More About Elgin

    Of the many wine regions in South Africa, the Elgin Valley is a hidden gem that instantly charms visitors. Fringed by the Groenland and Kogelberg Mountains, Elgin lies in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. The region offers a one-of-a-kind nature experience that feeds the soul. The Elgin Valley was formally reserved for travellers to take a break on their wagon journey. Elgin thrived with apple farms, which gave the valley its name. Today, the region boasts lush pear and apple orchards and award-winning cool-climate wines. Its inhabitants are wine farmers, cycle specialists, adventurers, and conservationists. Elgin's rustic charm is hard to resist. It effortlessly warms the hearts of international and local visitors. Experience the valley on our Elgin mountain bike tour, where we embark on a memorable journey off the beaten track to explore the beloved region.
