Day 1 – Arrival in Stellenbosch

Today, we’ll meet you at Cape Town International Airport and transfer you to South Africa’s wine capital, Stellenbosch, a charming and vibrant town, steeped in history and surrounded by natural beauty. Once you’re settled into your accommodation, we’ll enjoy a welcome dinner together in town, so that we can discuss the days of biking ahead!

Day 2 – Stellenbosch Mountain

To kick start our MTB Tour, we’ll head over to the local’s playground, the infamous G-spot, a 2km long gradually descending single track trail with loads of  jumps and berms! Once fully warmed up, we’ll pass through Eden Forest, Coetzenberg and Mont Marie, home to a maze of technical single tracks, with awesome downhill opportunities. Lunch at Mont Marie estate gives you the opportunity to enjoy the majestic mountain and vineyard settings without having to concentrate on staying on your bike!

Day 4 – Boschendal Wine Estate

Boschendal is one of the oldest farms in South Africa and is a wine and food destination in its own right. The five mountain bike routes on the estate range from intermediate to advanced riding, offering plenty of fast, technical single track and downhill forested sections in a dramatic, mountainous setting. Settling down to lunch in the shade of oaks in front of the historic Manor House is a wonderful way to wind down after a challenging morning.
