Things to do
The truth is, the whole of the Breede River valley has many places to visit, but if it's relaxation, good living, food and wine you are after, McGregor is the perfect place to forget city cares, change gear, just live, enjoy and connect with friends.
McGregor does however offer a variety of activities for the visitor to explore, from walking/hiking trails, the most spectacular being the Boesmanskloof trail from McGregor to Greyton, mountain biking, bird watching at hides in Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, to enjoyable meals and a chat at one of our coffee shops or restaurants. There is the Donkey Sanctuary and 4x4 trails to enjoy or stay in town and relax with an aromatherapy massage or Reiki session. Regular movies are shown at Temenos and Wahnfried for movie and opera lovers.
The village has a quaint Saturday Morning Market where you may purchase a wide variety of home made jams, chutneys, fresh organic vegetables, as well as many other products. Browse McGregor Properties for sale.
