Knysna, Half Day Cycle, Village, The Heads & Lagoon

  • Overview
  • Prices

We meet on Thesen Island, situated in a marina that is spread over 90ha and consists of 19 man-made islands linked by 21 arched bridges and surrounded by 25ha of tidal waterways. We ride along the banks of the Lagoon and stop to admire its varied bird life.  This sparkling body of water is where five fresh water rivers, flowing from the Outeniqua Mountains, meets a surge of sea water from the Indian Ocean. Marking this meeting place are two large headlands known as the Knysna Heads – a pair of towering sandstone cliffs.  With a bit of effort, we cycle up to the Heads where we can look down on the narrow stretch of water that has been the nemesis of many ships in the past. The views are spectacular and you can see the whole of Knysna and beyond.

We ride back to town via the lovely Leisure Isle and Steenbok Nature reserve where you feel lost in time.  After cycling through the Waterfront with its many art galleries and eateries we stop for refreshments, served with a view over the water.

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 $30 USD). Enquire about discounts for larger groups (typically 6 guests and over).
