For the spiritually Zoom fatigued, a Camino experience could be your best route back to mindfulness. But how?

Travelling to Spain, to trace the Camino route, is all but impossible, at the moment?

That is where some clever domestic tourism entrepreneurship and escapism, find each other, in the form of the Western Cape Mountain Bike Camino. For only R3500 you have a plotted 600km route and ten nights of camping accommodation, from Franschhoek to Plettenberg Bay, which can be ridden in either direction. 

With the Mountain Bike Camino you can apply yourself to an immersive riding experience, without having to bother about route integrity, private land issues or accommodation. A series of GPS Google pins guide you along and each day covers approximately 60km of riding, with the shortest link being 20km and the longest, 90km.
