Dirtopia has launched a unique outdoor experience in the winelands in the form of a yogathlon – a combination of trail running and mountain biking with yoga.
Outdoor enthusiasts can choose between a 5km, 7km or 12,5km run followed by a 45 minutes yoga session. Alternatively start your day with a social mountain bike ride with David Hogan from 7.30am.
Based on Delvera farm on the R44 between Stellenbosch and Klapmuts, the Dirtopia Trail Centre was created to provide active travellers with hiking and mountain bike trail information as well as serve as a base for permit sales for a range of trails in the Klapmutskop Conservancy.
FALKE FULL MOON HIKE
If you love the watching the sun set and the moon rise, then this weekend’s Falke Full Moon Hike at Delvera should be on your diary with hikes being hosted both Saturday (2 December) and Sunday (3 December).
The scenic 9.75km trail takes you on a 523 climb through the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy to the top of Klapmutskop with breathtaking panoramic views of the Winelands and Cape Town.
Starting from the Dirtopia Trail Centre, it takes approximately 1.5 hours to reach the top, but a shuttle service is available to transport children and elderly hikers to the start of the shorter 4,5km route. This option will take about 30 minutes to the top.
To make the most of your experience, it is recommended that you start hiking between 5pm and 6pm as you will be making your way back down at 8pm to be back at the centre no later than 9.30pm.
Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes and socks. Falke combines over a century of expertise with the most advance performance technology to offer consumers a wide range of carefully engineered hiking socks for ultimate wearer comfort. The latest ranges are available at the Dirtopia Trail Centre as well as online at www.falke.co.za.
