HOP ON Green Karst – discovering the jewels of the Green Karst on a circular tour with a local guide
The Green Karst destination has developed a new way for visitors to discover attractions and authentic experiences with a local guide. Starting with 1 July, visitors in Postojna, Pivka and Ilirska Bistrica will be able to choose a new tourist service which includes transportation, entrance fees and local tour guiding. The ticket, which is valid for 48 hours from the time of purchase, costs 25€.
The HOP ON ticket will provide visitors with comfortable transportation between 9 stops in a tour van with an unlimited number of rides, the entrance fees for the Park of Military History Pivka, the Ecomuseum of the Seasonal Lakes of Pivka, the Karst Museum and Prem Castle, and live tour commentary in English and Slovene in the tour van. It will be possible to buy the HOP ON tickets in TIC Postojna, TIC Pivka, TIC Ilirska Bistrica and at select accommodation providers. This service allows visitors to hop on or off at their desired stop, where they can visit an attraction and enjoy some hiking or biking. After two and a half hours, they will be able to board the van at their stop. The van is also equipped to transport bicycles and will present an attractive option for bikers. The guided circular tour will increase the destination’s appeal in the summer, especially for younger explorers and everyone travelling without their own transportation. The HOP ON Green Karst is also a reaction to the poor public transport connections between the smaller tourist centres in the region. The HOP ON Green Karst operation is co-financed by the European Union from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe Investing in Rural Areas.
