HEMEL EN AARDE AMAZING RACE
An Amazing Race through a Magical Valley. The Hemel en Aarde Amazing Race near Hermanus offers an unforgettable wine
experience in the Overberg.
The wines produced in this region are unique to South Africa and similar to ones from Northern France, due to a cool sea breeze and clay soil. Two of the most popular wines are a chardonnay and an exceptional pinot noir, but it’s not all about the wine!
With its picturesque mountains and breath taking views as a backdrop we will set off on an Amazing Race to discover the magic of this beautiful valley whilst having a whole lot of fun on a truly memorable event. This isn’t a race against the clock but a day of fun and discovery while sampling tasty treats, meeting the locals and learning about the area.
The group will be divided into smaller teams, who will be identified by team name and colour.
After a range of warm up activities and spirited ice breakers, Adventure Works Facilitators will brief teams on the days event.
Each team will receive a Race Book and Maps which they will use to navigate their way around the spectacular Hemel and Aarde Valley. They will stop at numerous check points where they could taste fine wines, delicious cheeses, koeksisters, Olives, solve riddles or complete tasks and challenges.
At each check point the teams will answer questions about the places they are visiting and complete a fun task. The tasks could include:
- Solving a giant puzzle
- A Blind Paddle on a dam
- Designing a wine label
- Creating a necklace to represent their day
- Playing a game of croquet or boules.
- Barrel Rolling activity
- Creating word art
Adventure Works facilitators will wrap up the fun with a light hearted prize giving, where the winning team will be showered with praise and glory!!
