenia that one sees when gazing out over the hills. Perhaps while seated at a charming tavern with a glass of outstanding Styrian wine.
