Cost: R100 pp and R50 for children under 10 yrs
IMPORTANT: Don’t forget your torch and something warm to wear after dark!
Wear hiking shoes – you are climbing a mountain.
Enjoy the sunset over Table Mountain with stunning views of the Winelands, while enjoying your snacks on Klapmutskop with a glass of bubbly to toast the New Year!
The marked Vineyard Trail is 9,75km in total and starts from the Trail Centre on Delvera farm and takes you through a Greater Simonsberg Conservancy and Yellowwood forest to the top of Klapmutskop.
It will take you about one hour to the top from the Trail Centre so don’t be there later than 18h30, so that you make it in time for the sunset and a glass of bubbly. You might just win a pair of Hi-Tec hiking shoes in a lucky draw!
Vehicles can also transport some people, especially children to the half way mark where the singletrack hiking trail starts at the Pepper Tree – this will shorten the route to under 5km in total and it takes about 30 minutes to the top from the Pepper Tree. After sunset, you will probably be back at your car between 21h00 & 22h00, depending your walking speed.
Permits cost R100 per person (R50 for kids under 10) and includes a glass of sparkling wine at the top and juice for the kids. Also the optional shuttle and a map. As it is a marked route, your group can do their own thing. Snacks & cooldrinks for sale at the Trail Centre.
Picnics must be booked and paid for at least two days before the event date. They are made by Simonsberg Cafe on Delvera. 5% discount on picnic bookings of 15 & more.
