Unwind in Prince Albert in the Great Karoo with some great gourmet cooking and adventurous calorie burning. This 6 day tour involves some creative cooking and cycling up the mighty Swartberg Pass and down in to The Hell. Limited to 10 cyclists (no less than 4)

 

Today you will arrive in Prince Albert at about 13:00. You will enjoy a cooking demonstration – then there will be time for sun downers & freshen up before “tucking” in to this delicious cuisine.

Early start at 07:00 – and meet at African Relish for coffee & rusks. Then Cycle to De Rust via Prince Albert Valley & Meiringspoort Pass. Breakfast will be served at the top of Kredouw Pass and  you can enjoy a refreshing swim at the spectacular waterfall with soaring cliff walls and rock formations that line the 25 km tarred road which winds along the floor of the gorge, crossing the Groot River 25 times. The road through the poort is a remarkable engineering feat, but the overwhelming features of a cycle through Meiringspoort are the wonders of nature. Among the most scenic spots is the Skelm tumbling into a dark pool which, legend has it, is bottomless.
