Franschhoek, Full-Day, Mountains & Wine Hike

  • Overview
  • Prices

Making the claim for the best view in a region famous for them, the hike to Perdekop Peak in the mountains above Franschhoek has hikers enjoying lunch while gazing at vistas that take in range after range of Cape mountains.

Set in a private reserve of great craggy mountains, the trail is a straight-forward walk up. It’s steep at first but flattens out soon enough. The fynbos vegetation is both pristine and diverse, and mountain antelope, baboons, ravens and even black eagles are often seen. Approaching the summit, the alpine grassland gives way to a rocky peak from which most of the south-west Cape can be seen – even as far as Table Mountain. As further reward, it’s an easy-angled walk down via a path that throws up huge views at every turn.

The reserve has two shorter trails to accommodate the wine-day hiker, each with superb views as the reward to a stiff uphill hike. Unlike the full circuit, wine-day hikers can enjoy the latter half of the day, sipping from cellar to cellar.

Note: Prices are quoted in United States Dollars (USD) per person and are subject to change without notice. Even so we are based in South Africa, the recent swings in the local currency necessitated the conversion to a USD based rate system. This means we don’t change our rates with the swings and can absorb a 2 to 3 point swing up or down, without having to update rates constantly. It ensures a stable rate and consistent quality and product availability throughout our product portfolio.

Minimum group size is 2 guests (we’ll still run the tour for a single guest, subject to a private tour supplement of $40 USD). Enquire about discounts for larger groups (typically 6 guests and over).
