Nestled among the historic Hottentots Holland Mountains, the Elgin Valley is renowned for its apple and pear orchards, its greenhouse cut flowers and roses, production of high quality, cool-climate wines, and its thrill for adventure.

Be the first to experience the Winter beauty of the Elgin Valley and all it has to offer, from rail to two wheels, with our exclusive day trip package for two.

Start your day with a comfortable and quirky train ride to the Elgin Railway Market aboard a vintage steam engine locomotive with Ceres Rail Company. The steam train departs at 8am from the Harbour Bridge Hotel and chugs along through the scenic Overberg on the Ceres railway track, originally built in the early 1900s.

In between having your fill of the food, drinks and craft offerings at the Railway Market, inspired by Art Deco and Art Nouveau, enjoy a masterclass wine tasting offered by SóVinhos Wine Shop. Sóvinhos is a boutique wine store dedicated to promoting the very best of what Elgin and Botriver have to offer. Be inspired by their one-on-one wine tastings with well-known female Elgin winemakers as they celebrate women in the industry.

Get a taste of the Elgin adventure and take in the lush scenery on a special, one-hour Segway tour of the Oak Valley Estate, guided by Cape Segways professionals. Depart on an off-road ride through the working farm, winding through mountain bike trails, forests, dirt track, and orchards to explore all the farm has to offer.

After a day filled with food, wine, adventure and jaw-dropping views, settle into the cosy seats of the steam train as the engine rumbles and the whistle blows at the Elgin Railway Market stop, promptly at 2.30pm, for a memorable journey back to Cape Town.

Over 18s only.
