Ask anyone who has ever visited the Ceres Valley to describe the region in one word and they’ll all undoubtedly answer ‘magical’. This hidden gem is sheltered by towering mountains and can only be visited by making your way through the infamous mountain passes, crafted back in the 19th century.

Along with being celebrated for its luscious deciduous fruit and awe-inspiring scenery, unsurprisingly, Ceres is also known for its motorbike tours.

Because the scenery is so breath-taking, there’s no doubt that you’ll want to kick-back, relax and admire it from afar at least for a little while. However, there’s also plenty of opportunity to get up close and personal with all the beauty that this valley has to offer.

What you can expect to see

Savour the jagged rock formations, colourful fruit trees, winding roads and wallow in that trademark rustic vibe that makes even those far away from their usual lifestyle, feel at home. As you ride through the quiet roads, you’ll undoubtedly feel refreshed and peaceful. This is the beating heart of the Western Cape and will surely be a highlight for you on your trip.

What the town has to offer

If you care to hop off of the bike for a couple of hours, we also recommend stopping by the Ceres Transport Riders Museum. Transport riders played a huge role in the development of Ceres, and this quaint museum seeks to commemorate that fact. This is the place to be if you’re keen to learn more about the history of the area and see some traditional wagons, many of which were the first to make the trip to Ceres via the newly completed Michell’s Pass back in the mid-1800s.
