Montagu

Relax in the healing waters of natural hot springs, hike to mountain lookouts and discover historical architecture at this picturesque town on the Western Cape. 

Montagu sits in a region of natural beauty surrounded by the Langeberg Mountains. Visitors are drawn to the town by its hiking trails and mountain scenery, historical buildings, bodegas and rejuvenating hot springs.

Stroll through the town center and picture yourself in a late-Victorian agricultural village. Built in 1853, Joubert House is Montagu’s oldest dwelling and one of 14 Dutch Cape and Victorian-era monuments on Long Street. Check out the collection of medicinal herb plants in the house’s garden. Find displays of medicinal plant research, period clothing and antique furniture at the Montagu Museum, located in the Old Mission Church. See local art at the KWV Art Gallery.

Visit the Montagu Nature Garden to spot indigenous plants and wildflowers. Follow the 1-mile (1.7-kilometer) walking trail that leads to a hilltop and enjoy uninterrupted views of the Cape Fold Mountains. Get involved in Montagu’s community spirit at the weekly Montagu Village Market, where local vendors offer arts and crafts, antiques, olive oils and delicatessen goods.

If you simply want to relax then visit Avalon Springs, where you can reenergize your body in the town’s famous hot springs. Pools of varying temperatures reputedly possess healing qualities and have been used since the 18th century.

Scenic walks, nature trails and mountain hikes abound in Montagu’s surroundings. Walk along the peaceful Keisie River or hike past craggy cliffs and mountain streams to the summit of Bloupunt Peak. Spot over 50 bird species at Leiwater Dam or join a cruise along the Breede River. Take a tractor ride to the top of the Arangieskop Hiking Trail, which affords spectacular views of the Langeberg Mountains.

Montagu forms part of the Klein Karoo Wine Route. Visit a bodega to experience one of South Africa’s most diverse wine regions. Various microclimates allow for the production of dry wines, pot-stilled brandies and ports, among others.

Montagu is a two-hour drive along the scenic Route 62 from Cape Town. Rent a car to get here and to explore the surrounding countryside.
