Welcome to the Namaqua to Richtersveld MTB Tour, better known as the Moep-to-Sea, an early season MTB tour by Trisport which will give you just that. 

Starting off is a quick trip around Okiep of the surrounding area to take in some of the historical landmarks, including riding sections of the Copper Trail which is also part of the Namaqua Quest. 

The first stop is Nigramoep Slowliving Guest Farm which is the base of the tour.  Staring from the top of Kasteelberg, the change is noticeable in the environment as you descend into the harsh semi-desert of the Richtersveld, riding for most of the time on farm roads and trails over private property on the way to Kleinsee where the overnight stop is at Die Houthoop Guest Farm.

With frequent stops for coffee and snacks along the way, the pace is relaxed with plenty of time to stop for pictures or just to enjoy nature.  Port Nolloth greets you at the next overnight stop where the icy cold Atlantic Ocean and pink flamingos are on your doorstep.

The last leg of the tour will take you through some stunning parts of the Richtersveld with numerous “river” crossings all the way back to Nigramoep for a last evening of Namaqua hospitality to be enjoyed in the company of new friendships that were formed along the way.
