The Franschhoek Valley Walk offers an opportunity to experience the splendour of distinctive and spectacular countryside in Franschhoek first-hand, and in depth – covering a distance of some 30 km over 3 days. Your walking trip will be on a self-guided basis. You are guided by Route notes and maps which provide comprehensive route directions as well as local detail and highlights.
