Description Gallery Map Activities


Hike up the Hog

We are an easy-vibe, out-doorsy and nature-lover type of Backpackers with a touch of the mythical. You will find Away with the Fairies Backpackers perfectly situated right at the entrance of Hogsback village, while right on the edge of the cliff over looking the incredible Hogsback Mountains and the oldest forest in South Africa.

Once here, you are surrounded by the Amatola mountains, countless waterfalls and the multiple hiking trails in Auckland nature reserve. The hiking trails lie right at our front door. You can enjoy all these hikes for a single ZAR10.00 conservation fee. The trails range from easy strolls to serious hikes, hence please do not forget your map at reception.

After exploring the forests you will easily understand why it has been claimed that so many famous artists and writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Picasso have found some of their inspiration here.

Secluded away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle, it was really amazing to just refresh my batteries and mind here!
