5 Day Trail summary:
This option offers the ultimate experience of the West Coast over 5 glorious days! Your days are spent slack-packing (hiking without a backpack) on diverse types of terrain including sandy beaches, fynbos paths, jeep tracks, single track paths, and simply finding your way alongside river banks. Guests are treated to the best of what the West Coast has to offer including interacting with individuals from the local community, comfortable accommodation, tasty food and unique wines. This being is a slackpacking trail, all you need with you is a day-pack and camera. When guests arrive at their destination at the end of a lovely day your luggage will be waiting for you. The trail requires guests to be moderately fit. It is suitable for families (children above 12). A support vehicle (which moves your luggage) will be on standby, however, we stagger days to have some longer distances followed by shorter more activity/interest based days.

Summary:
Total distance hiked: 61 km * can be shortened
Furthest day: 18 km
Average distance 14 km
Terrain: beach, jeep track, single track, strandveld paths
