How we plan your adventure
Guests arrive the previous night at Porcupine Hills between 16h00 and 17h30, park car, welcome drinks and trail briefing, dinner and overnight.
P.S you’ll be happy to hear this is the profile of the mountain and not the trail.
While we highly recommend that our clients first walk our flagship four day Green Mountain Trail (60km’s), we also offer a three day Blue Mountain Trail (50km’s) Kogelberg experience and a two day Weekend Walking (22km) experience at R9 600 and R5 950 per person sharing respectively.
The Green Mountain Trail starts with check in on a Monday afternoon between 16h00 and 17h30, check out on a Friday after lunch. As this is a working farm experience we walk on week days so that hikers get the full experience of the trail.
The rate is R12 450 (incl vat) per person sharing. A single supplement (currently R4 600) is applied for single bookings. These rates apply till 1 August 2021.
Our rate includes Cape Floral Kingdom knowledgeable guides, four star farm stays, all meals country style, trail snacks, personalized wine tastings, a community walking stick and VAT.
Should your group of family and friends include non or part walkers, there are lovely activities at both lodges and the non-walkers have the opportunity to join most of the other activities with the group as well.
What people say about the Green Mountain Trail
We have just had a superb few days of hiking, learning, relaxing and indulging – a fantastic way to relax and unwind while exploring some of the Cape’s most beautiful mountains and fynbos. We walked 60km in 4 days under the guidance of Jeff and Nancy – both passionate and incredibly knowledgeable about the environment. We learnt so much each day while walking and were then spoilt with delicious homely food and beautiful accommodation. Alison and her staff attended to our every need and made us feel so welcome and at home. The wine tastings and lunches were superb.
Green Mountain Trail takes you high up in the mountains above Grabouw, Elgin and Bot River. Extraordinary experience lead by professional, knowledgeable & compassionate guides. Going the extra mile to make sure your experience is the best. Highly recommend.
The Green Mountain Trail was a great way to see four different areas around the Elgin Valley. Jeffrey and Patrick were very knowledgeable guides and their information about the area as well as plants and insects was amazing. Going through the different areas of fynbos and learning about the effects of fires on them,was great. The first day was long and strenuous in parts but beautiful.The following days were thankfully shorter! Definitely recommended.
