On Saturday I went on an awesome day trip and outdoor adventure with three other fabulous bloggers, all thanks to VÖOST. VÖOST is a new vitamin effervescent range brought to South Africa by Vital Health Foods. Taking a VÖOST effervescent is one of the simplest and tastiest ways to get your dose of vitamins and minerals and after my busy weekend, I’m already tucking into my stash.
Merentia, Candice, Meg and I were collected from the Waterfront by Eddie of SA Forest Adventures and our first stop was Hout Bay for a sand boarding session. It was a perfect summer’s day in Cape Town with blue skies and not a breath of wind. I was thankful for the gentle slope and beginner’s lessons!
Next stop was a visit to the penguin colony in Betty’s Bay, driving via the scenic and incredibly beautiful Clarence Drive.
After a lovely seaside lunch in Hermanus at Cafe Paradiso we headed to the SA Forest Adventures base camp in the Hemel en Aarde Valley. We got kitted up for ziplining which was definitely the highlight of the day for me. With safety harnesses and two experienced guides on hand, I felt safe at all times. We zip lined through the poplar trees and you get to choose your speed. Even though I’m scared of heights, I found myself flying from platform to platform. What an exhilarating experience!
Our last adventure for the day, was a a guided quad bike tour through the vineyards and fynbos up into the Fernkloof Nature Reserve for a breath taking view over Hermanus. I’m not a fan of quad bikes so this was my least favourite part of the day but the scenery still made it worthwhile.
