If you love the idea of exploring unspoiled stretches of the coastline and pioneering new trails, but hate the thought of carrying a crippling load on your back, then slackpacking is for you.

The Crayfish Trail Route links a series of quaint coastal towns and noteworthy farms In Elands Bay, Steenbokfontein, Lamberts Bay, Doring Bay, Big River Bend and Papendorp. On this tour, complete the beautiful trail with just a day pack on your shoulders. Every evening, rest at a comfortable hotel and start early next morning to complete another section of the trail. There are many different routes from which to choose. These include the Five-Day Trail and a choice of Two Day Trail – all of this only 2½ hours outside of Cape Town.

Get ready to enjoy a wonderful 2-day hike along beautiful coastal towns!!

Excellent Experience!
“A simultaneously relaxing and jam packed few days. The walking was comfortable and incorporates some amazing scenery. The guides are incredibly passionate and very keen to show you their local areas. There are plenty of highlights from just a few days, among them sundowners at Baboon point, fresh West Coast Seafood and a visit to Bird Island while all the way through there are some stunning views. The trip is tailored exactly to your needs so it all flows smoothly. I'll be back for sure!”
