New Fatbike Tours

Mountain Fatbike Tour

Enjoy the best bike ride you will ever have and experience the sensation of riding on soft sand with the new Fatbikes with super wide tyres! There are 2 stunning trails and you can add this as part of your experience in Gansbaai.

Hermanus Beach Trail

Beautiful beach ride from Grotto Beach to Sopiesklip - R500 per person (2-3 Hours)

Mountain Bike Tour

You can pick you up from your accommodation in Hermanus or Gansbaai or meet at Dutchies restaurant at Grotto Beach. After a briefing and practice on the bikes we will set off up the Beach. Hopefully along the way you may see the odd seal in the water or beach. The ride to the rock is 6km where you will stop, swim, refresh yourselves and have a look inside the cave where a guy lived for over a year. The ride is beautiful and at low tide fairly easy. The guide will be videoing the tour and you will get a link to the video of your experience the following morning.

Sand Dunes Trail

Stunning ride from the mountain down to the beach - R500 per person (2-3 Hours)

Mountain Bike Tour

This is the ultimate ride from near Grootbos nature reserve down the mountain to the top of the Sand Dunes. The trail to the dunes is special, running on a narrow sandy horse trail through the Fynbos. When reaching the dunes you will make your way up and across to reach a fantastic downhill section where you will pick up speed before reaching the top of your first vertical dune face. After a briefing on how to ride down the dune you ride down the face, but for those just wanting an easy ride you can go around the side where it is an easy slope. The dune face may feel impossible and dangerous to do but the ride is infact very controlled and the sand will slow the bike down. What your mind tells you is impossible will in fact be very enjoyable and easy. Your guide will be at the bottom of the dunes videoing your challenges so remember to smile :-) The guide will also teach you how to do slalom like a skier on a snow ski slope. This is excellent fun on a bike and not too difficult to achieve. After the dunes you will pick up a 4x4 trail down to the beach. From there you will head back up to the car park but for those who are already tired your guide can bring the 4x4 down to the rocks so you do not have to ride up :-)

De Kelders - Hermanus Beach Trail

Beautiful 22km ride from De Kelders to Hermanus - R650 per person (Fair/Good bike fitness required)

Mountain Bike Tour

Join an epic ride from De Kelders to Hermanus on a 20k ride along the beach. If you have a car riders will meet in De Kelders then set off towards the beach along the best path for Whale watching in the world! (July-December) this is not a race so riders will take their time and enjoy the scenery to the beach. Once at the beach riders will enter the Walker Bay reserve then head down the 4x4 trail and along the cliff edges to the huge stretch of Die Plaat beach running from De Kelders to Hermanus. Once riders are on the large stretch of beach the sand is normally firm along the waterline so riding is relatively easy. To ride on open beach for kilometres is wonderful, next to the waves rolling in and hopefully spotting the odd seal and spotting rare African Oyster Catchers. This is an eco-trip so at all times riders will observe the nature from a comfortable distance and will not cause any stress on the environment or animals they come across. Riders will stop along the way at the stunning Sopiesklip rock with cave built into a rock by a local man who stayed there for up to a year! If you have enough energy rider will head inland and ride along the Estuary back to Grotto Beach (Additional 4-5km on rugged terrain) To end riders will reach Grotto beach and stop for refreshments before they load up the bikes on the trailer and drive back to De Kelders. Should you not have a car then we can collect and drop you off from your accommodation for free from Hermanus or De Kelders / Gansbaai.

Sunset Dunes Tour!

R500 per person (2 Hours)

Mountain Bike Tour

This is the ultimate sunset ride from the top of the Dunes down to the beach in time for the sun to set over the ocean.

The trail to the dunes is special, running on a narrow sandy horse trail through the Fynbos. When reaching the dunes you will work through a series of small Dunes to build up the courage then you will hit the main dune field which has a vast array of gentle and steep slopes. The great thing about the big dunes is that you can choose to go down them or go around them so the tour fits all capabilities and skill levels. The big dunes may feel impossible and dangerous to do but the ride is in fact very controlled and the sand will slow the bike down. What your mind tells you is impossible will in fact be very enjoyable and easy.

Your guide will also teach you how to do slalom like a skier on a snow ski slope. This is excellent fun on a bike and not too difficult. After the dunes the guide will pick up a 4x4 trail down to the beach and cycle back along the De Kelders to hopefully see some Whales on the way back.

The EPIC!

The epic is a blend of both the dunes and the ride to Hermanus - R750 per person (3-5 Hours)

Mountain Bike Tour

The Epic is a fantastic all-round for the moderately fit biker wanting to blend both the Sand Dunes trail with the De Kelders to Hermanus Trail. This epic tour starts at 'the base' in De Kelders where rider will drive to the top of the trail for the Dunes. Riders will then spend around 1 1/2 hours on the dunes exploring all of the steep dunes and trying out some amazing jumps. (option is always there to watch others fall :-)) The dunes have a whole range of slopes to try out different skills from steep faces to long slopes excellent for Slalom. DonÕt worry if you are not experienced with doing jumps or tricks as there is no rush or pressure and riders are all here to have fun. After the fun on the Dunes riders will hit the 4x4 trail down to Die Plaat and then cycle on the 20km stretch to Grotto Beach in Hermanus. If you have enough energy the tour will head inland and ride along the Estuary back to Grotto Beach (Additional 4-5km on rugged terrain). Riders will then stop for refreshments at Grotto Beach before loading up the bikes and returning to De Kelders / Gansbaai by car or your accommodation in Hermanus.
