2-Day ARANGIESKOP AWAY HIKE - 2/3rd December!!!


Some Past Winter Summit VAVT!


Overnight Arangies Hut


Who is up for this ultimate Western Cape EPIC? Next weekend the EYB Hiking Vibe will attempt the 2-day Arangieskop Hiking Trail Epic in the magnificent mountains near Robertson.

In his book Weekend Trails Mike Lundy writes the following about Arangieskop:

"Despite being born as recently as March 1992, this is the mother and father of all trails in the Western Cape. It is destined to become to the Western Cape what the Otter Trail is to South Africa - the Prince of Trails. But like the Otter Trail, it is neither for the faint of heart nor for the weak of limb. There are many words to describe this two-day endurance test, but I'll settle for SPECTACULAR."

From all accounts, this will be a tough one, but for those who consider themselves fairly hiking fit, it really is considered to be one of the most beautiful trails in the Western Cape with the summit at well above 1700m. On both days, there are spots to VAVT and swim, and the overnight hut at the summit promises unbelievable views accross the Koo Valley.

We would like to make final bookings for the trail by Tuesday next week, so for those who are interested, please contact us on by the end of Monday. Once we have numbers we'll get into the nitty gritty of the trail!!

Who's keen to push their limits?




We are in the process of gathering all the pics from the EYB DINNER @ Relish on Saturday night which proved to be an amazing night for all 80 athletes!

A Full report will follow before the end of the week, but just an initial thank you to EVERYONE who created a vibe that was phenomenal to be a part of!!
