Basic information

Škocjanski zatok Nature Reserve is open to the public according to the schedule – Opening hours.

Entrance to the nature reserve is free of charge, while guided tours are charged. Guided tours, which are obligatory for the groups, take place during the week (Monday to Friday) between 9.00 and 14.00. Their number is limited, so we recommend to the groups to arrange an appointment at least two weeks in advance.

Visitors can enter the reserve in the Bertoška bonifika area. Access is on foot only. Visitors can explore the reserve from the laid-out footpaths and observe the wildlife from the bird hides. Cycling in the reserve is not allowed except along the marked cycle track Parenzana, running along the edge of the reserve along the motorway. Visitors are requested to conform to the nature reserve code.

The information about the progress of the construction is available on our web site.

Getting there

To get to Škocjanski zatok Nature Reserve, you should exit highway Bivje – Koper at exit Bertoki and turn towards AMZS base. As soon as you cross the road bridge over the highway, turn left.
Koper bus and railway station are located nearby the reserve. As no public transportation is available from there to the reserve entrance at Bertoška bonifika, visitors arriving this way are adviced to take a taxi or walk along the Parenzana cycling track to the reserve (approx 20 minutes).
