More about 7 Day Permit

This is a 7 Day Permit to this mountain biking experience that can be challenging as you wish to make it. The spectacular mountains surrounding the Berg River dam in Franschhoek is the biking adventure land to which you gain seven days access (starting 08:00 and ending 18:00 each day) when you purchase this permit. You will start at the entrance on Robertsvlei Road and discover miles of tracks and single tracks charting breathtaking routes through the mountains. Parking is available at the gate where you will present your permit(s) to gain access. You have both challenging and leisurely rides through the mountain fynbos available in the Berg River Dam conservation area. You can reach high lookout points for wonderful views overlooking the Franschhoek Valley, the Boland mountainscapes and the landscape towards the southern ocean. Table Mountain also features in the distance. There is an abundance of birdlife to surprise and entertain birding enthusiasts.
