Ancient mountain forests, plunging sea cliffs, boulder-strewn beaches, hidden bays, coastal promontories and fynbos ridges combine along a route legendary for technical terrain and toughness. This is the Grail of Trail. The legendary marathon distance trail race runs along the restricted Otter hiking trail, only normally accessible to 12 hikers daily for the rest of the year. Trail runners from all over South Africa and the world gather once a year to run the trail during the event, to immerse themselves in epic river crossings, stunning indigenous forest and the amazing vibe surrounding it all. Join us for a Runcation Tour to Otter 2019.

We have put together a fun week of trail and tourism to guide you to Otter, including time in Cape Town, checking out local trails, then up to Nature’s Valley for Otter weekend, the Event itself, and finishing off with a Big Five safari.
