If you love the outdoors, sunsets and moonrises the Falke Full Moon Hike at Delvera should be on your December diary with hikes offered on 2, 3 and 31 December.
The scenic 9.75km trail takes you on a 523 climb through the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy to the top of Klapmutskop with breathtaking panoramic views of the Winelands and Cape Town.
Starting from the Dirtopia Trail Centre, it takes approximately 1.5 hours to reach the top, but a shuttle service is available to transport children and elderly hikers to the start of the shorter 4,5km route. This option will take about 30 minutes to the top.
To make the most of your experience, it is recommended that you start hiking between 17h00 and 18h00 as you will be making your way back down at 20h00 to be back at the centre no later than 21h30.
A special New Year’s Eve Falke Full Moon Hike on Sunday, 31 December is a lovely way to bid 2017 farewell. The cost for this special occasion is R150 per adult and R60 for children younger than 10 years and includes glass of bubbly or juice to toast to a prosperous 2018.
