Enjoy the last sunset of the decade as warm hues dance in the sky over the iconic Table Mountain, offering stunning views of the Winelands. Take a moment to reflect on the year that was while enjoying your snacks on Klapmutskop paired with a glass of bubbly to toast and embrace the New Year! The New Years eve sunset hike will take place on Tuesday 31 December and is presented by sock specialists Falke and outdoor adventure experts Dirtopia. It will be held on Delvera Farm near Stellenbosch.
Starting from the Dirtopia Trail Centre, it will take approximately 90min to reach the top. It is recommended to arrive at 17h00 and not start the climb later than 18h45, to ensure you have the full experience, with the sun setting at 20h00. Farm vehicles are available to transport children and elderly hikers to the start of the shorter 4,5km route from the famous Pepper Tree.
The 9.75km Dirtopia Vineyard Trail is set in The Simonsberg Conservancy. The circular trail meanders through the vineyards, Renosterveld Conservancy and the majestic Yellow Wood Forest to summit Klapmutskop at 523m. With panoramic views of the Winelands and Cape Town and, of course, spectacular sunsets and moon rises.
The cost for the Falke New Years Eve Hike at Delvera is R200 for adults and R80 for children under the age of 10 and includes a glass of bubbly or juice, shuttles, permits and a map. Klapmutskop is part of Simonsberg Conservancy and part of the permit goes towards this non-profit organisation. For this reason, no dogs are allowed. Torches (which also for sale at Trail Centre) and something warm to wear are recommended for the walk down.
Bookings should be made in advance at the Dirtopia Trail Centre to avoid disappointment as space is limited. You are welcome to pack your own food to enjoy. Bookings and enquiries can be made via the website www.dirtopia.co.za or call 078 343 3572.
