A bicycle will take you on many adventures during this journey: exercising in an outdoor fitness centre, exploring fascinating stone sculptures, tasting the finest olive oils, exploring the unique and peculiar world of cacti...
A good start to the day: Forma Viva
After a good morning coffee on one of the many Portorož terraces, hop on a bicycle and follow the cycling route to the Seča peninsula, where you can do a workout at an outdoor fitness centre at Forma Viva. Explore the cultural heritage of the area as well – take a stroll among the fascinating stone sculptures crafted by artists from 30 countries over a period of forty years.
First stop: Gramona farmhouse
The route will then take you through the picturesque olive groves to Seča above Portorož, where the Gramona farmhouse is located. It has been family-owned for four generations and is now run by Nina, a friendly hostess who will introduce you to the local products made in a completely natural way.
In the spotlight, of course, is the extra virgin olive oil of the Gramona family, made from olives that combine the sun, sea wind and microclimate of the salt pans that gives it a unique flavour. You can also buy and take home the olive oil as well as other Gramona products. Take time out for a walk along the olive groves overlooking the beautiful Sečovlje salt pans.
Second stop: World of cacti
Afterwards, be prepared for something completely new - the peculiar world of cacti in Seča, which has become a real tourist attraction. There are as many as 1,500 cactus species in the collection, the oldest of which are over 50 years old. On a guided tour, you will learn a lot of useful information about cactus cultivation and care, and you can also buy little spikelets as a keepsake.
Final stop: Treat yourself to a delicious dinner
After a day like this, be sure to treat yourself to a delicious dinner at one of the great restaurants by the sea.
