outdoor Adventures

“Real Freedom Lies in Wildness, Not in Civilization” – Charles Lindbergh

Outdoor activities enrich our lives and provide a wide range of physical and mental benefits – they promote health and fitness while also boosting endorphins and helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression – and all in a beautiful open-air setting.

Whether it’s mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, horse-riding, paragliding, trail running, bird-watching or camping (click here for our camping brochure) – to name a few – you can find the perfect outdoor adventure activity to feel stronger, more vital and energized in the Bergrivier region, which also boasts some of the most pristine and untouched nature reserves, wetlands, lagoons, mountain landscapes and more.
