Slackpacking Vine to Beach

Slackpack Vine to Beach

This is Wine Country

Our wine walks, trails and slackpacking walks or hikes are based in the famous Hemel en Aarde valley part of the Overberg and Cape Fold-belt mountains. Because this is a wine region with many world famous wine Estates like Bouchard Finlayson and Sumaridge, Bouchard famous for its award winning Galpin Peak Pinot Noir. Almost 90% of the Hemel en Aarde wine farms and estates are IPW compliant

Slackpacking Vine to Beach

After the wine walks in the beautiful Hemel en Aarde valley we hike up the old ‘Baboon Path’ to the summit of Aasvolekop at 824 m AMS above mean sea level. This is where we have lunch and freshly brewed coffee or tea with spectacular views of the Hemel en Aarde valley to the north, Maanskynkop and Klein Rivier lagoon to the east. Looking south we have a view of Walker Bay and the pristine Grotto blue flag beach. This also gives us a view of the next days walk which takes us to ‘Sopiesklip.’ From Aasvolekop we descend through Fernkloof reserve, along the ‘pipe track’ into Voelklip and our hotel destination for the night.
