Things to Do

Stretched out between the Groenland and the Kogelberg, Elgin is an outdoor paradise. Discover a playground of bike tracks, trails and hikes for everyone from toddlers to professional athletes. Zipline over fynbos and waterfalls, swim, fish, canoe or cruise down a river, picnic or relax in the sunshine. Elgin’s specialist adventure organisers will assist you in making the most of your natural surrounds. Abundant birdlife can be spotted throughout the area and night time drives often reveal owls, wild cats and small deer.

Elgin is also a superb wine region with many boutique wineries that welcome visitors by appointment or as walk-ins. For more about Elgin’s wine experience, visit

As one of the country’s top apple producers it seems natural that Elgin is home to craft cider in South Africa. Book a tasting experience and learn more about this exciting tradition renewed in Elgin.
