Stellenbosch is every cyclist’s dream destination. A multitude of biking trails guarantees a perfect match for every rider’s level of expertise. Days on the Winelands Trail fly by as we wake up in the gorgeous valleys, feast on breakfast and then hit the trails. We zip through vineyards and emerge in the notorious trail network that holds panoramic views around every corner as we weave through the paths between iconic wine farms whose names you’ll recognise from premium wine lists at restaurants. Back at our guesthouse, recline by the pool. When rejuvenated, get dressed for a gastronomic experience second to none at some of the world’s finest restaurants.
WINELANDS TRAIL ITINERARY
OUR JOURNEY BEGINS
You will be met by your representative at Cape Town International Airport and make the short transfer directly to your accommodation in Stellenbosch. After you have settled in we will have a quick briefing and do any bike set up required. Then it’s straight out to get a taste of some of the trails we have planned for the next couple of days.
Our first evening will allow us to see the historic town centre and enjoy a delicious meal and a glass of local wine.
Our first full day will take us through town and up the Helshoogte Pass where we’ll enjoy some superb views into the Franschhoek valley. Then it’s down into the trails of Banhoek and Boschendal where we will have lunch under the oak trees. For those looking for a little more we will continue on to Franschhoek town.
We return in the afternoon to our accommodation before dinner on a nearby wine farm.
We roll straight out the front door and head down through the Blauklippen Valley and onwards to the renowned Jonkershoek trails where we’ll spend most of our morning. It’s then back to our accommodation for a picnic lunch and an afternoon wine tasting along the valley.
For those looking for something more sedate, today's ride will be a short trip towards Jordan and a route around the Bottelary Hills.
Our final dinner is a festive affair and allows us to once again take in all that Stellenbosch has to offer.
After a sumptuous breakfast it’s time to say goodbye. Your driver will be there to transfer you back to Cape Town International Airport.
