Beloftebos Trails and Adventures

Where Journeys Begin

A mountain biking, trail running and hiking heaven awaits outdoor enthusiasts at Beloftebos Trails and Adventures, in the Overberg’s Stanford Valley. The professionally designed MTB trails on the Beloftebos Farm, weave their way across rivers, through forests, along single dirt-tracks, across gravel roads and up steep ascents. The seasoned mountain biker, trail runner and hiker can test themselves on more technical routes, whilst others can embark on a more leisurely journey along shorter trails. Guided tractor tours through the Floral Kingdom to the very top of the Akkedisberg, with its panoramic views of the Overberg’s rolling hills and the Hermanus Lagoon, are also offered. For those who want to enjoy the Beloftebos experience for more than a day, Beloftebos Trails and Adventures can arrange accommodation and orientation to other exciting adventures and activities in the area.
