The Franschhoek Valley and town offers plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained while on vacation. One of the best ways to discover the area is the Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour through the picturesque vineyards, offering breath-taking scenery and warm hospitality with world-class cuisine and fine wines. On a sunny day, with the required permits it’s possible to cycle all the way up the steep Simonsberg mountains, and various other biking areas for those less avid cyclists. The nearby area also offers Premier Fly Fishing at various trout farms offering rainbow Trout and Small Mouth Bass in crystal clear dams and rivers. The area offers some of South Africa’s most beautiful hiking trails, the Franschhoek Mountains, Drakenstein Mountains and adjacent Boland Mountains offer both day hikes and overnight hikes. Start with a stroll on the 55ha estate that allows you to explore the vineyards and takes you up the mountain for spectacular views. The more adventurous hikers can opt for the tougher challenges, with some trails requiring permits. For those looking for something a little different, there are also horse carriage rides available on the estate and or wine tasting on horseback, at a neighbouring farm. The main street of Franschhoek offers plenty of boutique shopping, lined with many restaurants to rest your feet, as well as spa’s to unwind with a relaxing massage.
