The town of Grabouw situated in the green Elgin Valley is the first to welcome you to the Overberg as you head in from Cape Town, and what a welcome it is! The rolling hills of orchards and vineyards that line the meandering road through the Valley bear the fruits for which the area has become well-known for and creates a sense of calm with a touch of adventure.
Home to an impressive bouquet of wine estates and fully stocked farm stalls, the Elgin Valley is a haven for foodies and wine connoisseurs. The unique and exciting flavours created from the fresh produce from the Valley will certainly delight plenty and fuel you up for the adventure that lies ahead. The area of Grabouw and the Elgin Valley plays host to some of the best hiking and mountain biking trails in the country along with other exciting activities like quad biking, horse riding and canopy tours. Be sure to stop by for some adventure in apple and pear country next time you visit the Overberg!
