EXPLORE STELLENBOSCH BY BIKE

Cycling is undoubtedly one of the best way to explore an area, as the slower two-wheel pace allows one to soak in more of the glorious scenery around you. This is certainly the case in Stellenbosch, where picturesque country trails meander through sweeping vineyards with breath-taking mountain backdrops and refreshing wine tasting stops en-route.
If this sounds like a great way to explore Stellenbosch during your stay at Hotel Krige we recommend booking a mountain biking experience with our partners, Casa Cerveza, a local Stellenbosch business. Chris Norton and his team run a tourism division which trains and empowers youth members from the nearby Kayamandi community to work as cycling guides taking visitors on epic adventures on the lesser known Stellenbosch mountain biking trails known best to locals.
