Wine Walks

Wine country

You are now in wine country, our Wine Walks in this wine region of South Africa which form part of the Western Cape Overberg. Therefore the nutrient poor soils in the area are ideal for vineyards and the Fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Our Walks

We hike through many parts of the beautiful Hemel en Aarde valley.  This forms the wine lands of the Western Cape wine region about 92 km from Cape Town, South Africa. This is proper wine country, where the many wine estates that offer wine tastings from award winning wines famous in the region. Wines from this valley are guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning wine enthusiast on any of our walks and hikes.

Local FGASA ( Nature,Field & Marine Guide) and Wine & Cape Tourism  guided walks.Your guides are fully accredited and well versed in the history and culture of the area accompany  you through indigenous fynbos, vineyards, fruit orchards, berry farms and olive groves. The walks stop at the vineyards, to taste the Hemel en Aarde valley award winning wines and  local produce of this fertile valley.

Wine hikes

Wine Tastings

We have a selection of walks to choose from, ranging from 1 to 5 day walks and trails. Walk at an easy pace and enjoy the unparalleled scenery and hidden treasures of the Hemel en Aarde “Heaven and Earth” Valley. Experience the valley fynbos as you traverse through wine, berry and horse farms. Freshly brewed coffee and tea and lunch breaks at well planned locations along the various routes become highlights on our wine walks. Because the overnight slack-pack hikes are fully catered and  luggage is transferred ahead to your overnight stop. Carrying only a light day-pack on our wine walks enables full enjoyment of the trails and frees one to carry cameras and binoculars (over 60 endemic bird species in the region).

Walks

One of the wonderful aspects of the wine walks is that the distances can be increased to suit the more energetic groups. There is a vast network of trail routes in the Overberg wine lands. On the other hand the hikes or walks can be adapted into shorter, easier walks/hikes for others.  The trail lies in the midst of the Cape Floral Kingdom and without question is floristically the most well-endowed walking trail in existence. The Mediterranean climate of the region favours walking all year round. The  diverse ecological  habitats from marine to mountain makes for interesting and varied walking/hiking experiences.

Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, unfortunately the world we live in has changed forever. Please note that all the prices quoted  are subject to change because of local and global conditions.

Obviously we will try our best to stick to the the prices as quoted throughout this vast website. Any changes will be communicated at the time of booking, and your booking confirmation price will remain fixed.

As a result there have been many additional restrictions placed on us (Africansunroad.com) by our suppliers and providers, some of which we have been required to pass on down the line, and we trust that you understand.
