Experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Cape Winelands

Go back in time and experience the romance of a horse-drawn wagon drive in the beautiful Cape Winelands based at the historic Vrede en Lust Wine Estate, nestled in the foothills of the Simonsberg in South Africa’s most celebrated Franschhoek wine valley. The history of the farm dates back to 1688 and tells a story of vision, passion and pride. Treat yourself and a loved one or the whole family to the wonderful ambiance of by-gone days when life was a little slower and time was spent appreciating the natural beauty of the environment in great company. 

Wine Valley Adventures offers a variety of Horse Drawn Carriage Trails, ranging from one to two-hour trails to half-day wine tastings and lunches in the beautiful countryside. This is a truly wonderful experience off the beaten track. Our carriage driving teams are experienced and will ensure your safety, along with our safe and sound equine partners.

You need to arrive at least 30min before your booking for the briefing and helmet fitting to avoid going into your booked time slot. Should your arrive late, you will forfeit some of your riding time or your trip altogether. It is very difficult to hold your slot for you as we have other bookings running. You will have received your electronic Indemnity forms 48hr prior to your booking to allow you enough time to go through it. This is an electronic form which can be signed in on your computer or phone. Please note that everyone must sign in individually. Should participants be under 18, they will need to be signed in by their legal guardian.
