Monday evening Cyril gave us some pretty unhappy news. Instead of taking two steps forward, we took 3 steps back into an adjusted Level 3 lockdown. Earlier curfews (9 pm), no booze and many additional restrictions that, although are frustrating, are very necessary in order to flatten the curve. Just because there are some setbacks these holidays, it doesn’t mean they are ruined. The team at Elgin Adventure Centre are here to save the day and can give you a list of outdoor, adventure activities you can still enjoy during the global pandemic.
Hire a mountain bike in Elgin and get outdoors to explore. Exercise is still allowed in fact; it’s encouraged and what a perfect way to practice a little social distancing than by bike. Pedal your way over the rolling, scenic hills, vineyards and mountains regions found all around Elgin Valley and its surrounds. Even better, hire a tour guide and let our team take you on new and exciting trails you couldn’t even imagine existed. There is a mountain bike route for all ages and fitness levels and if getting sweating is not to your liking why not upgrade to an Ebike?
Get grounded and join us on a hike through the incredible Elgin Valley. Elgin Adventure Center offers you guided hiking tours through the Groenlandberg mountains. This region is a small mountain range that surrounds Elgin and forms part of the Cape Fold Belt. Only one hour out of Cape Town it was historically used for ox-wagon journeys from the Cape. It is a hot spot for Ecotourism thanks to the conservation efforts of the local farmers who are invested in the Biodiversity of the region. Join us on an informative and easy-going hike in the beautiful mountains surrounding the Elgin Valley. Our guide will give you a brief but exciting history of the valley and ensure your efforts are rewarded with the best views possible!
Why not get in contact with our team and let us design an adventure specifically to your adventure needs whilst remaining well within the new level three lockdown restrictions. All our guides have been well trained and informed on social distancing and COVID restrictions. Let our experienced tour guides take you on the best roads and trails Elgin & the Overberg have to offer. Whether it's an epic hill climb or a lung-busting trail run, tell us what you want and we will take care of it.
