Tailor-made experiences are also perfect for team building or business meetings. If you want to organize them by the sea and get to know Izola in a slightly different way, we invite you to take a look at the suggestions below.

1.      Turn into Romans at the Archaeological Park

Did you know that the status of Ancient Romans was apparent by where they lay on a lounger? Let your imagination run wild and transform into an ancient Roman, bonding with your colleagues through role-playing. Together, you will travel 2.000 years back in time, learn about Roman culture and taste the culinary delights of the time. Of course, the experience has to be authentic, so you will be lying down and enjoying food without using cutlery.

The Roman experience is available from May to October in the San Simon Archaeological Park, close to the sea, and is suitable for between 20 and 50 people. It is a perfect choice for a teambuilding, a fun group outing, or a special occasion. Would you like to find out more? Go to our online shop and send an inquiry.

2. Rowing for two: who has the courage or, better yet, the trust?

Have you heard of coastal rowing? It is a special rowing at sea, suitable for beginners and experienced rowers alike. This technique uses wider, more manageable rowing boats that do not tip over. You also have to trust your rowing partner, of course. Isn't forming trust the whole point of team building?

The rowing lesson introduces you to the basic rowing techniques. You also take part in a mini-regatta. Coastal rowing is suitable for groups of 8 to 36 people. It takes place during the warmer months: from April until the end of October. Sea lovers who are up for the challenge can find more information and an inquiry form in the online shop.

5.      Learn about the historical traditions in the pristine nature of the Izola countryside

Would you like more privacy for socializing with colleagues in pristine nature? We have a suggestion for that as well! Visit the picturesque village of Korte and let its inhabitants introduce you to their way of life and the customs of the past. They will take you to »kaštelir« (hillfort) - a former prehistoric settlement, where you can hear stories from the Roman and prehistoric periods, and up to the former acropolis overlooking the sea and salt pans. You can also arrange a tasting of a prehistoric dish. Later, you can take a walk to the water sources; test your laundry skills and balance by carrying a bucket on your head. Can you already imagine how entertaining the challenge could be?

If you are eager for some extra action, you can try your hand working in the fields or tasting olive oil. You can round off the day at one of the local eateries or restaurants. We recommend Gostilna Korte, Hiša Torkla or Medljan Tourist Farm.
