Wine, Wildlife and Wetlands – welcome to The Plett Trail

Wine tasting or wildlife?
Culture or nature?
The Plett Trail brings all of these top tourism experiences together in a unique slackpacking experience.

The Plett Trail - DL Quick GuideMany top holiday destinations claim to have “everything on their doorstep”, but how many actually deliver? Plett Tourism is about to change that with the launch of The Plett Trail – a unique country adventure that will bring wine farms, multi-terrain hiking, cultural and marine ecology experiences and wildlife together in a luxury “slackpacking” package.

Slackpacking has become a trendy term with a popular following, enabling more people to enjoy the beauty of hiking in nature without the hassle of carrying a heavy backpack along the trail.

The Plett Trail will take slackpacking to the next level, offering the well-heeled traveller the luxury of hiking through some of the country’s most ecologically diverse terrain, while enjoying the fruits of the local wine industry along the way.

The Plett Trail - Rates for 2017The idea behind The Plett Trail is as simple as it is ecological. Instead of driving between all the diverse activities and organising multiple day trips to the many attractions in the area, Plett Tourism has created a way for tourists to get back to nature, hiking or horse riding a number of unique trails connecting wine farms with wetlands, flora with fauna and every coastal attraction in between.

The trail has been carefully crafted to immerse travellers in the breathtaking beauty of the area, while giving them a taste of the local wine agri industry. Travellers will always enjoy a variety of terrain and experiences that include wine tasting rooms; marine, bird and indigenous wildlife; and even a few cultural and paleontological wonders along the way.

The Plett Trail is led by a professional guide, well versed in the cultural and botanical importance of the area, and offers delicious meals en route and luxury accommodation at the end of each day, where guests will be met with their belongings, a hot shower and a beautifully prepared meal.
