Montagu


Natural hot springs along Route 62


Favoured for its excellent wines, dried fruit, and muscadel grapes, Montagu acts as the gateway to the semi-arid Little Karoo. Route 62 – touted as one of the longest wine routes in the world – passes through the Langeberg mountains and eases its way into Montagu’s valley. At the edge lies its natural hot springs – a rejuvenating treat for the weary traveller.

Take the Lover’s Walk through the cliffs to the springs. For the more energetically inclined, the rugged terrain is ideal for mountain biking, kloofing, abseiling, and paragliding. The slow-moving Breede River offers boat trips and superb fishing opportunities. A tractor ride from Protea Farm will take you to the summit of Arangieskop where visitors can pause for a sip of muscadel along the way. The summit proffers magnificent views of the Keisie Valley, Breede River, Koo Valley, and Matroos mountains in the distance.

Montagu’s wide streets are bordered by 24 national monuments standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their original Cape Victorian housing. Residing in the 1975 Old Mission Church, the Montagu Museum showcases the history and heritage of the town. A short walk down the road will bring you to the Joubert House, which dates back to 1853, making it the oldest house in the area.
