Route & Fees

Your first circuit will take in around 6.8 miles (11km) of Robben Island’s incredible scenery, including a sweeping stretch of wild Atlantic coastline. Thereafter, you’ll settle into a 4.4-mile (7km) loop that winds through the forested ground and the village housing those who work on the island.

Except for a 200m saunter over a gravel-covered airstrip, the route is entirely tarred. It’s mostly flat, too, except for a mild incline where the road crosses the island. Support stations will keep walkers refreshed and offer first aid if required.
