The Outdoors

The mountainous area offers great hiking routes, such as the Aasvoëlkrans Hiking Route which starts at the Bed & Breakfast. Other trails in the area include the Cogmans Kloof trail and the Bloupunt trail

Montagu has also been described as a rock climbers paradise, some would go as far as calling Montagu the Rock Climbing Capital of South Africa, and the infamous face ‘Legoland’ is situated 5 minutes driving from the B&B. See the Rock climbing in Montagu gallery for photos taken at Legoland.

The recently completed Castle in the Sky rock climbing route is situated on the Aasvoëlkrans Hiking Route, ten minutes hike from the B&B.

The best climbing conditions are found between May and September.
