Hop fields stretching across the horizon like a green curtain are a magnificent backdrop for bike riding tours through Žalec and its surroundings. The guided bike trip along the dirt roads crisscrossing the hop fields is especially memorable because the 30-kilometer tour leads past the most beautiful tourist landmarks of the Lower Savinja Valley.

You will be impressed by the underground world of the remarkable Pekel Cave, the name of which translates to “hell cave”, and the awe-inspiring Roman Necropolis. You will learn all there is to know about the hop, hop-growing, and beer brewing at the unique Ecomuseum of Hop Growing and Beer Brewing, located in a former hop-drying facility. For the perfect experience, you will enjoy a typical lunch of hop-pickers outdoors. Your visit to Žalec, the hop and beer capital of Slovenia, will end with a tasting at the Green Gold Beer Fountain.
