Recommended Posts

Event Name: Trappist Ways Cycle Tour
When: 8 May 2019 - 12 May 2019
Where: Underberg, KZN, Kwazulu-Natal
Category: Road

A 4 night 4 day cycle tour through Alan Paton countryside of Ixopo, Creighton and Underberg visiting Trappist Mission stations. Guesthouse accommodation, Mission stay, all meals, fully guided with history tours, luggage transfers and backup support.


Join us on an extraordinary journey following in the footsteps of the legendary Abbot Francis Pfanner, a charismatic and eccentric religious leader who was instrumental in promoting the Trappist Mission way of Catholicism in South Africa in the late 19th century. Cycling through the gorgeous countryside in which Alan Paton described in Cry the Beloved Country as “the fairest valley in Africa”, we visit four magnificent mission stations in 5 days, each one an architectural masterpiece.

Through the interpretation of local tour guides and resident priests and monks you will learn about the history of the Trappists and their Missions; fascinating folk-lore and legends, the landscape, and the fauna and flora of this wonderful pilgrimage. With back-up support, luggage transfer and very manageable, relatively flat daily distances, this is a fully-guided trip designed for the average cycle tourist who is interested in countryside, architecture, fine food, local history and culture.
