48 hours in picture perfect Paarl

Posted on 15 March 2024 By Savanna Douglas

The little town of Paarl is located around 50 kilometers away from the Mother City.

The ‘dorpie’ is known for its old Cape Dutch-style architecture, and is nestled in the heart of Cape Town’s Winelands – there’s no shortage of good vineyards.

The region is a popular spot for hiking and rock climbing enthusiasts, but there are a variety of other activities available – including wine tasting, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, picnicking, spa visits and more. In this small Western Cape town, you’re spoiled for choice.

To help you narrow down the to-do list and shave a few pennies off expenses, we’ve rounded up the best accommodation and activity bargains for a weekend itinerary in Paarl:

This tour, hosted by Wines of Paarl, is the perfect activity for wine enthusiasts, taking visitors through the heart of the Winelands on a wine safari adventure.
