Heli Mountain Biking is a huge thing in Europe and America, but not many South Africans have had the chance to strap their mountain bike to the side of a helicopter! This is all about to change, so best you get ready to go all ‘Maverick’ on the singletrack!
Here’s the deal: there is only one operator I know that offers helibiking in SA, and that’s ‘Cape Town Helicopters’. Their ‘Explore Collection’ range of experiences include a range of activity options, ranging from mountain-top gin tastings, gourmet fynbos picnics and authentic West Coast culinary experiences, to curated Photographic Tours throughout the sub-continent.
Helibiking, however, is top-of-the-list and promises an aerial adventure like no other. Imagine flying directly from the Cape Town Waterfront all the way to the Stellenbosch mountains in a state-of-the-art helicopter equipped with aviation-approved bike racks. Yup, you can experi-ence this natural high with your mountain bike en route to some of the Cape’s greatest trails.
The Airbus helicopter seats 5x PAX while also transporting five bicycles, and the short travel-ing time enable visitors to the Cape to quickly reach inaccessible locations, with both half-day and full-day trips on offer. Or you can extend your adventure to include overnighting in any wilderness destination of your choice, including the Cederberg and Karoo.
Game viewing, nature immersion, star gazing, peak bagging … the sky (literally) is the limit ... Bikes are generally supplied by the riders, but ‘EXPLORE COLLECTION is able to offer rental solutions to guests should they require this as part of the service.
Locations are tailored around the riders’ skills level and adventure preferences, and obviously will also be determined depending on group size and ages, but each package strives to offer a unique and premium experience for outdoor adventure enthusiasts looking for the ultimate outdoor experience.
Come and fly with us - we can’t wait to share your natural high!
