Biking through the mountains encircling in the Berg River Dam conservation area in Franschhoek is an energetic and exciting way to spend a day. High lookout points offer wonderful views of the Franschhoek Valley and on a clear day you can see Table Mountain in the distance. There are also countless walking trails in the surrounding mountains – particularly in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve or go wine tasting on horseback. And for golfing enthusiasts, the award-winning Pearl Valley golf course is nearby, in Val de Vie, Paarl.
