    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Beauty, splendour & spectacular biking

South Africa is one of our oldest friends. We saw a stunning country that lent itself beautifully to our penchant for pedalling, and knew we absolutely had to introduce B&R travellers to it. It’s hard to believe that so much beauty, diversity and wine can be found so close to Cape Town—not to mention truly spectacular biking. In fact, this trip is not unlike many of our European jaunts, as we explore a compact area and stay in one elegant hotel after another. Pedalling along roads lined with dramatic vistas, we cover the Cape Winelands and cross over dramatic mountains, entering the Klein Karoo and Overberg. As our trip winds down, we will visit the coastal town of Hermanus before ending up in Cape Town.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Enthusiast

This trip is rated Enthusiast, meaning it’s appropriate for travellers who bike about once a week at home. Daily biking distances usually vary from 25 to 40 km amid the vineyards, farmlands and coastline of South Africa’s Western Cape. The riding is on predominantly asphalt roads, with the occasional compact dirt road. You can expect to encounter a few steep hills and at least one steep descent. There are plenty of shorter and longer options available each day to accommodate a wide range of fitness levels.

The Traveller

“I bike about once a week at home.”

The Terrain

Gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.
