>If you love the idea of exploring unspoilt stretches of coastline and pioneering new trails, but hate the thought of carrying a crippling load on your back, then slackpacking is for you.The stretch of coastline between the Berg and Olifants Rivers offers superb hiking opportunities which the Crayfish Trail takes full advantage of. There are a number of different routes from which to choose, including a Five Day Trail and a choice of Two Day Trails.
This option offers the ultimate experience of the West Coast over 5 glorious days! Your days are spent slack-packing on diverse types of terrain including sandy beaches, fynbos paths, jeep tracks, single track paths, and simply finding your way alongside river banks. Guests are treated to the best of what the West Coast has to offer including interacting with local communities, comfortable accommodation, tasty food and unique wines. This being is a slackpacking trail, all you need with you is a day-pack and camera. When guests arrive at their destination at the end of a lovely day your luggage will be waiting for you. The trail requires guests to be moderately fit. It is suitable for families (children above 12). A support vehicle will be on standby, however we stagger days to have some longer distances followed by shorter more activity based days.
We designed the perfect weekend/ mid-week getaway package for those who don’t. Choose from one of our Two Day Trail options which offer you the very best of that stretch of the coastline. Remember you are welcome to send us what you would prefer to experience and we can tailor a trip to suit you.
Please note that our Two Day Trials are subject to availability which may vary depending on the season.
