With two big, bold mountain ranges in its vicinity, the Swartberg and the Outeniqua, Wilderness is the perfect base for mountain biking. There are literally dozens of forgotten mountain passes in this area, many of them built by 19 century road builder Thomas Bain and some of them now in conditions best tackled on a mountain bike. These roads will take you into areas of stunning natural beauty, winding through river gorges and away from crowds.
The endless indigenous and commercial forests around Wilderness also offer mountain biking opportunities and, if grinding hill work is not your thing, there are gentle tracks that follow the edge of pristine lagoons.
Our Wilderness mountain bike operators can customise a mountain biking tour for you; organizing excellent accommodation, keeping the bikes in tip-top condition and making sure all the best routes are included and that the rides match your abilities.
