Activities on offer during the school holidays
Every school holiday Hermanus is flooded with both South African and foreign families who are here to enjoy this amazing coastal town. Dusty Feet realise that parents sometimes also need a break from their kids, and what better way to do that than signing your kids up to some outdoor fun!
During the December 2020 / January 2021 holiday, we will be offering some group activities over 4 weeks - 16 Dec - 08 Jan.
Bookings will be done via Quicket, but please be sure to contact us BEFORE you pay for your booking. As all our activities are weather dependent, we do not recommend booking too far in advance. Secure your spots by making contact first.
Mountain Biking | Snorkeling | Surfing | Hiking
Have your own wetsuit - be sure to take the discounted options for surfing and snorkeling!
Fernkloof Hikes - Join us on some nice hikes in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Besides hiking, your guides will also be able to inform you about the local plants, bird and animal life you see along the way. Our routes are mostly moderately challenging and should not be a problem for most adventurers, with the exception of the Three Dams route, which is longer and more challenging - children will require decent balance and sure footing.
Tidal Pool Snorkeling - Based at the Marine Pool, Hermanus, we will explore the underwater world that this amazingly diverse pool has to offer. Sessions are timed to the tide for maximum visibility. We won't just swim around - Dusty Feet will ensure kids see some animals and more up close and will tell them all they know about life in this pool and the inter-tidal zones of our coast.
Learn to Surf - Learn to surf with a Dusty Feet coach. These sessions are focused on stand-up surfing, using specialised equipment and experienced instructors, your kids will be standing in no time. Private sessions outside of holiday program can also be arranged.
Mountain Bike Skills Clinics and Outrides - Join us on the beautiful Hermanus Trails for a Basic Skills and practical workshop for beginners, to an organised outride for junior riders. Dusty Feet offer weekly outrides during the school term as an after school activity and do fun group rides with kids over the holidays in both Hermanus and occasionally Elgin.
Skills Clinics run over 2 consecutive days, with day one focusing on the very basics, while day two will take them off on a trail ride. Trail Training is for those who have been to a skills clinic and are comfortable on the trails, but perhaps not as fit as an avid mountain biker should be. Our MTB Outrides are 3hr rides which is aimed at the fitter young riders who are looking for a bit of a challenge.
