Overview


Today, we uncover the natural beauty of the Winelands, an area known for its rows of vineyards and stunning estates dominated by forests, gardens and historic architecture. Our active exploration, on bike or foot, provides an intimate and fun opportunity to see this region - all at your own pace.

Cycle through Franschhoek on mountain bike, admiring the quaint buildings which date back to French Huguenot origins, and pass the bohemian galleries and designer boutiques for which this charming town is renowned. Enjoy sensational vistas over hidden gems, wine tastings at signature estates and an introduction to winemaking.

Alternatively, hike the Mount Rochelle Nature Reserve, stopping at a fresh-water spring and taking in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley from above. After a rejuvenating break of local coffees and delicious baked goods the wine exploration begins. After a rejuvenating break of local coffees and delicious baked goods the wine exploration begins.

This afternoon we discover the university town of Stellenbosch, its youthful vibe so at odds with the old-world buildings and tree-lined streets. Wander through a treasure trove of concept stores, iconic general dealers, art studios and museums, and soak up the vibe with a little people-watching from one of the cafés. Or, choose to enjoy a tasting at one of the independently owned family wineries in the area.
