3 day itinerary

See South Africa’s natural wonders, from Wolfberg Cracks to Maltese Cross. Take this journey to breathtaking rock formations and pools in South Africa’s Cederberg mountains.

Day 1 – Road trip, swimming, and camping

Drive: 250km | Hike: 2km round walk to the pools & swim

We will cross the Hottentot Holland mountain range that forms a natural barrier around the greater Cape Town. Driving over magnificent mountain passes on small roads, we will stop for a quick swim in the river, and have lunch at a traditional restaurant set in a town of Tulbagh, which was trekker’s last stop before entering the country’s wild and untamed interior to the north.

The menu offers the most truly authentic, traditional South African food. Crossing the mountain range, the scenery changes dramatically and we’ll head into the harsh landscapes of the Cederberg with its dramatic rock formations and rich colours.

We’ll make a stop at an oasis for refreshments before proceeding to our camp site. We’ll set up camp and make a short hike down the river to an amazing rock pool that offers a safe spot for swimming. We’ll make a fire and have a braai (food cooked on an open fire) for dinner and enjoy the atmosphere of the surrounding mountains.

Day 2 – Wolfberg Cracks & Wolfberg Arch and traditional dinner

Distance: 14km hike | Elevation gain: 720m

We’ll make a hike to the famous Wolfberg Cracks, and explore these massive and awesome fissures in the mountain. As an option, we can hike to the Wolfberg Arch directly after the Cracks and reach the camp back for dinner. Dinner will be a potjie, which is a traditional meal cooked in a cast iron pot that stands on 3 legs in the fire.

Day 3 – Hike to Maltese Cross or Disa Pools or Lot’s Wife or Wine Tasting. Drive back to Cape Town in the afternoon

Maltese Cross Distance: 6,5km hike | Elevation gain: 420m
The famous Maltese Cross is placed at the feet of Sneeuberg, the highest summit in the Cederberg range (2,027m). We will hike to this significant landmark while enjoying the open, surrounding landscape.

Disa Pools: 9km hike | Elevation gain: 200m
A stunning hike to the Disa Pool follows the Kromrivier valley, with admirable mountains rising above it and the river flowing constantly within 20m distance from the path. The walk is rewarded with a swim and optional jump into a beautiful rock pool. Home to the Disas – the largest orchids and floral symbol of the Western Cape.

Lot’s Wife: 4km (circular) | Elevation gain: 100m
Optionally, we will take leisure walk called Lot’s Wife. Its incredibly scenic views and rock structures are truly breathtaking.

Should you choose even more relaxing day, we can head to the Wine Cellar to taste some of the Cederberg Wines from the Dwarsrivier Wine Farm.

My boyfriend and me went on this trip after we booked a hike with Irmina and Marius and we really didn’t know what to expect.

We had an incredible time! Met so many cool people, slept in tents under the clear sky with thousands of stars and had 2 amazing barbecues. The camping place is in the middle of nowhere and really beautiful!

We would have never found this place and hike ourselves! This experience is so unique 😉 so if you like all the fun outdoor things – hiking, climbing, cliff jumping, chilling in rock pools, camping and just being in beautiful nature with amazing people that want you to have the best time – then we would 100% recommend this trip!

It’s super personal and a you won’t get rushed or anything like it’s the case with bigger tour operators.

You won‘t regret it and never do/ see all of the things that are offered there on your own – Marius and Irmina know what they are talking about 😉 really the opposite of a regular, boring tourist attraction/trip!

our guests’ Reviews

INCREDIBLE WEEKEND!!! Quick synopsis of non-stop (!!!) Cederberg adventure: INSANE rock climbing and hiking and cliff jumping, swimming near waterfalls, wild animal sightings, local food / drinks by the fireplace, wine tastings, star and galaxy de-briefing, floral and fauna, etc. This 3 day trip was incredible and it was the first part of our honeymoon! We didn’t know anyone going and we made 10 new friends from Belgium, Slovakia, Switzerland, Germany, South Africa, and France. Seriously, ANY TRIP THAT IRMINA DOES WILL BE 100% WORTH IT!
Incredible amount of knowledge about all things related to adventures around South Africa and beyond, awesome food cooked by Irmina at camp each day and night, care for every single person on the trip, positive attitude and genuinely great value for your time!
NIESAMOWITA WYCIECZKA, idealnie zorganizowana, wspaniała przewodniczka która ma dużą wiedzę i sie stara, nie bedziecie zawiedzeni!

Maggie & Pawel, Chicago, USA

Our Cederberg Adventure was amazing! We were looking for a trip with locals that would take us to places we would not find on our own and that is exactly what we got. This is an adventure off the path to magical places. However, please be aware that it took some hard hiking, sweating and sore muscles to get to those places. But definatly worth it!!!
Everything was very well organized and the communication easy. Most importantly, Irmina and Marius are two wonderful and very fun people. We loved spending time with them! There is no better way to explore the area than with them!

Jonas & Lizzy, Germany

My girlfriend and I had an amazing experience with Irmina and Marius, who not only guided us through wonderful landscapes but also made us laugh and shared amazing food with. Would recommend it to anyone who would like to see more of the beauty South Africa has to offer!
Thomas, Netherlands

The Cederberg Mountains are so beautiful. If you get the chance go and expierience them with Irmina. The hikes were amazing and the groups dynamic was wonderful.One of the best things I have done during my time in South Africa.
I can highly recommend this trip!!!!!
Anna, Germany

Amazing hikes, magical places and a unique experience. Irmina and Maruis have a huge knowledge about their flora and fauna. A perfect weekend trip for all nature lovers.
Selina, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Our trip to South Africa was an unforgettable experience thanks to the adventures organized by Irmina! We have recently hiked with Road Less Traveled in the Cederberg Mountains (sleeping in a tent under the African breathtaking starry sky ✨), visited the Cape of Good Hope, and experienced the most beautiful sunset at Lion’s head – all trips were amazingly organized, leaving room for how we feel and what our needs and skills are! We were all very well taken care of (I travelled with a 6-year old and friends), and felt Irmina’s support, experience and courage throughout the way. She is also a wonderful person to be around! Thank you for making our time so special ☀️🏞️🌿✨🦋

Kasia & Damianek, Poland

I recently went on a hike in the Cederberg mountains with my Irmina and it was an incredible experience! She did an amazing job leading us through the scenic trails, showcasing the natural beauty of the area. The mountains were stunning with breathtaking views and unique rock formations. Irmina made sure we were well-prepared and comfortable throughout the hike, always checking in and providing us with water and snacks. The highlight of the hike was definitely reaching the summit and admiring the view. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone looking for a challenging but rewarding experience in nature. Thanks to our friend Irmina for being an excellent guide and making this a memorable trip
