Tucked away between the picturesque mountains of the Hemel (‘heaven’) and Aarde (‘earth’) Valley, near Hermanus, Overberg is Heaven & Earth Horse Trails, on Karweyderskraal Farm.

We offer a standard outrides on horseback through fynbos, wildflowers and beautiful mountain scenery, guided by our experienced horse-riding instructors. These trails are 90 minutes in duration but can vary from one to four hours to suit your needs. To celebrate a special occasion or for something different, we can customise your ride to include a picnic, braai, engagement shoot or even just a stop for sundowners at a spot with a great view.

Our Two Valleys Wine Route is a three-hour ride on a circular trail through surrounding vineyards. We stop at Sumaridge Wine Estate and La Vierge Wine Cellar & Restaurant and delight in fynbos scents as we ride on trails through Upper Valley and Lower Valley.

Our romantic Sunset ride departs in the late afternoon to soak up the last of the sun’s rays and to enjoy the soft light as the sun goes down. This ride is one to two hours in duration.

We have a weight limit of 100kg per rider and recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and shoes. We provide riding hats. Please check the weather forecast before booking as rides are weather dependent.

We also have accommodation available in our 6-sleeper, self-catering cottage. Guests are invited to bring along their mountain bikes and hiking shoes to enjoy many kilometres of trails. On hot days you’ll love a swim in our dam.

Whether you would like to enjoy a slow gaited walk or an adventurous outride on horseback, we welcome you to our farm for a variety of trails with scenic mountain views and wine tasting on spectacular wine estates.
