There are a number of activities available; Franschhoek is only an hour from the centre of Cape Town, making it an accessible base from which to explore the Cape, and there is no need to limit your activities to the winelands. Other activities available in an around Franschhoek include: hot air-ballooning, golfing, horse-riding and cycling. There are also some lovely hiking trails in Franschhoek.

Along with fine-dining, wine-tasting is obviously one of the most popular activities in Franschhoek. This can be done with an organised tour-operator (half or full-day wine tours). Alternatively guests can wine-taste on horseback, or even on a rented bicycle or drive around with a map and advice that Mark and Katie can provide.
La Cabriere has recently started its own cookery school (and offers packages comprising accomodation and courses), headed by renowned Bouillabaisse chef Camil Haas and his wife Ingrid. Further information can be requested from the hotel.
