More About This Tour
An idyllic bicycle wine tour in Franschhoek meets memorable experiences at scenic Franschhoek vineyards. Guests are introduced to Franschhoek, a scenic gem a stone throw away from Cape Town, by bike on butter-brown trails.
The village`s history began in the 1600s when French Huguenots settled in the valley. They contributed their vinicultural knowledge to the valley, giving rise to some of South Africa's oldest and best wine estates. Today, the influence of the French is evident in the names of various wine farms.
The Franschhoek vineyards delight local and international wine lovers alike. Several sophisticated wine estates cling to the mountain slopes fringing the valley. Each offers a unique experience, but dazzling views adorn them all. Our Franschhoek bicycle wine tour follows a gentle pace. This allows you to take in the winelands of the Grande Provence Wine Estate, La Bri Estate, and Rickety Bridge Wine Estate.
We will stop by these three estates for a breather and a memorable wine tasting experience. The Grande Provence Wine Estate will excite guests with its history dating back about four centuries. As for the La Bri Estate, you can indulge in palate-igniting biltong or chocolate and wine pairings. The Rickety Bridge Wine Estate welcomes guests to exquisite wine tasting festivities to the backdrop of rugged mountains.
Besides the winelands` trails, our tour guides guests through the town. As you cycle past the Huguenot Monument, take in the sights, and enjoy the fresh air skimming over your skin. This is one experience made pleasant by the tranquil pace of the winelands meander tour. Moving onto epicurean pursuits at Paulina's Restaurant on Rickety Bridge, guests can enjoy tasty meals from the bistro-style menu.
Our Franschhoek bicycle wine tour is a delight that guests of all fitness levels and experiences can enjoy. The peaceful journey is sure to create an unforgettable memory.
