Introducing the mini Formosa Coastal Camino – a 3-day slack packing trail from Nature’s Valley to Plettenberg Bay. For groups of 6-12 persons, on specific scheduled mid-month dates. Designed to suit guests who wish to do a shorter more scenic trail and who are residing in or visiting Plettenberg Bay.

The Camino concept – which is based on the idea of a spiritual journey or pilgrimage – takes clients through nature-based spiritual experiences, with the support of local professional guides. Walking distances are around 10 to 12km per day. Enjoy overnight stays on route. All walks are professionally guided, with local professional guides, transfer operators, and our local co-ordination, marketing and booking team.

The mini Formosa Coastal Camino Trail starts at the Groot River on the first night, for the first guided walk to Nature’s Valley. Overnight there before heading via the Salt River to the Crags for the second night. From there, the group will be guided via Forest Hall to the coast, and on to Enrico’s in Keurbooms, before being transferred to your next destination in Plett.
