More About This Tour
Take on an adventure through the Bottelary Hills mountain bike trails with our guided mountain bike tour. The Bottelary Hills Conservancy, an organisation aimed at preserving the Bottelary Hills and its endangered flora and fauna species, opened the trails in 2011. Mountain bikers are allowed controlled access to the conservancy through allotted, labelled routes.
Nestled by a towering mountainous backdrop, the Bottelary Hills Conservancy features stunning views and undulating landscapes. The mountain bike tour sends guests through 20 private farms in the hills outside Stellenbosch.
Our guided mountain bike tour in the Bottelary Hills Conservancy kicks off early in the morning. We journey through smooth, twisting trails while enjoying remarkable views of the surrounding winelands. The trails are apt for riders of all fitness and experience levels. They comprise numerous single tracks, farm roads, and jeep tracks.
Besides the unbelievably scenic rolling hills, bask in dazzling vineyards responsible for the renowned wine in Cape Town, rich farmland, and magnificent conservation areas. This tour is the perfect escape from the rush of the city and the busyness of life.
Guided by the tune of gravel crunching under the wheels of mountain bikes, the rugged terrain leads you through the trail network. We will encounter authentic views that characterise the Bottelary Hills Conservancy skyline. Embarking on this thrilling adventure in nature is one of the best nature immersions and a great way to admire the lands that produce some of the best wine in Cape Town and the region.
Although our guided bike tour is only for half of the day, beginner bikers, adventure enthusiasts, families, and solo travellers enjoy it. Mountain biking at the Bottelary Hills Conservancy is ideal for clearing a busy mind and getting your workout in for the day.
