The Western Cape town of Ceres serves as a regional centre for the surrounding smaller towns and farms. The Ceres valley is well-known for growing cherries, fruit exports and the locally-produced fruit juices that are sold under the Ceres brand. Like other towns in the Cape Winelands region, Ceres offers the luxury of excellent wines, and an array of dining venues, coffee shops and spas.
Located 150 kilometres from Cape Town, the Ceres Valley is surrounded by the Matroosberg Mountains, wilderness areas, game reserves and farms. It is an accessible getaway for those who love the outdoors with the activities of hiking, golf, mountain biking, bird watching, slackpacking, horse riding, rock climbing, fishing and zip-lining on offer.
The region has something to offer visitors in every season. Fruit tree blossoms, indigenous flowers and an abundance of bird species are spring and summer attractions. In winter, you may be greeted by the splendour of snow-capped Matroosberg Mountains. When it snows, day visitors from Cape Town are drawn to this winterland for the novel experience of being in snow, building snowmen and throwing snowballs.
Make your way to Ceres and give yourself enough time to see and experience this area.
