About Outeniqua Hiking Trail

Set in the gorgeous Garden Route, this one of the most popular hikes, and one of the oldest.

A seven-day trail in its entirety it starts at Beervlei Hut, an old forest station, and finishes at Harkerville hut near another forestry station. Despite the fact that the trails can only be done from west to east, you can make it shorter by doing it in 2, 3, or 4 day installments.

The hike wends its way through ancient indigenous forests with incredible tree ferns and mountain scenery. It is a self-hike, well signposted, with accommodation in huts along the way.

The hike is peppered with the call of birds, sightings of the legendary Knysna loerie, rivers, streams, and towering yellowwoods, stinkwoods, ironwoods, white pears, beech trees and the occasional vervet monkey.
