This is the perfect trip for those of you who want to combine luxury and adventure. Stay at the award winning Head over Hills Luxury Retreat and spend your days on a mountain bike, on a trail or abseiling down a waterfall.
You don’t have to go far to explore the beauty of Knysna’- a guest said the other day and at Head over Hills Travels we agree. The forest and the trails around us in Knysna are so beautiful and you will not experience the beauty until you are out there to see the wild baboons, the elephant dung on the trail in front of you, the Knysna Loerie (turacao) in the wild and the foot print of the shy mountain leopard, the waterfalls, the indigenous forest, the fynbos and the South African national flower – our proteas. Stop and take photos, breathe in the fresh air and take a sip from the fresh water spring… So put on your trainers or get on your bike, but get out there and enjoy the ride! Nothing beats an exercise in the forest!
The Harkerville Trail offers a range of routes suited for all levels of riders. Four colour-coded routes, ranging from an easy family ride to fast-flowing single track meanders through shady plantations, costal fynbos and indigenous forest. The distances vary between 12 and 72 km. Homtini Cycle Trail in the Knysna forest also offers trails for every fitness level, from a gentle ride down the farm roads to a fairly technical ride on one of the official trails. Garden Route Trail Park is nestled at the very foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and you can bring the whole family to experience the magic.
