The Crayfish Trail Company is offering a limited series of slackpacking tours that showcase the best of what the West Coast has to offer.
Our trails promise to offer a unique blend of adventure, culture, community, heritage, natural beauty, food and wine. These combined ingredients offer a truly unique ‘slackpack’ hiking experience. If you love the idea of exploring unspoiled stretches of coastline and pioneering new trails, but hate the thought of carrying a crippling load on your back, then slackpacking is for you.
The Crayfish Trail Route links a series of quaint coastal towns and noteworthy farms including: Elands Bay, Steenbokfontein, Lambert’s Bay, Doring Bay, Big River Bend and Papendorp. Each has its own unique story and something special to offer the intrepid explorer.
There are a number of different routes from which to choose. These include the Five Day Trail and a choice of Two Day Trails – all of this only 2½ hours outside of Cape Town. There are few places in the world where one can walk for kilometers and not see another soul. Not to mention spectacular ocean views from paths above cliffs, unique coastal vegetation, an abundance of bird life as well as seasonal wildflowers, whales and dolphins. This is an all-year destination in which each season brings its own surprises.
Our trial runs aim to include adventurous souls in the pioneering of a new trail with the intention of gaining valuable feedback on each guest’s experience. We can also tailor-make an option just for you, depending on your abilities and interests. Get in touch with us to reserve a place, as it is first come, first served.
Spring is around the corner and is the perfect opportunity to be part of the Crayfish Trail Company’s journey towards establishing the ultimate West Coast experience.
