Knysna is the gem of the Garden Route and this 3-hour guided tour brings you to its treasures, including the Lagoon, the Waterfront, Leisure Island, the Heads, and so much more. All at a gentle pace to make the most of the sights.
In the morning or afternoon meet at the Turbine Boutique Hotel, situated in a marina spread over 90ha and consists of 19 man-made islands linked by 21 arched bridges and surrounded by 25ha of tidal waterways. Ride along the banks of the Lagoon and stop to admire its varied bird life. This sparkling body of water is where five freshwater rivers, flowing from the Outeniqua Mountains, meets a surge of sea water from the Indian Ocean. Marking this meeting place are two towering sandstone cliffs known as the Knysna Heads. With a bit of effort, you'll cycle up to the Heads where you can look down on the narrow stretch of water that has been the nemesis of many ships in the past. The views are spectacular are you can see the whole of Knysna and beyond.Then, ride back to town via the lovely Leisure Isle where you feel lost in time. After, cycle through the waterfront with its many art galleries and eateries, stopping for refreshments, served up with a view over the water.
