Hiking the Cape

This dedicated Cape hiking itinerary is designed for travellers who want to combine the outdoors with an extended city stay. Cape Town offers everything expected from a modern city; fine cuisine, art, music and theatre, historic architecture and cultural diversity. But few visitors have the opportunity to explore the city’s wild side. Here, you will find some of the country’s most scenic, accessible hiking within easy reach of the best 5-star hotels.

Combine sightseeing of the iconic landmarks with hiking away from the busy trails and experience Cape Town’s true essence. While these are our chosen routes, we will, of course adapt them to varying levels of fitness and experience.

Do you like the concept of a combined Cape Town hiking and sightseeing trip, but have specific objectives in mind? Drop us a line and we’ll curate a tailored trip for you.




5 nights/6 days


Cape Town's champagne air
Lose yourself
in the endless views
the soul of South Africa's oldest city
in the solitude of the mountains
