Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Wellington whilst cycling along the quiet farm roads. Various picturesque wine farms will be visited during the tour and guests have plenty of opportunities to taste South Africa's very own variety - Pinotage - for which the Wellington area is best known.
Guests are met by their qualified cycling and wine guide at their accommodation in Cape Town at 8am. Wellington is a beautiful hidden valley which is situated between Cape Town and the statuesque Hawequas mountain range. The area is well-known for producing some of the best Pinotage of South Africa due to its dry and favorable climate.
We start the 7km long ride from an old historic wine farm and ride along a very scenic and quiet farm road, a mix of well-maintained gravel and some paved sections in between. The Hawequas Mountain stands majestically to the eastern side of the valley and presents an impressive backdrop to the many vineyards.
One of the highlights of this tour is a private cellar tour at a very old and historic wine farm with a personal wine tasting included. The ultimate Winelands experience is to relax with a glass of Pinotage and enjoy a picnic lunch with mountain views.
Mountain bikers can go for a ride at Welvanpas farm which offers routes for every fitness level and provides the opportunity to cycle in between beautiful vineyards. Alternatively, take a leisurely stroll along the shady river walk and enjoy the calm surroundings.
On the way back to Cape Town you have the option of doing another wine or Brandy tasting in Paarl (own expense).
