Guided Hiking in the Cape Winelands

Guided hiking in the Cape Winelands is just one of the fun things to do in the area.

Eating and drinking at the many beautiful wine estates (there are over 200), is the top preoccupation of this region.  Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why hiking is a popular activity here too, as a counter to a little overindulgence.

Guided Hiking in the Cape Winelands

Guided hiking in the Cape Winelands is just one of the fun things to do in the area.

Eating and drinking at the many beautiful wine estates (there are over 200), is the top preoccupation of this region.  Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why hiking is a popular activity here too, as a counter to a little overindulgence. 

The landscapes are stunning. In fact, the jagged mountain peaks, snow-capped in winter, have earned Franschhoek, one of the most popular Wineland towns, the nickname ‘little Switzerland’. The foothills of these dramatic mountains are covered with acre upon acre of vineyards whose trellised vines turn gold in autumn. Waterfalls tumble down the valleys as they turn bright green in spring. Summer is harvest time under a wide blue sky. 

Guided hiking in the Cape Winelands takes advantage of all these settings.  Operators provide many different guided options to suit different fitness levels and areas of interest. Explore the vineyards on a hike that gives you some insights into viticulture. Follow a trail through one of the ecologically important nature reserves in the area and see why such a fuss is made of fynbos- the endemic flora of the Cape. More ambitious mountain trails will take you to high vantage points where you can survey the spectacular scenery of the Cape Winelands from above and see Table Mountain and Cape Town in the distance.
